Happy 2016 to all my wonderful readers

A day in advance, I know, but team Elitistreview, including Kisu the Elitistreview office cat, would like to wish you a happy new year. May 2016 be the best year ever filled with love, happiness, wonderful food and extremely fine wine.

Team Elitistreview, but not Kisu, will be washing away all the vile memories of a hideous 2015 with Pierre Peters Champagne and, who knows, maybe some Burgundy too. We sincerely hope 2016 is a better year for us, as 2015 held countless traumas for us as our priceless collection of wine being plundered by some bastard thieves (I’m still crying to think of it now) and my right hand, thanks to cubital tunnel syndrome, being in so much pain that even typing this is making me cry even more. Happy New Year, all my dear and greatly appreciated readers!
