When entertaining at home, one must always consider the dramatic ending to a fine meal.
A Forte, if you will.
An appropriate Encore. (I love Opera. Can you tell?).
Having grilled steak with roasted asparagus and baked potatoes? Finish with a slice of cake.
Enjoying a classic pasta primavera with a green mixed arugula salad tossed in a fresh raspberry vinaigrette? Mixed berries on warm shortbread with a flourish of creme fraiche will do.
Serving Lobster Newburg with pearl onions and English peas? Lemon mousse is a nice crescendo.
Of course there is the wine. Always the wine– poured in ‘Flights’, or a tasting order, to magnify the unique and subtle flavors of the food.
To enhance them.
And now, the famous chocolatier Godiva, has created the very same ‘Flight’, of chocolates.
Like I did the other night…
No second act was necessary.
