Nowadays I don’t have much time to write long blog posts (has it really been since APRIL?). Probably because I got one of those j-o-b things. But I am going to make an effort to post photos and (short!) stories about meals I’m lucky to share with the great friends I’ve made since moving to Jacksonville almost exactly two years ago.
Figured I’d start with my favorite meal yet! Earlier this year, friends invited Phil and me to a privately-catered 12 course dinner by Chef Brian Siebenschuh of Restaurant Orsay. Yeah. I know.
The menu went a little something like this:
Ahi tuna topped with University of Georgia Siberian sturgeon caviar and a sliver of red onion.
Raw bar with a variety of oysters, mussels and shrimp.
Salmon tartar on potato crisps.
Country ham with heirloom tomatoes.
Delish roasted fish over awesome veggies (sorry, memory not so good!)
Poached egg and asparagus salad.
Foi gras, berry compote, challah.
Roast salmon over lentils.
Duck confit over field peas.
Melon sorbet with prosciutto.
Bacon and chocolate.
You know it’s good when you end with bacon dipped in chocolate.
Best. Meal. Ever. Thanks friends! :)
