Whenever my girlfriend comes into town we like to at least spend one night in cooking together, playing music, and dancing in the kitchen. We like to cook things that take a while to put together so we have a lot of time to hang out and have fun. Sauces that have a fair number of ingredients and that need to simmer for a while and be stirred every so often are pretty ideal. Any ideas? I live fairly close to the coast so fresh seafood is always available...shrimp, scallops, etc.
Thanks in advance.
