Sunny Food for Happy People, and More...

Valentine’s Day 2019


Valentine’s Day 2019


That’s it, the 2019 Valentine’s Day Dinner Party is over. No complains, everybody was happy, the food left the kitchen on a steady stream, and the whole team was very efficient. What else to ask for?

I think it was one of my best Valentine’s Day menu. Because I knew I had the staff to help me with – and they did – and the desire to do something great also. Next year should be even better. Of course I didn’t manage to do exactly what I had in mind and I had to improvise while doing the prep, but as you will see with the pictures, I think everything was pretty nice.

The Duck Breast was just excellent, I finally found a very good supplier that import them directly from France.

And the masterpiece – the dessert – was a combination of great chocolate from Callebaut and Valrhona. All the 3 taste – Passion Fruit, Ruby and Gold – fit very well together. It took me 3 days to make all the base – I have only 6 forms – but it really was worth the effort.
