Dinner tonight was not at all what I planned, but plans go astray sometimes.
So it was a very simple capellini with clams (done in wine and garlic) w\ith Chinese chives and coriander leaf.
This was followed by three Hong Kong style egg tarts.
OK. I confess. There were four, but here there is a taboo against serving four of anything, even to yourself. The Chinese for "four" and for "die" are homophonous, so I ate one earlier. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it
