Well done Dave I am a Mushroom and Truffle fanatic, my wife cannot stand them which is funny as she was born in Pula the home of the world record white truffle, if you google zigante tartufi you get the shop the restaurant web site in under construction, its worth a look.

Thanks everyone.

And Kathleen, use more mozzarella than you think you will need in the appetizer.

Good tip as Kathleen can go a bit light on the cheese (as far as I cam concerned). OF course we have different ideas on what enough cheese really means.

There's that difference of opinion here, too. The more cheese the better!

Dave; The presentations weren't like the fancy/smancy presentations from, say, Iron Chef. What they were was amazing. In their simplicity, you made my mouth water, and created an extreme desire to be present at that meal. The flavors, the care with which you combined textures, and the thought you put into each dish, well this raises you to genius level. You took foods you weren't absolutely comfortable with, and hit home runs all day long.

Good job!

Wow, I feel like such a beginner by comparison, even with the years of experimental experience that I have. The cheesecake idea was sublime. But that's ok. I'm still coming at you. And ole Goodweed still has a few tricks I haven't displayed.

Seeeeeya; Goodweed of the North

Jut fantabulous Dave!! I want to try all of those recipes but the Portabella Puff just knocks my socks off. What an ingenious and impressive first course.
The whole presentation was right on !!
