No fowl, no foul
Much depends on dinner. This one was vegetarian; fortunately, fish was allowed.
- fennel broth, parisian gnocchi ❧ onion shiitake focaccia
- seared scallops on a bed of asparagus purée
- cod and portobellos baked in poblano creme, tomatillo-chipotle salsa ❧ chess soufflé
- apple tart ❧ cherry jelly
The poblano crema was a lovely green and turned out to be less hot than I’d originally feared. It went nicely with the sweetness of the fish, and paired nicely with a chardonnay.
Some disaster befell the cherry jelly, which failed to gel. No idea what went wrong, but something went badly astray.
