Birthday Menu (January 12, 2008)


"World-famous" Caesar Salad
house-made foccacia croutons, grated Parmiggiano-Reggiano

Flank Steak Salad
basil-marinated bocconcini, campari tomatoes, baby spinach, balsamic vinaigrette

Peri-peri Chicken Wings

Peri-peri sauce
This is so good! You can put it on anything! =D

Prawns with Cumin Butter


Roast Salmon with Almonds

Braised Chicken with Mushrooms & Cranberries
Not the greatest-looking dish, but very tasty.
(I guess braised items served in the braising liquid is never pretty.)

Cranberry sauce (for mushroom-braised chicken)

"Yogurt Cheese" (Strained yogurt, that is.)
Instead of sour cream; for mushroom-braised chicken

Pork Tenderloin with Salsa Verde

Pasta with 3 Ps: pesto, peas, Parmiggiano-Reggiano


Boiled New Potatoes with Paprika Butter
This didn't turn out the way I imagined. The potatoes weren't the waxy kind!! =(
But, I still haven't given up on my boiled potatoes!

Hazelnut Oil Grilled Radicchio

Sautéed Kale with Golden Foccacia Bread Crumbs

Roasted Bell Peppers w/ couscous & feta


Gelato Log Cake
Haha, the "yule log" didn't really go with the birthday theme.


  1. Aha!! That yule log is probably a left-over Christmas item from your gelato shop. Right??

  2. Actually, I made it for our New Year's menu, but there was so much food and so many desserts that we didn't get a chance to put it out. =)
