Dcarch....

You always amaze me with your cooking style. Just wonderful.

 

For the past couple of days I008.JPG009.JPG012.JPG015.JPG016.JPG019.JPG020.JPG024.JPG022.JPG026.JPG005.JPG have been planning a nice meal with my parents and some close friends of theirs. The menu I planned was posted on Facebook and I managed to come through with the menu....so here it is in short form.

 

 

Tonight for my father and mother and another couple who are close to them I decided to make a menu that would appeal to the flavors of my father's palate. That being said I made the following;

 

Homemade pates and crackers (posted in another thread), ambrosia spiced fruit reduction (coconut, apples, pineapple, raisins and spices ) to serve with double brie , corinth grapes...etc.

Pinot Grigio (Barefoot – which won a gold)

 

Apps; Shrimp and avocado salad, Med. Salad , wild mushroom soup with thyme and white wine and truffle oil.

Vina Esmeralda Torres (nice with seafood)

Passion fruit sorbert

Vin D'alsace Willm – Pinot gris

 

Haddock with 3 pepper and dill sauce with parsley and cream , white wine, roe and capers, flowered buttered beets and carrots and a sprig of thyme.

Dessert was ; Pot au Chocolat with Grand Marnier, topped with a lace of 35% cream , a square of dark chocolate with red peppercorns , a chocolate dipped cherry au brandy, candied rose petals, and abricot mousse with a coulis of abricot reduction and spearamint leaves and 3 balls of cantaloup. Black tea with a baton of crystallized sugar , cinnamon stick.

 

I made the flower arrangement, and decorated the table as usual.

 

It was a great evening....but as I served everything I thought of all of you......how maybe you would be happy letting me cook for you. Would you even like it ? For some of you …I knew I might even be pleasing your palate, I took a few pics wanting to share.

Like my friends before me....a passion, a true passion.....all inspire me.

 

I count you all as my friends and I wished we were all together tonight to celebrate our friendship.

 

Just wanted you all to know that I thought of you all.......and wished you were here at my table , my friends, mes grands amis .

 

You inspire me to be better at the thing I love the most.....the art of cooking.

Que la vie est belle avec toi.

Nice.  Very nice.  Had I done it, I would have cropped out the soda can in that one shot of the table.

 

That shrimp and avocado salad looks like something I might try in the near future.  Well, it ALL looked good, the salad just happens to be something that might fit in well with what I have already planned for sunday's dinner.

post #1538 of 1539

No mystery.....they had not arrived yet and my husband sat down with his soda .....no big deal.
