my friend, michael hoare (hd chef @ the chelsea) & i declared whilst chatting one day that we are both big fans of the river cafe cook books....from there a plan/menu was devised to have a long lunch with our families, inspired by the river cafe cook books.
i was assigned to the bruschetta & dessert (i got the easy options)....while michael put his hand up for the pasta dish & the poultry main.
our menu comprised of:
bruschetta (1) garlic & oregano white beans w roasted balsamic cherry tomatoes & grated reggiano
bruschetta (2) grilled zucchini w pan seared onion, pancetta, basil & sliced salted ricotta
pasta - freshly made tagliatelle w fig, chilli & double cream (recipe from the river cafe cook book easy, silver cover pg 90)
main - baked chicken in milk w sage (recipe from the river cafe cook book easy, silver cover pg 146)
making fresh tagliatelle...
michaels potatoes ready for baking & chicken seared ready for the oven
main meal ready for serving...delicious!
let us eat & drink...
