My friend, Vlad, came over for a simple dinner and conversation. I did my best to keep it simple, and here are the three dishes I came up with tastes to match his personality: deep, honest and personal. The three dishes in order were:
- Artisan Lasagna with Hand-Made Noodles, Prime Rib, San Marzano Tomato and Buffalo Milk Mozzarella.
- Duck Confit Leg with Roasted Baby Potatoes in Stilton and Heavy Cream Sauce
- Rack of Lamb Lollipopped and Roasted with Umami Paste and a Side of Garlic Rapini
No need to explain dinner more than that. A good time was had by all in a world where good conversation is more rare than good lamb.
