Richmond's 65th Birthday Dinner

Richmond's 65th Birthday Dinner was the first time I tried a fancy dinner at home. I was pretty nervous, but it worked out beautifully.

The theme was "What might have been served at Locke-Ober to celebrate Richmond's birth?" Almost all of the recipes came from a Locke-Ober cookbook that Annette had found somewhere and given to me (making her an unwitting accomplice - she was not hinting for a fancy dinner!)

Here's what we had:

  • Smoked Trout and Wellfleet Oysters with Talisker Scotch Whiskey

  • Vermentino di Sardegna Costamolino 2002

    Vichysoisse with Fresh Tarragon

    Mousse of Sole Cardinale

  • Grecante Grechetto Colli Martani 2002

    Green Peas a la Menthe

    Stuffed Turnips

    Glazed Onions

    Chicken Saute Richmond

  • Porto Colheita 1983

    Cheeses: Societe Roquefort, 4-year Aged Gouda

  • Cherries Jubilee and Hot Tea
