Entertainment is a part of enjoying your life !! You go out looking for it you visit friends and also invite to your residence !! The last part requires some thinking as your the host ... And for me as a chef it's about creating a experience about entertaining your friends !! That they leave with a full stomach and great memory of the evening
Plan ahead ... Have a balanced fridge which will help you creat that experience you want !!! Come on do it right ... You don't have to find that excuse your not a master chef blablabla !! And nuts and chips is all you can handle .
My menu for the evening was to have a yummy effect on my guests;
-Artichoke spinach creamy garlic cheese dip with freshly baked focaccia
-Italian sausage eggplant mushroom tomate red wine stew with mozzarella toasted croutons
-smoked sausage leeks potatoe
-Tomatoes cheese basil and balsamic vinaigrette
-roasted farm raised chicken with forest mushroom sauce
-slow cooked Aged Beef rib
- gratin potatoes
-Apricot banana coconut rum flavored pie
Local white wine to start of evening and a good bottle of Burgundy wine to continue and not to forget some good swiss chocolates to end evening ...
Great food !!! Looking forward to invite again soon ...
