Across The Pond

This meal was inspired by the Pan Seared Walleye dish I came across at photographer/foodie Matt Wright’s blog Wrightfood. Matt is an amazing food photographer and a pretty darn good cook to boot. His site motivated me to try my own Bresoala as well… more on that later. The pictures for this meal are a little rough, due to I prepared about 95% of this meal the evening of. I learned a lot from this… Do prep work!!! I really bit off more than I could chew with this one, but it seamed to turn out tasty if not pretty. Most aspects of the meal came from Gordan Ramsey or Thomas Keller and I would recommend Keller’s Ad Hoc at home. Somehow I missed getting pics of the Roasted Butternut Squash Soup which was maybe the best looking dish. The Beef Wellington… well lets just say… it tasted good.

I emailed the menu to my best friend Johan and he brought wine to accompany the meal. Kudos to the Swede!!

So here is the meal….

    Thanks again for a great meal Harrison.
    The Butternut Squash Soup is what sticks out in my mind, however the whole meal was great. It was fun for us to watch the meal being prepared when there was little prep work done before hand. It was like a dinner and a show.
