Special guests warrant special dinners, and I decided to work from my Italian repertoire. One of my favourite cuisines, it lends itself to family style dishes with make-ahead preparation and no fuss so that the cook can enjoy the company instead of hovering over the stove.
I didn’t get a lot of finished product pictures for just that reason–I was enjoying the evening.
The full menu was:
Zuppa de Pesci (Seafood soup)
Albacore tuna loin
Risotto alla Milanese
And some store-bought rosemary foccacia bread, cannoli, and biscotti :).
Some other folks were busy in their kitchens too. My nephew “The Doctah” is entertaining his parents in Texas, and served up this Thai Red Curry with Grouper–such a fragrant dish, with complex heat, I’ll bet it was amazing.
And from Catherine, who made the best of being storm-bound in Nova Scotia with this Valentine-themed Devil’s food cake. I thought she should stick to Angel food cake, being a United Church minister and all, but there’s no arguing with how delicious this cake looks–dare I say sinfully delish?
What did YOU have for supper?
