Month of May Dinner Party

Saturday nights dinner party for 26 people in a home in Maroubra was a great success with positive feedback from fans on our Facebook page.
A dinner party for a newly married couple that we had catered their wedding. They had some left over wine from their wedding and wanted to catch up with friends in a relaxed environment.The evening started with 2 Complimentry Canape's

Freshly baked bread rolls

The Menu

Wild Mushroom Risotto with crisp pancetta and  truffle oil
The entree that followed was a wild mushroom risotto with crisp pancetta and truffle oil.We were very generous with the mushrooms I would say it was half risotto half wild mushroom.The pancetta was crisp and salty the way it should be and garnished with shavings of parmesan.

Herb Crusted Lamb Rack on Caponata w/ Rosemary jus.

The main course to follow was Herb crusted lamb rack on caponata with a rosemary jus.The herb crust was made with baked olive bread crumbs , bread made by sassy chef , it was blended with flat leaf parsley.It was held in place on the lamb rack with a mix of honey and Dijon.
The caponata was made in true Italian style. A mix of confit garlic dice of capsicum , red onion , eggplant and tomato sautéed with capers anchovies and olive oil. Just before serving we shredded basil leaf and tossed it through.As for the rosemary jus I can not give all the secrets away except to say it started with a fine veal/beef stock and reduced away with some hidden ingredients along the way.

Panfried Halloumi Cheese w/ stuffed zucchini flowers
 The vegetarian option of panfried Haloumi cheese that is garnished with stuffedzucchini flowers and sits on a bed of spinach with olive tapenade.

Finally the dessert a steamed chocolate pudding with chocolate ganache encasing its light texture. It was placed on top of a warm white chocolate anglaise and finished with a biscotti and dressed with pistachio nut fairy floss.
The dessert was a hit and definitely a sugar hit that swung the dinner party into motion.with the help of the lovely Danielle we had no trouble in delivering the meals as requested. A great way to catch up with friends in a relaxed environment.Make sure you visit our website to see the next special for 3 course dinners coming to warm your belly in June .
