MANGIA PESCE

今日は久々になにも予定がない休日。

と言うと、休日出勤でがんばっているメンバーには本当に申し訳ないのだが、ここ最近ずっと実家に帰っていろいろしなくちゃいけなかったりで、休みらしい日が皆無だったのだ。ずっとそんなペースだと生きている心地がしないので、今日はリフレッシュに徹することにする。

ゆっくり起きて犬の散歩をしつつ、買いにいく暇もなかった日用品の数々を買い足す。ついでにお昼も済ませてしまう。あとは家事をしたり本を読んだりしながら、午後のまどろみ。このような「何事もない日常」というのが、実は一番貴重であるということを深く再認識する。
それにしても、家の中や近所というのは、どうしてこんなにも落ち着くのだろうか? うちの犬は一度も通ったことのない道を行こうとするといつもソワソワしだすのだが、その気持ちは結構わかる気がする。「自分の匂いが届く範囲(=なわばり)」という感覚は、野生を失った我々人間にも少しは残っているものなのかもしれない。

夜はちょっと遅めの晩ご飯。二週間遅れになってしまったが、5回目の結婚記念日ということでいつもの「千駄ヶ谷・MANGIA PESCE(マンジャペッシェ)」に行く。

ここはそんなに高いお店ではないのだが、何かの節目のときにはよく使うところ。もちろん東京にはもっと格上のイタリア料理店も数多くあるし、記念日なんだからそういうところの方が特別感があっていいのかもしれないけれど、今のわたしにとってのベストは間違いなくここ。程よい緊張感を持ちつつもフランクで小気味よいサーヴ、シンプルに素材の力を生かした料理(野菜と魚にフォーカスしているところも◎。店名は日本語で「魚食べてね」の意)、非常にレベルの高いドルチェ....etc、一言で言えば「ウマが合うお店」である。

コースメニューに関しても基本的にはリクエストベースで、大抵の要求には応えてくれる。今日の素材をワゴンで持ってきてくれて、好みを聞きつつ面白い提案もしてくれる。こういうキャッチボールは勉強になる点も多く、ある種オーダーメイド的な満足感も得られるので非常に好きである。
今日は前菜に岩手産の牡蠣を3つ、サンダニエレ産の生ハム(パルマ産よりわたし好み)、焼き蛤、バーニャカウダ。パスタは生海苔のクリームソースのリングイネとポルチーニ茸のスパゲッティ。メインにホウボウと下仁田葱のアクアパッツァ。最後はドルチェで盛り合わせ。今日は洋梨を緑茶(!)を入れてコンポートしたものがあり、これがすごく印象的であった。
生ハムを一口食べた瞬間にフルーツと一緒に試したくなり、若干時期外れなのでダメもとでイチジクをリクエストしてみたところ、「生はもうないけど、ドライじゃねぇ。。。」としばし考えた後に「あ、ドルチェで出してる次郎柿(皇室御用達でもある甘柿の王様。原木は静岡県の天然記念物指定)でどうでしょう?」とのこと。すばらしい、こういう機転が最高である。もちろん、この組み合わせも最高であった。

おなか一杯になるまでおいしいものを食べ、カフェラテを飲みながらその余韻を楽しむ。まさに至福、幸せなひととき。

そのまま帰ろうかと思ったが、腹ごなしになぜか三軒茶屋の「BIG-ECHO」でカラオケ。club DAMの新端末がFeliCa対応していたのにはビックリした(やるな、第一興商)。

The issue is something which too few folks are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I came across this in my search for something concerning this.

First off I would like to say terrific blog! I had a quick question which I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing. I have had a hard time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there. I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips? Appreciate it!
