Now don’t get me wrong, I like going out to restaurants as much as the next person, but when you have a live in Chef sometimes it just doesn’t make any sense to go out!!
The Chef and I were celebrating our anniversary this weekend so he was nice enough to “whip me up” a little something for my dinner!!
We started with an appetizer of beet and goat cheese pin wheel terrine with basil infused oil.
Colourful and light.
Then a lovely salad of arugula with a beautiful refreshing oil and lemon dressing and shaves of Parmesan cheese.
For the main course we had beef and asparagus rouladen topped with gorgonzola cheese, accompanied by pured roasted celeriac topped with Boursin cheese and roasted root vegetables with topped with Blue cheese.
Needless to say, with all the flavours and textures going on there, it only seemed appropriate to have a nice simple dessert.
Strawberries macerated in sugar and balsamic vinegar with Greek yogurt, with a sprig of mint and a shard of dark chocolate!
Good time had by all!
