Thank you!

My Dad used to call our table the GD catch-all. I never really saw it as a problem. I always cleaned it off to eat!

I've decided I'm recreating everthing, but the tea, again in the next couple of weeks. May play with new mushrooms as they become available. The dessert stays, I need to buy another can of lychees and find out if I can get fresh ones!

Thanks, Dave!

Very nice your Ogreness. I am wonderfully impressed. I think maybe I should bow out of the competition because you and Kathleen have set the bar pretty high.




Nah!

(I am doing mine Thursday)

Arrange sliced Strawberries in a flower pattern, center 1-2 Lychee Nuts on the berries, arrange Mint leaves for garnish. Take 2 tablespoons of the reserved syrup and whisk in 1 teaspoon of Truffle Oil, drizzle over fruit. Serve chilled.


Critique: Shrek, “Tastes different, it’s good.” “You can have all the Lychee nuts, I don’t like them.” “It’s pretty, how’d you make the flowers?”

I loved it, but I like Lychee Nuts. It was all a great flavor all together, sweet and tart. I really thought the truffle oil would mask the flavors, but it didn’t. I had enough leftover to make it again and had it for dessert again.



Note: Lychee Flower, I took one lychee and put a small piece of one nut into the hole of the first, the others, I split and stacked around the whole one. I thought it turned out nicely!

Ending comment: This meal was well prepped beforehand. The sautéing, the Dashi, and the shiitake broth were all done about 3 hours before the meal. The rice and hour before and kept warm in the cooker. When it came time to eat, I just warmed tea broth, and the dashi and we sat and ate soup. Then I warmed the Confit and grilled the Salmon and we sat and ate the part of the meal. By then we were both stuffed and waited a while for the dessert. That took about 5 minutes to go from can and container to eating.

A very good meal and fun to make and show off some of my newly acquired skills with Japanese fare and flavors.
What a gorgeous (and delicious sounding) dessert!
