Culinary Delight

Last night, Julie and Samy invited girls only to their house for a special dinner.  It was a dinner to thank some of Mom’s special friends for giving her so much support when Gram passed away.  It turned out to be spectacular.  I’ll get right to the pictures….

Raw scallop with grapefruit and ginger crackling.  Sprinkled with sea salt.

Seared scallop with red pepper sauce (for those who didn’t eat raw).

Red pepper with black olives, swiss and sour cream (for those who didn’t eat shellfish).

Potato leek soup with black pepper Crème fraîche and olive oil drizzle.

My personal favorite…
Potato pancake topped with mushrooms, spinach, dill and cipollini onions.

Braised short ribs with parsnip celery puree.

Buttermilk panna cotta with blood oranges and raspberry sorbet.

To finish this beautiful meal, Julie made authentic Moroccan Mint Tea in this gorgeous tea pot.

It was a dinner to remember.  Thank you Samy and Ryan (a chef friend that helped) and Julie.

Samy’s Grandma passed away yesterday and our hearts go out to Samy and his family.  ((hugs))
