Greg's Posthumous Dinner Party Last Friday Night

I'm back from the dead, bitches.

I know that many of you are wondering, "What did Greg end up serving at his dinner party last Friday night?" Here's what I did:

[bold] Hors d'oeuvre [/bold]

Platter of Smoked Catfish—served with Cream Cheese mixed with Red Onion & Lemon Zest; Crostini; Cornichons; Oil-Cured Black Olives; Smoked Almonds.

----------------------------

[bold] Entree [/bold]

Rack of Australian Lamb with Demi-grace

Barley & Parmesan Risotto

Glazed Carrot (each plate had one perfectly glazed whole carrot on the plate

Sautéed Brussels Sprouts (cut in half and browned a bit on the cut side)

-------------------

[bold] Salad & Cheese Course [/bold]

Salad, Baguette, and Three Cheeses (Chèvre, Parmigiano Reggiano, and Aged Gouda)

-------------------

[bold] Dessert [/bold]

Roasted Pear, Vanilla Ice Cream, & Homemade Salted Caramel Sauce

I was thinking of DL when one of my guests who is a wine collector wrote to us ahead of time to ask if we would mind if he provided wine from his cellar that he thought would go very well with the lamb. Of course I was happy that he would do that. He brought two bottles each of the following wine:

1999 Cos d'Estournel — absolutely delicious!

2000 Domaine des Remizières Hermitage — also quite lovely

Before dinner most of us had Manhattans and someone had a gin & tonic.

It was a lovely evening.

Sounds wonderful, Greg.

If only I could have attended, I would have brought that something "extra" I bring to so many occasions and gala celebrations.

by Anonymousreply 2November 21, 2021 11:15 PM

Translation. I served stale Triscuits smeared with prunes and cat hair to my dinner party. Felicity, Molly and Josefina thought the hair was an especially classy touch, but Ruthie (being the bitch she always is) thought the prunes needed more stewing. Overall, it was one of my finer to dos.

p. s. I’m taking catering orders for Thanksgiving. Gobble gobble!!

Peel and wash your carrots.

Place carrots in a sauté pan that can accommodate them in one layer.

Add 4 Tablespoons of unsalted butter and enough water to come ¼ inch up the sides.

Turn the heat to medium and do not cover.

Cook gently until the water is evaporated.

Add a little salt and ¼ teaspoon of sugar. Continue cooking, adding from 2 to 3 tablespoons water as needed.

Cook gently until the carrot is tender.

Sprinkle with chopped chives or parsley.

Sprinkle lightly with Maldon salt flakes.

What kind of stuffing will you make? Don't stress about this. Stuffing is easy, just make sure it's moist. I once had stuffing at someone's house and the stuffing croutons were so dry they could have rolled around on the plate. You don't want to make it like that!

Not fancy epicurean advice but:

I make dressing/stuffing for myself around this time of year. Pepperidge Farms mix has become oddly sweet. It may not taste the same to you.

Luckily it’s not my first stuffing rodeo, but this is the first time I’ve made it for more than 7 people!

I bought a couple loaves today at the farmers’ market, sourdough and farmers’ bread—but I may need another! I’ll tear those up on Wednesday into small pieces and set them out to dry overnight.

Sauté in butter and oil a big pack of celery and some nice onions I found at the market, maybe throw some shallots and leeks in there too. S & p and a bunch of herbs at the end, then deglaze with white wine and dry sherry. Beat a few eggs into some chicken stock while that’s all cooking.

Mix everything together by hand and add a little lemon juice, any more seasoning needed.

Pop in the oven covered in foil to get that stuffing magic. I’ll finish it off at the hosts’ house to get a crispy top.

I still think that cooking "stuffing" outside of the bird which you "stuff" in order to make the "stuffing" makes no sense and is also for pussies.

Unless you're a cancer or AIDS victim in which case I'm sure a sneeze in the wrong direction will make your sorry ass drop dead, I guess.

Thanks! Not sure what's "strange" about smoked catfish. My guests ate it all up. I love smoked fish. You may not like it, but it's hardly strange. It wasn't really a starter, but an hors d'oeuvre served in the library during the cocktail hour. You don't like smoked fish with cream cheese, red onion, and lemon zest? It's so good!

Greg, did you smoke your own catfish? If not, where did you get it? It is a moist smoked fish like salmon or more dry? My dad used to make smoked trout when we went camping/fishing and it was so amazing. Damn, I miss that man.

BTW, your friend has good taste in wine. Cos d'Estournel is an all-time favorite. It needs lots of cellar time, but it's worth the wait.

For the Greg haters: It would be a lot more entertaining if your attacks were funny and creative instead of psychotic and cringe-inducing.

Yes, I smoke it myself. I have an outdoor electric smoker. It's easy to use and it works very well. I smoke catfish, brisket, and pork shoulder. I want to try other things, but haven't had the chance. It's more dry than moist. Yes, smoked trout is great. I also like smoked bluefish but usually in a paté.

[quote] BTW, your friend has good taste in wine. Cos d'Estournel is an all-time favorite. It needs lots of cellar time, but it's worth the wait.

Yes, that wine was pretty amazing. He's been collecting wine for a while. He told me he has around 1,500 bottles in his cellar.
