This New Year’s Eve Evan and I had a dinner party for 6 of our good friends. We have never been really big on going out to bars/restaurants/ downtown for NYE, so we decided that we would do a 6 course meal and invite everyone stay at the house. It worked perfect we all chipped in $20 a person and had a meal that was AMAZING and no one had to drive home afterward 🙂
You may notice something trending in this menu… can you guess what I got for Christmas from my Fry Daddy???
Here’s how it went down…
First Course: charcurterie sampler : chicken liver pâté, NY chorizo, sottocenere with truffles, cheddar farmstead block, olives, hot and sweet pickles and peppers, with a cracker and bread assortment
Second course: pizzette with fried brussel sprout leaves tossed with crispy bacon and golden raisins drizzled with a tarragon and meyer lemon cream sauce and parm shavings
Third course: 20 hr sous vide spiced pork belly on top a collard and mash mound
Fourth course: 5 wild mushroom risotto with 110 min egg
Fifth course: sous vide duck breast topped with hibiscus flower and fried shallots on a bed of arugula
Sixth course: strawberry and champagne shortcake with dark chocolate snow and whipped cream sprinkled with pop rocks
If you were wondering…I got a Sous Vide Supreme!
HAPPY 2013 EVERYONE! CHEERS!
