so i cooked dinner on tuesday for vic's very belated birthday. it was a five people sit-down affair with of cos, lots of wine and drinks. as everyone expected, dinner was delayed. it was served at 9pm instead of the appointed time, which was supposed to be 8pm. as always, i'm meticulous and fastidious when it comes to the chopping, dicing and the food styling even in my haste. the menu of the day was:
- crab and grapefruit appetiser
- mixed salad with balsamic dressing
- crostini/bread with thai lemongrass pate
main course -
- panfried salmon with green apple salsa, portobello mushroom balsamico, asparagus and wasabi mash
needless to say, we all ended up satiated to the point of food coma. and we washed it all down with lots of booze, yippee!
