It’s been several weeks since the last February Dinner, and it was about time for the next event. This weekend I had organized, cooked and hosted dinner for open crowd once again. The concept of these evenings is simple: giving you the opportunity to taste my cookings, inspired each time by the season and mood, while engaging at a dinner party hosting 12 unfamiliar people, in a unique evening which combines the excitement of new flavors and a completely different type of social event. Each event consists of two similar consecutive evenings, 12 guests per evening. They meet, sometimes for the first time and often find a connection between them, sit down to a tasting menu dinner journey, composed fully by me, cooked and served by a small and friendly hosting crew.
I love to see the reaction of guests tasting a product for the first time or trying again something they previously believed they dislike and now changed their minds. I also enjoy the whole process of figuring out the new menu, combining textures and flavors in my mind, then imaging how it would taste like together. I like trying new dishes, techniques and ingredients that I never tried before. Then I’m going to the market to buy the ingredients and when I’m in the market I’m the most happy person I can possibly be. I’m gradually learning about managing a crew and organizing the tasks for prep time and service time, and enjoy this process as well. It’s still a big challenge to pull each one of these evenings but I find it pleasurable and love the accomplishments and improvements from one night to the next.
I hope my guests enjoyed as much as I did, and hope to see you next event (which will take place in the end of May).
