I'm heading back home in about a month after being away at university, and I'm planning a meal to completely blow my family/possibly some of their friends away. I'm not going to tell them exactly what I'm serving... I'm going to give them a menu that has a simple, not-so-upscale food on it, and then surprise them with a fun play on that idea.
So here's what I'm thinking:
Chips and Dip - Rosti Potato cakes with creme fraiche and chives
Vegetable Soup - Roasted cauliflower soup with rosemary and parmesean
Fruit Salad - Watermelon with aged balsamic vinegar, mint and feta
Poutine - Crispy frites with lobster and Bearnaise sauce
Jello - Chilled Lemon and Earl Gray Gelee (palette cleanser)
Spaghetti - Fresh tagliatelle with braised veal ragu
Pop - Fresh ginger and lime soda (palette cleanser)
Meat and Potatoes -Roast Filet of Beef, bordelaise sauce, roasted parsnips, wilted greens
Pudding - Sticky Toffee Pudding with candied bacon ice cream.
I will definitely be posting pictures!
