I once made a Thanksgiving meal with 11 courses. 8 guests.
Started with an amuse.
Followed by pick grapefruit with white cherry.
Oyster Rockefeller variant with artichoke hearts in place of oyster shell.
White shallot soup
Salmon en croutte
Turkey, walnut stuffing, sweet potato, asparagas
Hot dessert with coffee
I paired wines with each course, and the whole thing took 8 hours for me and my guests. It was wonderful. I have never attempted anything so grand ever again. I would do so in a heart beat if the opportunity presented. Anyone else strive this way, or am I a little weird in my aspirations?
