Valentines dinner in Accokeek, Md.

Kia contacted me to do a Valentines Day dinner for her husband, Kabuchi, and herself.  We created the following menu:

  • Green salad with raspberry balsamic dressing
  • Appetizer: White wine shrimp and pasta
  • Entrée: Crab-stuffed Filet Mignon in a whiskey peppercorn Sauce
  • Side Dish: Sautéed asparagus in olive oil, garlic and balsamic vinegar
  • Dessert: Apple Crisp:  a baked apple dish with brown sugar served with Vanilla Ice Cream

I arrived at their beautiful new home about 5 PM and met Kia and Kabuchi for the first time.  After discussing what  service  I would be providing that evening, I began preparing their special dinner in their lovely kitchen.  Kia had purchased some nice red wines for the dinner, of which I opened one and served for them.  We took our time, having great conversation about whiskeys (I used Makers Mark for the whiskey peppercorn sauce and Kabuchi and I sampled some.  During the service, Kaleb, their (almost) 3 month old son awoke to see what was going on.  The service completed about 9 PM.  It was a very nice evening and the food turned out great. Below are some photo’s that Kia took.
