Help with NYE menu

kellypw | Dec 9, 2006 06:11 PM

We throw a fairly elaborate dinner party every year for 6-8 people on NYE. I'm having problems pinning down what to do for the main course for this years menu - my husband wants us to do a dry-aged prime rib roast (we've done it before, it comes out fabulous!), but I think it may be too much given the rest of the menu - any thoughts? I was leaning toward roasted racks of lamb or seared duck breasts. I've tested all of the recipes except for the foie gras- TIA!!!

Passed hors-
Crab stuffed phyllo cups
Cucumber Smoked salmon rounds

First course:
Butternut squash soup with frizzled leeks and cumin spiced crème fraiche

Second course:
Seared foie gras w/melted tangerines

Third course:
Baked herbed goat cheese salad (with rocket or other spicy green)

Main: ??

Cheese course << not sure if I should even do one?

Poached pears in sabayon with chocolate/apricot sauce-
