This morning I wrote a bunch of concepts on poster paper on the wall in my kitchen. This is my first opportunity to see how they might flow within a meal, and how the flavors might transfer. As is typical, I am heavy on desserts, but my food is not "savory" and "sweet," but rather logically irrational. I am very happy with my draft entrees - two locally sourced, very fresh meats.
On a related note, one difficulty for me is keeping the secrets, but sharing enough info to get technical support. I would love to post the whole menu and have folks pick it apart, but what fun would that be!? Tyler really wants to know what's planned, and I want him to know just enough so that he can enjoy the flavor surprises that I want him (and everyone else) to experience.
I'm still working on a venue for this meal...just as difficult as picking a menu!
