I was very fortunate to be invited to a friends for a dinner party, a non-celebration of an impending birthday. With 8 courses and 6 wines it was quite the evening! Everything ,with the exception of the sorbet and the candied violets, was expertly home made.
Featuring 2 dessert courses: Birthday Cake & Poached Pears
|Birthday Cake - Almond-Orange with Swiss Butter Cream|
By 11:30 we staggered home slightly tipsy and overly stuffed.
Happy Non-birthday...Birthday Boy!
