I had a lovely evening yesterday over at afriends of minne for dinner. The deal is I bring the steaks and cocktail ingredients and they look after everything else.
I made ciaproskas for everyone and some craft beer/pale ale was also served. I had a taste of the craft beer and surprisingly I liked it. It was much lighter then I thought it would be and it had an unusual grapefruit after flavour which was very nice. As I said that surprised me!
If you would like to try a Ciaproska, here is my recipe/instructions for making them.
My wonderful host is an incredible chef and for starter made scallops on a cauliflower puree with celery oil and pancetta all served on a brown bread crumb.
With the main we had a lovely bottle of Chateauneuf du-Pape which is a really great wine, the hosts truly spoiled us.
Main was steak and fondant potato with a red wine sauce.
Dessert was pecan pie.
As always I had a great night with my friends.
