Dinner Party 1

My wife and I like throwing dinner parties.  This meal was a celebration of a recent engagement.  They asked me to cook them dinner, so I gave them this.


Course 1

Unfortunately, I can’t find the photos.

Ankimo & Hamachi

Course 2

Ankimo with scallion, Hamachi with Jalapeño, soy sauce, and yuzu juice.   


Pea Soup

Course 3

Chilled pea soup with Parmesan foam and bacon.  One of my favorite soups.  I’ll post a recipe for this another day.

Salmon 104 °F

 Course 4

I got this recipe from Chef Steps.  This is not their best recipe.  The salmon tastes like mushy cured salmon.  I made the mistake of over-whipping the horseradish cream in my isi whipper.

Roberta’s Octopus

Course 5

This recipe is from Roberta’s Cookbook.  The whole book is great, but I especially love this recipe.  I’m going to do another post on just this recipe, so be on the lookout for it.

Grand Marnier Soufflé

Course 7

Sometimes there’s nothing better than the classics.  Sorry about the focus.  I was in too much of a rush to jump in…
