For those who know me best, I do gourmet cooking as a hobby, but I’ve also been going through the worst time in my life the last eight months and still not through it. So it had been almost a year since I did gourmet style cooking. On July 3rd, I finally felt well enough to be creative and treated a young lady to a personal meal. We used a fake candle because it was like 110 degrees here in Phoenix, Arizona.
Stilton Cheese and Apricots; Antipasto; and Lavosh starter
Mediterranean Salad with baby greens, Danjou Pears, Black Grapes, Rosemary encrusted walnut halves, vine-ripened cherry tomatoes, and Rasberry sauce.
Fresh grilled Atlantic Salmon encrusted with Thyme, Dill and Sage lovingly presented on a bed of fresh four cheese Tortellini with Roasted Garlic Alfredo sauce.
Cupcake formed Cherry Cheesecakes with Truffle Chocolate Medallions, served with Hazelnut Piroulline, Maraschino cherries in glazee, strawberry sauce and a curl of Raspberry Cheesecake Gellato.
So, skipping my usual fair of hot dogs and hamburgers, I had to suffer through eating the leftovers… 🙂
Today, they are cooking for me…
