The first Monday of each month, our immediate family gets together for dinner - alternating houses.
This month Carlos and I are hosting at my house.
Carlos is heavily involved with Jacques Pepin and his cooking show right now, so we have decided to cook everything from Episode 208 of his cooking show.
Jacques loves all eggs, all ways! Cooking them correctly is an important technique, and who better to demonstrate the perfect hard-cooked egg than a master of technique! Jacques begins this menu with hard-cooked eggs used as a garnish for his Asparagus Fans with Mustard Sauce. Simply seared in moments, Scallops Grenobloise is the ultimate fast dish and when served with Potato Gratin with Cream, it makes a rich main course. Jam Tartines with Fruit Sherbet conclude the menu.
Carlos is making the asparagus and the dessert. I am making the scallops and the potato dishes.
This should be fun; we haven't tried French food yet in our Cooking Challenges.
Here is Jacques Pepin's video, complete with all the recipes:
After our dinner, we'll publish the recipes we used.
Until then, Bon Appétit!
