My Valentine's Day Dinner

Img_3983Because my sweetie cooks for a living, I thought it would be nice to make him dinner for V-day. Here's what I made:

~ Prime, dry-aged New York strip, rare, with a rosemary-scented port, shallot and dried cherry sauce.

~ Crème fraîche mashed potatoes with a tiny bit of celeriac thrown in for good measure.

~ Vermont Butter & Cheese crottina

Img_3980 ~ We were too full to eat it, but a mesclun salad with toasted Marcona almonds, apples, avocado, Bayley Hazen blue cheese and a sherry vinaigrette. That's the salad pre-apples and avocado.

~ Mirabelles Napoleans and Eclairs for dessert

My mashed potatoes were a little lumpy, but the steak came out just as I hoped, and everything tasted really good. I'll post the port sauce recipe tomorrow.

What did you eat for Valentine's Day?

One order of bland slop & one order of overly cloying chunks from Asian Bistro. We were saving ourselves for the chocolate dinner at Restaurant Phoebe on March 5 & had never been to Asian Bistro before.


I'm sorry, Cat! I saw your comment on 7 Nights about the meal.

I'll be seeing you at Phoebe, which I'm guessing will more than make up for it! I spoke with Chef Millon the other day about the menu, and I'm super excited about it.
