|The evening’s main course: Curried chicken with caramelized tomatoes over quinoa polenta and a side kale salad.|
Not a huge sports fan but I like making major games an excuse to have people over for dinner. As preparation for our annual Superbowl dinner, we invited a few friends for drinks and eats to watch
the NFC Championship Game.
Having guests over is also a good time to practice table setting. Here I used the teak napkin holders I got to match our table, a bunch of daffodils and Riedel stemless wine glasses.
The first order of business was the homemade chicken liver pate crostini, pictured here with chopped roasted almonds and sage and drizzled with truffle oil.
A Malbec was the choice for the evening and alongside a sliced baguette we served
Cowgirl Creamery Mt. Tam Cheese, a crazy soft creamy cheese that is always a crowd pleaser.
The soup of the evening was the recently discovered Chickpea Tahini Soup.
We set the Curried Chicken with Caramelized Onions over some
quinoa polenta and a side of Kale Salad.
The daffodils bloomed by the end of the evening. I love being around for that.
Screaming sports fans, not so much
