OK, this is an incredibly photo heavy post. Perhaps the most photo heavy post I’ve ever had, so let me get the business out of the way before I put you to sleep with all of my photos.
- Jumbo shrimp cocktail with Lemon and Cocktail Sauce
- Warm Brie and Cranberry “Popovers” (pictured above)
- crab Cakes with Lemon Caper Remoulade
- Caramelized Onion and Gorgonzola Tart with Fresh Rosemary (I think these were my fav!)
- Charred loin of Lamb on a Crisp Potato Pancake with Apple-Rosemary Chutney (amazing!)
- Grilled Tuna “Nicoise” on a Crisp Cucumber with Haricot Vert, Red Potatoes, Sprouts and Lemon Vinaigrette
The Second course was a Potatoe-Leek Veloute served tableside with…
…petite fresh peas, bacon and onions, served in my Grandmom Lillian’s Rosenthal creamed soups.
The Main Course was a sight to behold, served on my new to me Limoges dinner plates via Ebay (Cherry Kay graciously held my hand – virtually – throughout the entire purchase).
We had Grilled Filet Mignon with a Bearnaise Sauce, Local Asparagus, and…
…a twice baked potato with a tattooed potato chip. Absolutely, without a doubt, the most amazing potatoes I have ever tasted.
Petite Baguettes were served with Freshly Whipped Butter Rosettes (sorry I didn’t get a photo of those, but I was trying to enjoy the party itself too!)
Champagne and wine flowed throughout the evening in my Waterford Araglin wedding crystal.
Not wanting a cake, I clustered these gorgeous lemon cupcakes with a lemon filling.
And the final course was my favorite Crème Brulee, served in my antique Limoges ramekins, accompanied by Fresh Berries and…
…14 karat Chocolate Truffles (served on a Limoges luncheon plate – too much dessert for a cake plate! LOL!).
The flavors of dessert were enhanced by a Pink Champagne served in a Villeroy and Boch flute.
To say the least, it was a dream come true!
