Or just schizophrenic?
There are moments that define that “you’re back”.
In New Zealand, it’s having fish and chips and a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc on the wharf in Mapua.
Here it’s going to Klaus and Isabel Gres’s wine bar and – while you’re chatting with Isabel about the vacation – Klaus turning up and saying ” You have to try this 2009 Riesling. Just bottled. It’s got so much fresh fruit, it’s almost a New World wine”, grabbing 2 glasses and filling them.
Just to try.
And then there’s the legendary Appenheim Flammkuchen: paper-thin pizza dough, fresh sauerkraut in a light cream sauce, Leberwurst, Blutwurst.
It’s a hard call….
