Time for an update folks! Last week saw Danny and I testing a few recipes for the dinner over on Vashon Island.
The dinner menu is going to be the following:
Smoked Salmon, Tomato, and Horseradish Cream Napoleon
Charcuterie Plate: Head cheese, Game Pate, and Red Onion
Homemade Sausage, Piperade, and Roasted Potatoes
Chicken Leg Confit with Bacon-Dripping Lentils (pictured above)
Pork Belly Roulade with Mushroom Duxelle with Melted Leek Coulis
Lemon Chocolate Tart
Cost is $65 a person.
La Boucherie is offering 1/2 priced wine, or a $10 corking fee if you bring that special bottle.
Dinner date is this Thursday! (August 27th) Service starts at 7pm, directions here. Reservations required. My suggestion is to allow a couple of hours if traveling from Seattle to Vashon.
I just thought I would share a few more photos from the recipe test, which happened to be one of the best “food days” I have ever had. Cooking with Danny was utter joy. I haven’t had the luck of cooking with a professional chef before, especially one of Danny’s caliber.
WOW, just wow. The speed and efficiency is simply outstanding. 4 things on the go at once, and talking, laughing and joking around. Incredible to see.
The best news? There are still some seats available for this fun evening! Email me if would like more information, or to request a reservation. matt(at)mattikaarts.com - you are gonna have to copy/paste and swap out the (at) for @.. I really don’t want emails about dodgy bank accounts, or herbal enhancement pills.
So here are some photos from the recipe test! enjoy.
