Teamfat I've never made risotto with beef stock.  I guess I will have to try that, it seems odd to me but if you say it works then it works.  Your original plan was my original plan too hehe.

Probably too late but I agree with a nice sweat in butter before adding to casserole.
Stay warm.

I figured but since I hadn't heard back by the time I started cooking I wouldn't risk it.  So I made creamy cheesy potatoes and ham gratin.  And I made smothered pork chops with an onion and mushroom gravy.  I didn't take a picture because it was a big brown mess so you'll have to take my word for it that it was delicious.  I did get snapshot of dessert though :)  I've made creme caramel before and this time I took it out before it was perceivably set.  The texture was extremely creamy, it was great.

The sauce was a better use of the mushrooms IMO.

American umami lol (have you kept up with the umami thread?)

Your dessert looks amazing!

The hubs got his fave dessert....lol not that get your mind out of the gutter young lady!

Single layer chocolaty chocolate cake with raspberry ganache and a shiny yummy choco glaze.

The glaze has Lyle's Golden Syrup in it.

Addictive yes but I was soo tired of looking at raspberries and strawberries and chocolate!

My own fault as usual I took on too many orders (so shoot me I am greedy lol).

I'll check out that unami thread thanks.

 

Choclately chocolate cake with ganache and choco glaze eh?  It never cases to amaze me how much chocolate people can handle, not me I like chocolate as an accent on any dessert but I'm simply in awe of anyone that can stomach such a load!!  It's like staring directly into the sun or sitting down to a big bowlful of butter. Chocolate power!

In fact I made a dessert that wasn't far off a flan (a far aux pruneaux) - but I'll post that in another thread later. But in my opinion the creaminess (as you described) lends itself perfectly for the end of a romantic dinner.

I'm still remarking to myself the number of possibilities such few ingredients lend themselves to dessert-wise alone. A bit of milk, flour, sugar, butter and dessert is served. And I didn't even use flour or butter!!
