Brag Dinner by Chef Bill

The resident chef hasn’t prepared a multi-course feast in a while, so his fingers are itching and his brain is twitching to build a menu for our weekend guests.

Primo…a onion tart with goat cheese crumbled on top
Excellent for breakfast the next day…or lunch…or snack
Paired with a bottle “Farm Girl” from Smasne Cellars
Recipe courtesy of Paley’s Place

Secondi…Ricotta gnocchi with crab in a lovely lemon sauce
Refreshing and delicious, tastes like summer
Another delightful Paley’s recipe.

And the main course…
From the private recipe collection of the Chef
Pork loin on top of a pairing of sauces, red pepper and ancho chile, pile of grilled veggies
Paired with a bottle of the fabulous “Prisoner“, another wonderful creation of Orin Swift Cellars

And we finished with dessert
A final Paley-inspired option: Huckleberry Kuchen with Cassis-Huckleberry Sauce and Creme Fraiche
Huckleberries replaced by raspberries. Yum.
Paired with whatever sip we wanted to revisit from the previous courses

As you can see, Chef Bill likes to impress my friends. Maybe he is trying to make sure if I ever complain about him to them, they will not commiserate with me.
