Okay. Ready? Here we go, here is what you do.
Decorate the table with some mini flower arrangements and seashells.
and chop and cut and mix ingredients for a couple of hours.
Invite both husbands, and take your time to enjoy a lovely meal together.
Two small dishes as an appetizer …
Cooked shrimps on a little spinach and alfalfa salad.
and cucumber with crab in a ginger and chili dressing.
And then, as a first course, serve three refined little dishes with smoked salmon, tuna and scallops together on one plate.
Smoked salmon with apple and sour cream.
Tuna tartar, with lime and shallots and a parsley dressing
And a marinated scallop with walnut oil and oak lettuce . Plate up nicely and add a little pansy flower from your herb garden as a finishing touch .
There … enjoy.
Light some candles …
and serve the main dish.
A good piece of beef, caviar d’aubergines and potato confit served with a sun dried tomato mayonnaise.
A bavarois with lemon grass, red fruit of the season and a raspberry sauce for dessert. All of that home made of course.
Finish with coffee and an old Calvados as a nightcap …
Oh and don’t forget to take pictures!
This is my recipe for a successful gastronomic dinner party at home.
That’s what kept us busy all day yesterday.
