Recipes from two guys who have always loved cooking.
It is definitely Holiday Season and there’s nothing better than eating your friends and family. I decided to make dinner for a group of friends here in San Francisco, and had even some visit from out of town. It was certainly a challenge cooking for 13 people but a love a good old challenge. I wanted make some comfort food that does not require any explanation (if you do email me). Here’s a menu I made for our dinner:
Truffle always makes things better. Yes I was cheating , but it was great!
I wanted to start with a creamy risotto to get everyone going before the big feast. To mix it up, I made an Orzo risotto, one of my favorites. You can’t beat the versatility of risotto.
Then back to tradition (or someone’s tradition) with stuffing and meat. Yes, no turkey. Can’t be bothered with turkey. But a cornish hen was perfect for everyone! I hope my portobello mushroom substitute was good enough for the vegetarians. But really, green (and yellow) casserole was divine as usual.
Happy holidays everyone! This is definitely a time to enjoy cooking and eating with your friends and family. And yes, it beats and restaurant or bar!
I would also like to thank the Smiley Family for having me over for Thanksgiving. You guys are great and I am so thankful to have you all as friends.
