The 4-course dinner for my dad

Hello there! As promised, here are some pictures of the menu announced last week!

First, we had that self-made raviolo with pre-rolled pasta dough. I was a little lazy, to be honest. I wanted to make the dough by myself at first but then I knew it would save a lot of time buying some high-end ready dough. Anyway, the stuffing is inspired from Alinea’s Black Truffle Explosion. The trick here is to make a truffle stock and reduce it with butter, then put in some gelatin and let it set. Then, later on when cooking the pasta, the solid will warm up and liquefy but it will stay enclosed in the raviolo. Once you eat this little treasure, the dough plops and the liquid spreads in your mouth.

The rest is trivial. A slice of black truffle, some wilted spinach and a fine chip of pecorino.

After that, something you have seen before: Potato, chicken rillettes and pea puree, nothing spectacular but always nice to eat because of the curious shape of the potato and the tasty rillettes.

I plan to post a recipe in the next few weeks so you can enjoy it too.

To continue the delicious trip through French meals, let’s take a look at the main course.

Steamed rose fish, yellow bell pepper mousse, tomato chutney, grilled eggplant, marinated zucchini and herb butter accompany a traditional ratatouille.

Finally, two of my failure-free desserts, which will also get a dedicated post some time soon. Lemon ice cream, fudgy chocolate brownie, some chocolate crumble, lemon gel, meringues and a white chocolate candy I had left.
