My favorite part about planning a menu is the trials! These dishes were the final contenders for our main course. We took photos, then we ate them.
Almond Crusted Halibut
with Rapini in Garlic Onion Nage
Grilled Lamb Chops with Truffle Potatoes
and Mint Braised Artichokes
Last week the squabbling asians cooked a four-course dinner party for eight for the Dartmouth Save-the-Cabin benefit. The dinner was held at the gorgeous home of an alumnus who had invited three of his college classmates and their wives. Oh, and they had the most amazing kitchen ever!!! We spent the morning shopping at the famed Ferry Building farmer’s market where we got some fresh, local ingredients and behold the fruits of our efforts!
