Before moving to Baltimore, we lived in Washington DC, where we both still work. As strange as this sounds, it takes more effort to see the people who live within a couple of miles than our old friends in DC. So on Saturday night, we had a little dinner party with just friends from Baltimore. Here’s the recap.
First – after a bite of fennel sausage with tomato jam – was a light salad of white button mushrooms, Pink Lady apples, and celery.
Next, cauliflower soup with roasted cauliflower and crouton.
Third, spaghetti with sea urchin roe and whitefish caviar (actually, I prepared risotto with sea urchin roe for the party. I made the spaghetti Sunday night to use up the rest of the roe).
Fourth, roast pork belly, with fennel and braised bunashimeiji and oyster mushrooms.
We finished with matcha panna cotta and 73% bittersweet chocolate.
Stay tuned for the recipes if you’d like to try any of these dishes.
