Sunset in the City with Piper Sonoma
As much as we enjoy our days which are filled with writing, taking more photos, eating ice cream (we are still looking for a real Gelato in a sugar cone) and lots of iced coffee from ‘Cafe Primo,’ the one part of the day we look forward to most here in downtown LA are the spectacular sunsets that you just wanted to capture in your champagne glass Judit style or write a poem for as Corina did after she ate the decadent Chocolate Terrine and Raspberry filled Beignets from Bottega Louie patisserie. These Beignets were airy and fluffy with a not so sweet raspberry jam filling and it seemed to in perfect balance with this delcious Rosé. The Chocolate Terrine was an alright pairing, but it did not completely enhance the champagne so we would not recommend it unless you really need chocolate at the moment then try it with chocolate that has a raspberry or orang flavor. Next time we will try it with a fruit tart!
Sunset in the City
The sunset washes the horizon of the city, like the iridescent scales of a salmon swimming upstream.
He glitters in the depths of mystery, revealing but shallow glimpses of all that he has seen.
Like pinpoints of copper that illuminate the skyline this night.
The evening starts softly treading in pastels of light, and as time progresses those take vivid flight.
Soft petals touch your lips, as you take another sip of the evening ambrosia.
It isn’t too much, yet more satisfying than a summer day mimosa.
With the burnt umber of dawn sinking into the slate gray.
One can only watch as night takes hold and wait for the coming day.
~ Poem by Corina
