well heres the thing I was thinking I might be able to do a beef carpaccio as an appetizer. I went to the ACF meeting today and we had a 5 course meal and beef carpaccio was part of the 1st course and i loved it.

Also I understand that I need to be making my own things and i love being creative and making the presentation look great however I really enjoy making the classic french and italian dishes especially french. Until I learn more about classical/traditional dishes I dont want to go crazy overboard.

I have rethought the creme freche and grey poupon sauce and I am thinking about going with with a creme freche and lemon infused sauce if I stick with salmon so that the flavor of the salmon will be sort of toned down. If I was going to make a beef carpaccio I think I would serve it possible with a Bernaise sauce.

When I said Creme Fraiche and lemon juice infused I ment combind the Creme Fraiche with the lemon juice and zest.

Beef appetizer, then fish, then meat agoin, mmm, not a good idea in my book. Fish comes first then meat, no mixing.

Why does it hafto to be a meat or fish appetizer ?It could be something else with vegetables or cheese or something Phyllo dough or puff dough filled with something like artichoke.aparagus or mushroom and some french cheese filling.Like a great salad {small} and something with the above to go with it.
Cheese ramekins? Possibilities are endless.

I really want to do a carpaccio so I will do just the beef carpaccio. I will not use the salmon anymore.

Also I will probably do a reduced balsamic vinager over the beef carpaccio it should be good.

Make sure you get some good balsamic. I dunno if this is allowed b/c of your age, but balsamic/red wine redux. are pretty tasty as well.

I think they would let me because I'm not getting drunk so it should be alright.
