Puff Pastry, Parmigiano, fresh Tomato,
Magnolia petals, Ricotta Salata
Recently a friend and I got together for a dinner, prepared by me. Here is the menu:
Roasted Quail wrapped in Prosciutto and Grape Leaves
with Port Sauce and Grapes and Cherries
Couscous with a confetti of vegetables
(zucchini, carrots, yellow bell pepper, red onion)
Roasted Whole Carrots with Sumac and Zatar
Tarte Tatin with Crème Fraîche
Does that sound like a meal you would enjoy?
Here are a few photographs. The Tarte Tatin got sliced before the photo happened.
I don't have set menus. Each menu, each dinner, lunch, party is an individual and custom menu. I went through my files today and pulled out about 40 or so menus from the past. They are in no particular order. I can't even remember some of these parties...but there's proof that they happened. Some people have more adventurous tastes than others and I like to create original dishes. Some have bigger appetites and the meals have to be more extensive. Here are about thirty-six or so scanned menus from my files. Sorry if some are difficult to read. I had to scan them as photos rather than pdf's so I could upload them here. Have fun.
