no-repeat gourmet night

Being a foodie household, we have a few foodie friends. And when the foodie friends get together, you can bet we eat well.


A few years ago, friends invited us to their summer dinner party. That tradition morphed into a semi-annual Gourmet Night. We usually pick a date and theme (last Fall it was “Tapas”), delegate the courses (appetizers, entrée, desserts, sides, etc.), then eat ourselves silly. This year, we came up with No-Repeat Gourmet Night. Translation: make something you’ve never made before. And instead of running screaming from the unknown, these dear friends dove head first into their projects. Here’s the menu:





Entrée and Sides




That last photo is a real teaser, isn’t it? My darling daughter made that (I helped with the glaze). Stay tuned for a cheesecake post in the near future.

  1. Your “new baby” obviously has a talented Mama. The chocolate cheesecake photo is amazing – reflections of the blackberries in the glossy frosting and the ruby sauce oozing over onto the cake plate – WOW!
