In early July, we're hosting a going away party. There will be lots of kids so, basically, I'm planning a cookout (pulled pork, burgers, etc.).
I do want to make one fancy appetizer and I don't care if kids like it.
I would like to do Thomas Keller's cornets with salmon. However, I want to do three riffs on it and would like advice.
#1: Per the recipe
#2: With plain creme fraiche and American paddlefish caviar
#3: With a basil/herb cream cheese and Keller's tomato sorbet
And, if the cornets fail or I can't make enough of them, could you suggest a (preferably bought...time will be short if the cornets fail) cracker/base to use in more of a canape format?
