An Amazing Dinner PartyPosted: June 25, 2012
so you know those nights where your surrounded by so much good food and good wine that you just eat and drink yourself silly
well that was last night for me but it was SO worth it
last summer my mom and I took a trip to France to attend a cooking school which I did a recap of here
some of the people who went on the trip with us including their families came over for dinner last night and we had an epic feast
the beautiful table my mom set up
the pretty water display which i should of drank more of..i was all about the wine last night 🙂
my beautiful Mommy the hostess with the mostess
we started out the meal with a cheese tray and a oyster bar
Nick the oyster man! he was shucking fresh oysters and topping them with a cocktail sauce and a really delicious cilantro sauce
he also was grilling the oysters which I had never tried before
this one was topped with a “casino butter” he made that had bacon and shallots in it. I honestly use to think I hated oysters but now I’m completely in love..i probably had about 10 different oysters they were all amazing
The main course was a seafood cioppino with lemon pasta
the cioppino had a mix of prawns, clams, cod, and crab
my plate..i went back for more crab. I could have this for dinner every day and be so content. the lemon pasta was an amazing pair to the seafood
And the dessert
omg the dessert
probably the best dessert I’ve ever had in my life and no I’m not exaggerating
A deconstructed s’more that was made with homemade graham crackers, homemade chocolate fudge sauce, and a toasted marshmellow semifredo
thank you Kathy for making this amazing dessert. I NEED to make this and get the recipe
and then share it with all of you because it was hands down the best dessert i’ve ever had. The marshmellow semifredo was like eating toasted marshmellow ice cream and it all pair perfectly with the not too sweet, kind of salty, graham cracker and decadent chocolate sauce
i want this for breakfast..too bad its pretty much all gone..except there are graham crackers left which I will be eating today
overall it was a wonderful evening with lots of good food and great company!
i’m not sure what I plan on doing today cause I don’t have work but maybe since its a rainy day I can convince my mom to go to the mall with me..:)
we shall see!
i hope everyone has a great day!
Question for ya!: Would you rather host a dinner party or attend one?
i love to do both but I love to cook for people so I’d say host one!
