I got an invitation for AW, it for tonight and I'm reading the invitation first time this morning. It looks like it was first sent out Friday afternoon before a three day weekend. I was not included then but got a forward from the same boss on Sunday. Is this the legendary planning capability of management?
Shrimp soup. For me this is very luxurious, shrimp are pretty expensive here but they were discounted today.
I even got a small bottle of cognac to go all out on flavouring the soup. Cognac has a million culinary uses so it's always good to have it at home.
Found some plume that was half price at the store since it was close to its best before date. Plume isn't that common here but I find it really delicious.
Made some roasted potatoes and carrots and just fried the plume with some salt and pepper. Made a sauce from sea buckthorn, creme fraiche, garlic, parsley, terragon, salt, and pepper.
I'm not great at plating things to look nice.
Had some ground elk meat so I made some patties and a pan sauce with cream. Served it with mashed potatoes, macerated lingon berries, and Swedish style pickled cucumbers.
Love eating food, looking at food, reading about food.
All about food, friends, cooking and community.
