This year I went a little crazy even for me. Today's pictorial post is a bit of the tasty tasty evidence of my insanity.
The dinner menu: Housemade Tofu Roast, 24hr Brined Clementine Glazed Turkey, Slow Roasted Tai Snapper w/ Wild Rice -Date Stuffing, Brioche-Sage-Cranberry Stuffing, Vegetarian & Turkey Gravy, Mashed Potatoes w/ Crispy Shallots, "Brown-N-Serve" Dinner Rolls, Cranberry Gelee
My cooking adventure began on the Saturday & Sunday before the big day, that vacuum sealer I got from Mike a couple years ago xmas really came in handy.
Garlic Sage Cashews, Honey Truffle Popcorn, Almond Butter & Cranberry-Cornmeal Cookies &
Housemade Tuna Belly Rillettes w/ Ankimo (Monkfish Liver, the foie gras of the sea) Butter.
Served w/ the brioche, microgreens and truffle oil
(not pictured: Allison's delicious apple pie
and my homemade vanilla ice-cream w/ cinammon-caramel swirl.)
It was indeed a day of gluttony, and unfortunately I didn't get pictures of everything I prepared but I think you (whoever you are) get the gist.
