    Hope nobody minds, I'm interested in a place to post my dinner menus.

    I make a dinner every week on Wednesday for 10-24 thirty-somethings, Happy to have others jump in and participate with either comments or your own menus

    I often edit them as I go, if it seems wrong to you send me a pm or publicly castigate me for misuse of the forum!

    Rick

    I think the “menu” idea is a great one and an excellent extension to the basic idea of this forum. Just my idea but I’m looking for a pencil to write this menu down.

    This one changed so much, I'm not even gonna edit it. I'll probably come back to the brisket dinner again soon.

    Anyway, Dinner for seven, Naomi's return

    Apps
    Pickled Daikon
    Muhamarra on Ciabatti

    First Course
    Risotto with Borlotti and Mushrooms. Damn fine dish, made it with leftover hot pot broth

    Vegetables
    Tofu, Leek and Kale
    Roast Baby Artichokes

    Main Course
    Roast Sea Bass. Got a real nice specimen, 3.5 lbs dressed, such a sweet fish. Did it on the bone, we got every piece of meat off that fish

    Dessert
    Walnuts drizzled with honey and dried banana chips

    *DISCLAIMER not a chef or a full menu*

    for VDAY:
    baby broccoli Sauteed with butter and garlic
    2" this porterhouse reverse sear method to med rare. i was lucky enough to get it pretty even med across the whole cut. normally i would have gone for a rib eye but the girlfriend loves filets so i thought this would be a good compromise.
    Yukon gold potatoes sliced and cooked with a ranch seasoning packet/butter/milk/frash grated parmesan. i know this sounds Midwestern-trashy but its actually fantastic. and i hate ranch dressing.

    edit: and desert, this local italian place makes this "Italian hangover cake" pound cake with copious amounts of booze in it. it was amazing. and made for a great end for our date night.

    Anything with a lot of booze in the cake and a happy ending works for me!
