Every year I host a NYE party for 12. We usually have 8 courses and sort of do a small plate menu as we eat usually until midnight. I am starting my planning and need some suggestions. We are all foodies and we pair each course with wine, This is what I did last year,
Amuse Bouche-Gulf shrimp in filo with spicy chili sauce
Appetizer-Escargot a la Provence
Salad- Baby arugula, heirloom tomatoes, roasted pine nuts, egg plant croutons, Aceto balsamico and evoo
Shellfish-Lobster crepe with Sherry cream sauce
Soup-Sopa de tortilla
Entree-Sage crusted Colorado Lamb chop served with cous cous feta, dried cherry balsamic reduction
Cheese-Trio of fromage, Manchego, walnut Gourmandise, and Rossini
Godiva milk shake and White chocolate cream brulee.
This is such a fun night everyone gets very dressed up and we set the table beautiful and I usually hire 2 staff people to serve. Anyway suggestions would be great .
