I had quite a weekend, in terms of cooking, last weekend. I made a few treats for a dear friend’s bridal shower, and then hosted a dinner party for some old friends.
Let’s tackle the dinner party first. You have to love dinner parties. Either throwing one or attending one. What’s more ubiquitous across cultures than sharing a meal in the home?
My typical dinner party starts with an appetizer, main entree of some sort of meaty dish, with a few sides and then dessert. This time around, I broke my own rule. One friend happened to love my stewed oxtail, another friend loves duck. Also, I still had some of the lovely tuna Dave caught vacuum sealed and frozen, I decided to do an air, land and sea themed dinner.
