Here's a posting we should have put up a few months ago. Back in October, we were invited to cook for a dinner party in Agoura Hills, California. Check out the menu and photos from that dinner.
Cooing in their beautiful home, we were asked to come up with a 'steakhouse' menu for this evening. The menu was as follows:
Grilled Lamb Loin on Olive Crostini with Roasted Red Peppers
Sesame Crusted Seared Tuna on English Cucumber Chip with Wasabi Crème
Fresh Basil Pesto Crostini with Imported Mozzarella & Cherry Tomatoes
Smoked Salmon Endive Spears with Croutons and a Dill Crème Fraîche
Here are some pictures we captured from the appetizers that night:
A seafood tower which consisted of jumbo shrimp and Alaskan king crab legs. These were presented at the table with smoking dry ice. This was a big success and delicious with the different dipping sauces.
The Classic Steakhouse Iceberg Wedge with Point Reyes Station Blue Cheese, Crisp
Bacon & Onion Strings
The main course was served next. The guests had a choice of entree- Fresh Halibut Filet with a pesto sauce or Grilled Filet Mignon. These were served with Roasted Garlic & Shallot Mashed Potatoes,
Sauteed Mushrooms with Shallot and White Wine and Sauteed Asparagus spears with garlic and shallots.
