    My wife who is 4.5 month pregnant have invited her old uni friends this Sunday. They are all been to France so I am thinking of creating a french feast for her.

    Current plan.
    Entree: not sure. ( I can make sous vide ribs and some sort of sauce.
    Main: I am thinking of doing rabbit in white wine. But no rabbit to be found anywhere apparently there is massive shortage in nsw
    Doing the same recipe with chicken

    Dessert: I made a good batch of creme burlee Last week. want to try soufflé but my trial run ended badly. May do both.

    Timelines.
    Friday night: put ribs in sous vide
    Saturday: clean house, shop for stuff. Make creme burlee
    Sunday 2 hours beforehand whip eggs keep wrapped in fridge. Do the chicken.

    Any ideas, tips or tricks let me know. I would like to make the night a success for my wife. ( at least as thank you for her tolerance of my knife addiction )

    I don't have much in the way of tips or tricks, but I know my wife at that point in her pregnancy was very cautious to make sure everything was cooked thoroughly, especially chicken and eggs. Just my two cents.

    Any thought of going to Italy with Panna Cotta vice Creme Brulee for desert? Won't have the sugar layer, can add seasonal fruit, and wimins will think it's healthier.

    You know Gerard Depardieu bitched one time about not being able to find a decent roasted chicken in the US that was worth a crap. That always stuck with me, so I pride myself in fixing a damn good roasted chicken seasoned properly. So instead of rabbit, go with chicken and nice Pinot Noir, you'll be find.
