Last night, I had 5 friends over for a festive holiday themed supper. I think I prefer a dinner party of 8 to a dinner party of 6. Anyway here's what I learned:
- You can hide the ugly planter that poinsettias come in with a champagne chiller. And you should.
- Truffles don't last in the fridge.
- Truffles are not kosher.
- People love comfort food, but you need one high concept menu item for people to remember.
Recipes to follow. Soon!!!!!
