Back By Popular Demand

And by popular we mean we (wife) like it…new menu auditions!

It started innocently enough with December’s Pate Party. Once we mastered that we thought, what other French recipe should we try? Thus the monthly contest: Just Like Top Chef But Not Really was born. January = quiche.

Important to note that upstate won Best Crust – so moist and flakey the ‘judges’ gushed. Wilsher had an excellent showing with two different quiches but alas Lee took first place with a lobster masterpiece. Unanimous vote. His secret ingredient? Duck fat. Damn it was good. FYI – creme fraiche makes for a flakey, tasty crust.

With all that sampling of savory, a dose of sweetness was in order and chocolate covered macaroons hit the spot. So yes, in addition to whiskey cake there is actually one other dessert I make.

Last Sunday in February is our next contest. Who’s in?

See you upstate!
