Prom Dinner 2011

Last month I agreed to cook a 7 course meal for 7 couples for Prom at the local High School. It was a fun experience and I hope that this kids enjoyed it. Each couple paid $50 to cover the costs of the food. The menu was as follows:

1. Honey and Goat Cheese Wafer
2. Carrot Raisin Bread
3. Torched Pears with Mascarpone and Proscuitto
4. Buttermilk Blue Cheese Wedge Salad
5. Orange Peel Sorbet
6. Filet Mignon with Mushroom Ragout, Parmesan Regiano Risotto with White Truffle Oil, Blanched Asparagus Spears
7. Chocolate Mousse with Pistachio and Cream

Below are pictures of the the couples that came, the table setup and the official menu. With Maddy starting 10th grade, who knows - it could be Maddy and friends here for dinner next year.
