So on Saturday we had market cod, asparagus (some from the garden)
wonderful salad. There were other amazing meals along the way, but the
next one I have
pictures of involved
Rachael too and was a
version of Kit's corn
bread and southern fried chicken. Later in the week we
had a wonderful steak with marinated stuffed portobellos and corn on the deck.
But the Big Deal was the Anniversary / Father's Day feast Kit planned
and executed (here's the working
menu) with the
invaluable help of
the sou-chef Rachael. It
began with "Where you started"
-- an "update" of burgers, fries and a
shake that looked, in the event, like this, and was actually a tiny wild boar & tamarind patty with chipotle ketchup, sweet potato fries in a custom Rachael-made fry
envelope, and a buttermilk
chocolate shake with nutmeg. A bit later, the next course ("Where you've been") invoked three
Italy (squash & cottage cheese ricotta with walnut cream sauce),
Germany (weisswurst in a
Riesling reduction) and Greece (spanikopita with a sun-dried tomato
sauce). Then it was "Where you are":
maple-Dijon glazed salmon, fiddlehead and mushroom
tartlet, and roasted garlic
mashed potoatoes with
raspberry drizzle (in the shape of a maple leaf, natch). On to dessert:
"What's Next?" -- which
was a raspberry coulis question mark
with fresh fruit, a bit of marzipan and some chocolate truffley things Rachael whipped
up. And, of course, cheese
and fruit. Happy Father's Day? Happy 45th Anniversary? Natch.45th?
Isn't that the dinner anniversary?
