My Boss Steve and his lovely wife Beth hosted a party this past Saturday night themed: Celebrity chefs and Blind Wine Tasting. They picked 4 of us from the office to make whatever we wanted as a main course to feed 3 judges and guests. The blind wine tasting involved 4 bottles of excellent wine, labels covered, and samplings of each to come down to a vote for which one was the best.
Myself, Tamara, Mark and Pete were the 4 celebrity chefs. Judges were Bill, Jack and Michelle. All the meals were delicious and it was unanimous that it was a four-way tie!
Obviously you all know what I made, Tamara made a spicy jerk pork, Mark made sheared beef and arugula with creamy risotto, and Pete made manicotti with thin sliced veal and lemon sauce. ummm YUMMMMMMM!!!
Steve and Beth made a TON of appetizers one of which was crunchy shrimp mini omelets (per say) It was a 2-biter finger food that if no one was around I think we could have scarfed the whole thing in one bite!
The whole night was tremendous and everyone went home with happy bellys and satisfied livers! Thank you Thompsons!!
