Here’s a behind the scenes look of the “One Night in Paris”dinner party.
I’ll admit I just finished watching the show The Bear and it made me miss the fine dining industry. So, I wanted to do a classic French menu and give guests the most Michelin starred experience I could.
The menu was also an ode to my time spent in Paris some 10 years ago. Since finishing training in France, I spent more time cooking Italian and Mediterranean food over the years. But for this night, I wanted to take it back to the basics.
A bit more preparation goes into a French menu. It’s more technical but it’s satisfying when executed well. It took more time and preparation but we did it!
Thanks again to @groundsandcrumbs for helping with this more intensive menu. It was a success 🥳
