Foodblogger's Welcome Dinner

Thanks for tagging me, Claudia!

Angelika from the flying apple had a great idea: an imaginary dinner with friends from the foodblog universe - what would you offer?
Often I dream of nice dinners with my friends, sitting on a lovely decorated table, eating and drinking, laughing and talking the whole night long. In my dreams, the wooden, long table is situated in the garden - or at least with view through the balcony door.

Well, facing the facts: I haven't got a garden, nor a balcony, but only a 20 qm student apartment. I love cooking for my friends, but I think I've never invited them for having a real menu. So this is the first time I choose the food for the whole evening. Wow.

I thought, I dreamt and thought again. And decided to choose things, I really could do here. Here in my room, with 2 cooking plates and about 20 cm workspace. Without the table - because there my guests would sit. So it was important, that I could do most of the work before my friends' arrival. Another point to pay attention to: My fridge isn't thaat big. More than 2 bowls could become difficult.

So here we go:

* Framboise, framboise - first a glass of champagne with fresh raspberry-puree (ok, I haven't got glasses for the champagne. But I would buy some for this occasion)
*Green and red salad with pears and caramelized pecans
* Filet of porc with fine ribbon noodles with a chanterelle-white wine-cream
* Mango creme brulée
* Espresso or cappuccino with self-made chocolate cantuccini

As wine I would choose a wonderful fruity white wine I've forgotten the name.. (I think it was from van volxem), I would have to scrounge some bottles from my father.. ;-)

Music would be decent Katie Melua (no, you wouldn't have to listen to gothic music ;-) ).. ahh, I hope I'll have such an evening in the near future :).

So.. what would you offer your friends,
Ralph from Hungrig in San Francisco and
Petra from Foodfreak?


  1. Hallo Kathi, welch' schönes Menü! Champagner mit Himbeermark mmmhhh...ich hätte übrigens auch keine Champagnergläser ;-)
    Auf die Mango Créme brulée wäre ich schon sehr gespannt.
    Danke, dass Du mitgemacht hast und gleich so schnell warst!

  2. Mmmh, das klingt köstlich! Wann kann ich vorbeikommen? ;-)

  3. Oh Kathi, I am so excited that you have been tagged by Claudia AND that you have been so quick. You are the second who has sent me the menu, after Claudia only ! The menu will be on my list on Tuesday since until then I will concentrate on spoiling my guests. Thank you and needless to say HOW I love your menu. By the way, what I especially love about your choices - apart from the dishes - is that you also told about the MUSIC ! How could I forget about that (Tanna right now adds that I did not forget here...)----- Thank you for the inspiration and I will COME for sure ;-) angelika

  4. @Dolce: Naja, der Champagner wäre wahrscheinlich Sekt - aber Sektgläser hab ich auch nicht ;-). Und für die Mango Creme brûlée gibts tatsächlich ein Rezept - wen wunderts - hier:

    Hat mir wirklich viel Spaß gemacht, über das Menu nachzudenken und es zusammenzustellen :).
