New Year’s Eve Dinner

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)

Roasted Shiitakes with Garlic

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:

The steak was awesome, along with the red wine, but I was too busy enjoying it to photo the results.  We can try again next time.

Happy New Year!!!

    I was taken away with the presentation of this special collection of delights for the palate and soul. Each dish was full of interesting blends of taste and at the same time, we got to see how they were made as the evening went on. What a treat. I’m glad that you had a menu because it would be hard to describe this to someone without it – so many good things. Thank you Laura, Michael, Barbara, and Abbott for your kind, thoughtful, and fun company.
