Easter Dinner

1) calamari and green bean salad

Blee kindly invited us to a Rob Feenie-inspired Easter Dinner at her condo on Sunday evening that was superb. It included a starter of grilled spicy calamari and green bean salad, a main of heavenly Veal Neptune and a banana cream pie dessert.

It was uber-fabulous and, we joked, was brought to us by the wonderful trio of butter, cream and eggs. Nothing like French cuisine!

2 & 3) pearl onions and shimeji mushrooms getting reduced with sherry vinegar, butter and Peking duck stock (home made by Blee herself I might add)

4) Blee prepares the dressing for the potatoes, made yummy by the addition of nuoc cham, while G works on the ragout of mushrooms and onions; 5) green beans and Peking duck stock

6) OMG!

While G and Blee prepared, I solved Blee’s Roger’s digital cable challenges and entertained the cooking duo with my silliness.

7 & 8) how about them knockers!

9) Blee’s take set for dinner; 10) the milk fed veal tenderloin as it exits the oven

Veal Neptune is a decadent mixture of oven roasted veal, served with a ragout of mushrooms and topped with a crab hollandaise sauce with more butter in it that I care to recount for the sake of my arterties.

11) Blee works the bain marie to prepare the hollandaise; 12) G slowly pours in the clarified butter

13) the result is this, Veal Neptune … truly out of this world favour and depth

14) worth a second look I think

    Oh that looks amazing. I agree with Sheldon: the mushrooms alone would have made my meal.
