Hawaiian Dinner

Luau if you will.

Dinner at Gemma's brother's house. Our sister in law is from Hawaii's Big Island and her mother has been visiting and cooking up a storm.

Here's an image from our iPhone-sorry the images are so grainy. Our iPhones don't do so well in low light situations.

From the left:

Apple and fennel salad
Chinese poached chicken
Brown rice
Ginger scallion sauce to accompany the poached chicken
Mom's potato salad-nice and eggy (just like we like it)
Bok choy braised in chicken stock
Roast duck
Hawaiian braised spare ribs
Yi mein with roast pork and peas

Ono=yummy!

Leftovers

Last night we, well really Murray, cooked a multi-course dinner for some very generous contributors to our nephew and niece's school. He was actually auctioned off for $1350 (he spent a few days convinced that if he was worth that much in the kitchen for one night, he should be worth a lot more in other rooms of our home as well) and all of the funds went to the Parkmead Elementary School in Alamo, California, a very worthy cause.

So here's the menu for last night's dinner for twelve:


Appetizers



Bruschetta




Roasted Red Peppers on Baguette Croutons




Achiote Chicken Skewers with Mango Pineapple Salsa




Salumi, Prosciutto, Sopressata and Olives



Salad



Caesar Salad



Entree



Lobster Agnolotti with Lobster and Chervil Cream




Tuna Nicoise with Roasted Baby Beets and


Rosemary Olive Oil Poached Potatoes




Beef Tenderloin with Roasted Wild Mushrooms and Bernaise




Mashed Potatoes, Garlic Roasted Potatoes,


Roasted Cauliflower, Grilled Asparagus



Cheese



Gorgonzola, Humboldt Fog, Mount Tam, Red Hawk,


Parmagiano Reggiano, Taleggio




Fruit and Organic Honey Comb



Dessert



Chocolate Cake with Cocoa Buttercream Frosting, Organic Raspberry Coulis




Tiramisu



With the exception of the olives, baguettes, salumi and cheese Murray made everything from scratch, even the pasta for the agnolotti.

The images below show Gemma helping out with the bruschetta, the appetizer table, and the evening's menu.

Needless to say, tonight we had leftovers. Gemma ain't complainin'.

Roast Chicken and Mashed Potatoes

Two nights ago we had dinner at our friends' home to celebrate our other friend's visit from Tennessee. Murray cooked. It usually works out that way.

Caesar salad, parmesan toast, roast chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy, rice, and corn.

Gemma likes wings!

Did Anyone Else Have . . .

corned beef and cabbage on Saint Patrick's Day?

Corned beef and cabbage with potatoes, turnips and carrots. Served over rice, of course!

OK Yhottys, You definitely intimidate us with your OTT gourmet meals, but you definitely lack in the photographic department, i.e. iPhone photo's. There is a definite imbalance in Gemma's world of expert culinary preparation & presentation -vs- Murray's photographic attempt at capturing the crowning achievements with grainy iPhone photos. Murry you seriously need to invest in an appropriate camera to capture all of Gemma's culinary achievements! LOL! Seriously I really enjoy and envy all you two do! Keep em coming!

Tonight, gourmet pizza!!! woo hoo!
