A sit down 7 course meal for the ‘Come Home Chef’.
A sit down 7 course meal, or even better, a 10 course meal is like preparing for an impromptu single man’s play. Because cooking for me is like painting, without a compilation clearly outlined in my mind, I merely pick up a paint brush and paint. Let my body movements guide me. Cooking, isn’t much different. Except its a series of beautiful moments(past & present)and experiences stitched together which bring forth some of my best cooking in its true essence. Unadulterated art, when truly inspired flavours come together as elements, which dance together before me, as I start cooking. Especially the elaborate course dinners, I love feeding people. When each course is laid, I love to be right there, and engage my audience with tales of what inspired the food on their plates and my imagination to produce the same. Its like a non fiction play!
This Christmas, I cooked an elaborate 9 course vegetarian meal for a friend, Abhinav, at his beautiful terrace garden.
Here’s the menu:
Fresh Halloumi bread & green hummus (served with home made onion jam)
Roasted asparagus & sage soup
Aubergine caprese with Thai basil pesto
Sun kissed vegetables & horseradish
Southern Pan Asian warm salad
handmade forest mushroom torillini with porcini cream
Beetroot cheesecake served with white chocolate sponge
Orange chocolate truffles
Does it sound tasty and beautiful? Well, you can have it your way, for your occasion too! A wonderful sit down course meal. We can make it as glamorous as you like. All you need to do, is connect with me, and leave the rest to me.
Also, let me leave you with some more info on a typical French Course Meal.
