Your Intimate Dining 2

I did another "Your Intimate Dining" gig over the weekend.  This was a Crepe affair. Savory crepe manicotti were stuffed with fennel sausage, spinach and mixed with ricotta and parmesan cheese and a cheesy savory bechamel.  Topped with homemade marinara sauce.

For dessert, we made crepes with sweetened mascarpone and baby chocolate chips topped with a cherry and meyer lemon compote.  The 'we' part was having the guests participate in the dessert crepe making.  Much laughter and well made crepes resulted in a great time for the guests, myself and Chris.  (my most capable assistant)

Preceding the dinner was a Caprese appetizer with a Smoked Salmon Bruschetta.

Many thanks to my hosts, Chuck and Toddy, and their very fun guests.

I love your style Chef Tom. And I like that you convinced everyone to cook their own dessert. Brilliant. Do you have a fence to paint too? :o) Sounds like a great night.
