We had a bit of a dinner party this past weekend, and I promised some of the attendees I would post the menu here. I hope to revisit some of these dishes with full recipes soon, but for now, just the menu. We decided to go French (mostly), in honor of Julia Child.
Mushroom Pate (liberally adapted from this recipe)
Chevre Chaud with Arugula and Mustard Vinaigrette
Vegetable Soup with Chervil and Creme Fraiche
Mixed Greens with Apple Roquefort dressing
Asparagus with Orange Mayonnaise
Flamiche and Stuffed Artichokes
OR Chicken Fricasee with Vinager and Tarragon
Lemon Tart (recipe here)
Bread Pudding with Cranberries and Chocolate Sauce
This was our biggest dinner party yet, at 16 attendees (although one was a baby). Next time, maybe we'll cook a little less.
