The blackcap and raspberry tart was stunning. I love those little berries. I met a personal chef at a bar in Austin; he asked me how he could get my job. When I asked what he thought I did I got a good belly laugh -- he thought I reviewed cocktail bars. I told him what I really do and he was disappointed. I don't think he liked the family he cooked for, or at least that was the impression I got, and as you say, that's key. The kitchen does look beautiful. But my real question is, who handles the wine? Food like that deserves good pairings.

Well, if Downton Abbey is and indication, the butler does the wine pairing and is in charge of the cellar.

Tonight’s requested dinner menu includes salad, sushi, shrimp, sole, Branzino, roasted quail with truffles, a ribeye steak, 5 different side dishes, a mixed berry cobbler and brownies with mint ganache. It’s fucking ridiculous and I deserve a medal of domestic kitchen honor.

I'm curious why you're making so much of everything? I assume its because the recipes are intended for that amount?

because I am cooking for a large group of secondary psychopaths
Reminds me of the customers in a pub bistro I worked at.

Cream of corn soup with saffron; peach salad with prosciutto, a pecorino aged in chamomile, and lots of herbs from the garden -- basil, anise hyssop, lemon balm, bee balm and such. The peaches, which are of course at their peak now, with the herbs, cheese and prosciutto was really something. The corn has not been stunning this year and so neither was the soup.

The wine was Cuvee Des Seigneurs de Ribeaupierre, because I bought a half case for a song a few years ago. It was my last bottle and now I has a sad.
