Earlier in the month a friend and I had the pleasure of throwing a dinner party to celebrate our (almost shared) birthdays. We invited mutual friends to celebrate with us and it was a MOST special evening!
Silke and I spent a good two months planning this night. We have busy lives and 5.5 kids between us and we needed that long to make it happen! Once we decided on our five course menu, we did most of the food preparation ahead of time. The night of, these handsome husband helpers did all the last minute preparations, plating and serving on that evening.
It was a busy night for them in the kitchen… they worked hard and had fun doing it together.
H’orderves served were…
Baba ganoush on cucumber slices.
Quark with nuts on bread.
Bruschetta on toast.
Then we moved to the table…
… and enjoyed:
A most impressive salad plate.
Delicious pumpkin soup.
Chicken fricassee with puff pastry and garlic green beans.
And homemade tiramisu, chocolate and vanilla mousses and fresh strawberry sauce to finish it off.
It was very possibly the most beautiful meal I have ever eaten.
And it was a beautiful evening. One we will not forget for a long long time.
