Since both Russell and Savi love lamb
and especially meats that are on the bone,
rosemary infused baby lamb chops
with pomegranate glaze was perfect!
nestled on a bed of heart shaped
Israel cous-cous primavera,
accompanied by grilled asparagus bundles,
and roasted veggies,
deliciously sweet jerusalem artichokes
(neither from Jerusalem nor an artichoke)
roasted whole shallots
+ cumin scented roasted cauliflower.
Starfruit, commonly used in Trinidad,
where Savi hails from
made a delicious and beautiful garnish.
The stars are aligned for this fantastic couple!
Originally for dessert the Valentines menu
included desserts that centered around chocolate
- however, that was the only
request that Russell had
"As far as dessert
I'm more of a vanilla,lemon, citrus, creamy, crunchy type. "
in that mode we created the following delectable dessert...
Not Your Mama's Baked Alaska Finale
Grilled Pineapple +
Rosemary Brown Sugar Shortbread Base
with Vanilla Bean Speckled Ice Cream
and Meyer Lemon Meringue
Flambeed Tableside with Meyers Rum
bellies full with delicious food and bubbly champers
the couple dance in each others arms
and slip away while the caterers cleanup
and leave them on their own
slipping hazelnut champagne truffles in a heart shaped box
atop their pillow before closing the door quietly
and driving back to the kitchen.
P.S. this was a real event that we catered last year for a special Valentine's 40th Birthday Celebration for two very special clients.
