In spite of food fads, fitness programs, and health concerns, we must never lose sight of a beautifully conceived meal. –Julia Child
This past Halloween we were fortunate enough to skip the tricks and we were treated to a spectacular dinner by one of our most generous friends. Our table included an overwhelming array of colors and taste sensations! Not to mention the endless flow of wine! At this point I am pretty certain that it is more fun to be an adult during Halloween than a child.
It seemed as though we ordered one or two of everything on the menu. Here is what I remember: Baby kale salad with pine nuts (I love anchovies so this was a hit for me), Prosciutto de Parma, two pizzas (if you are interested in one of the ones I ordered you will have to show the staff the pictures, I cannot remember their names), tons of other items, as well as several desserts. I loved the pumpkin gelato pie with candied pecans and rum raisin sauce, as well as the butterscotch budino. Don’t leave without ordering the butterscotch buino!
