Cooking Up A Storm!

  The gourmet club gathered at our house Saturday night and cooked up a storm!
Our contribution was the entree and dessert cheese plate.
Mr. A brined cornish game hens in honey and soy, then seasoned them with sea salt, pepper and poultry seasoning.

But first, we started with pomegranate martinis...

...hors d'oeuvres of fried sage leaves, kale chips and brie with apple compote. (not pictured)

Meanwhile, the hens were roasting, the homemade butternut squash raviolis were boiling...

...and the brussel sprouts with chestnuts and bacon were sautéing!

A lovely kale salad...

...was followed by the first course.  
A delicious kale soup.
Ummm, what's with kale everywhere?

The last course, a cheese, fruit and cheese platter.
I handpicked the various cheeses to go with figs, my son-in-law's fig compote and candied walnuts.

To end it all, there were pumpkin spice latte's all around!

Please email me here if you would like recipes for any of the dishes.
I think almost all of them would be perfect for Thanksgiving!

I'm joining Rattlebridge Farm for Foodie Friday!

Pin It!

Everything looks wonderful! Those brussel sprouts are sizzling to perfection with all the bacon drippings and those cheese and figs are one of my favorite combinations.

What a fun idea idea to host a gourmet club.

Enjoy your Thanksgiving
