Planning a 5 course meal

mottomatic | Feb 16, 2013 03:02 PM

Okay so my boyfriend loves going to nice restaurants to do tasting menus, but after a less-than-stellar meal last time he was kind of bummed. I want to cook him a really nice 5 course meal, and am just struggling to put together a menu that's going to taste great, but also wont drive me crazy trying to do it. I'm a reasonable cook--not world-class, but I have the patience to stick with more time consuming and complicated recipes.

I know I want to do a fun amuse bouche, a fish course, and a meat course (the boy likes meat), but beyond that I'm just not sure. I lean towards french and asian food, but I'm not sold on it. Any suggestions for progressions, or particular recipes you've tried that have worked great?
