Mrs. P went all out for Christmas eve! I couldn’t have asked for a better Christmas present
We started out with an outstanding kabocha squash salad inspired by Bloom in Verona, NJ. Mrs. P pureed kabocha squash, roasted Fuji apples, ginger, maple syrup, heavy cream, and butter in the blender. It was topped with homemade candied pecans and laid on top of endives and radicchio, which was the perfect vehicle for scooping up the squash. Next was BBQ shrimp inspired by Mr. B’s in New Orleans. The delicious sauce was scooped up with a crispy 3 seeded baguette. The piece de resistance was a decadent lobster thermidor We had some excellent wine and port. For dessert (not pictured) Mrs. P made a brownie stuffed with peanut butter ganache and topped with chocolate ganache, as well as homemade coffee ice cream with chocolate covered espresso beans.
