On Valentine’s Day, I had the extreme pleasure of cooking a romantic, fun menu for 5 lovely couples. The dinner party was hosted by Ginger and Jared Andresen in Broken Arrow. I met the Andresen’s on New Year’s Eve, when mutual friends, Steve and Shellye Jaggers had recommended my services for their dinner party that evening.
A few weeks prior to Valentine’s Day, my friend and helper, Chef Bill Harris (who happens to be a mutual friend of the BOOYAHS also) and I sat down to create a “themed” menu. Being that it was Valentine’s Day, we wanted the menu to include bright colors and include traditional reds and pinks. A bottle of wine and a few “tweeks” and we were ready to impress. The menu was approved by the hosts and three meat choices were offered for the guests..
Hearts began to flutter from the taste of Salmon Mousse served with homemade, heart-shaped Lemon and Dill Crackers. Salmon Mousse is a fan favorite.
Their mouths began to water for what I call a “BLT” tart. A flaky pastry filled with Tomato Mousse and Bacon Jam topped with a slice of fresh grape tomato and a fried Basil leaf. I do believe that was a highlight of the evening and I quickly made this my new signature appetizer.
As with any good date, things can get a little “hot” and the Roasted Red Pepper Soup, served beside Ginger Carrot Soup certainly turned up the heat. The soup was garnished with a sour cream heart and fresh chopped parsley. Steamy Garlic and Cheddar Focaccia and hot buns of Olive Oil and Rosemary went well with this starter.
Next was the main course. Some chose the sweet, juicy Cornish Game Hen covered in a Spiced Dried Cherry Sauce. Others chose Grilled Swordfish with a Caribbean Chutney, while some went for it all and had Rack of Lamb with Blood Orange Glaze. Each were served with Potatoes au Gratin made with thinly sliced potatoes, gooey Gruyere Cheese and sweet cream and garnished with fresh parsley. Beside that was roasted sweet potato, sauteed broccolini, red bell peppers, red onion and sliced asparagus.
When they didn’t think they could take any more, a classic Cheesecake served with sticky chocolate sauce and hot raspberry syrup topped with homemade whipped cream ended the night on a good note.
As always, I think everyone had a good time and really enjoyed the meal. I can’t wait to do it again. Hope the rest of you had a good Valentine’s Day as well.
