There is no better way to ring out the old year and usher in the new one than with good friends, good food and good wine. And so it was, on December 31, 2010, with our New Year’s dinner with some close friends.
The menu was essentially lots of little dishes we love, as shown below:
Selected dishes included Sweet Onions with Curry and Parsley Coulis:
Sea Scallops Tiradito (based on the magic of Peruvian Recoto Hot Sauce)
Jade Dumplings with dipping sauce (think soy-ginger):
The Amazing Grilled Shrimp with Mango and Thai Chile (actually Marash Pepper – but don’t tell anyone; Michael and I also smuggled in a bit of green Thai Chiles)
Of course, we must have Barbara’s no-chocolate, Orange Cookies for Dessert:
Happy New Year!!!
