Birthday dinners

by | Mar 16, 2008 | Food

Last weekend I had my 44th birthday, this week it’s my wifes turn, actually hers is tomorrow. Since we will both be working I seem to be the cook on hand to fill the niche for making the munchies! As I had my hands full last weekend I didn’t even snap a picture, guests were too nice and well the food was first class if I don’t say so myself!

Menu was:


Stuffed quails basted in there pan juices and balsamic on mache salad

Grilled wild striped bass from Virginia on upland cress with roasted fingerling potatoes mushroom jus and mustard vinaigrette


Yogurt, lemon olive oil cake with whipped cream and berries

    Sourdough breads and assorted cheeses


Sauvignon blanc from New Zealand Culley from Marlborough

2006 Alicante Vin de Pays d’Oc, Domaine Fontareche

then this evening I started snapping away at all my food, but managed to delete most of the files except the main course which was a Roasted curried King Salmon with a cucumber, and citrus salsa on sauted spinach with what else fingerling potatoes and a really nice Txakoli from the Basque country! Oh well, it’s hard to keep focus while cooking, eating and clean up, a mans job is never done!
