sunday supper club: xmas eve

January 24, 2012 § Leave a comment

Cooking for family can be difficult. Everyone is happy to eat together, but nobody is shy about the dishes that they don’t like or that simply didn’t work.

For my dad, the octopus seemed a bit bland.

OCTOPUS. lime, serrano, fennel, black olive, orange

For my mom, the roasted parsnip agnolotti filling was too creamy.

PARSNIP AGNOLOTTI. brown butter, sage, beet-balsamic reduction

For my sister’s boyfriend, there were too many almonds in the salad.

WINTER KALE SALAD. radish, kohlrabi, apple, buttermilk dressing

For my sister, not enough duck fat was trimmed out of the confited legs.


For my brother, the cassoulet beans were a bit overdone.

CASSOULET. duck confit, herb sausage, pork belly, tired looking conrad.

And they all were right. This is how I stay honest and get better. Thanks guys.

Nobody had anything to say about the chocolate berry tart. Surprise, surprise.

merry christmas!
