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.

A dinner party among friends

As part of our personal chef services, Lindsey contacted me to prepare a special dinner for herself and two friends, one who is getting married in June.  Lindsey wanted a special evening and thought having a personal chef cook in her home would be a treat.  Lindsey and I worked on a menu to include gluten-free foods with a vegetarian option.  The menu we worked up, courtesy of Chef Alba Johnson from her Brazilian and French Cooking classes, was:

Pao de Queijo (cheese puffs) made with tapioca flour
Brazilian Coconut Chicken (where we substituted Cod, Shrimp and tofu for the chicken)
Brazilian Stuffed Peppers
Tarte fine aux pommes (Tart with thin apples where we substituted a dish in place of the puff pastry tart)

Lindsey lives in a beautiful condo in Fells Point overlooking the harbor.  What a magnificent kitchen to cook in!  After meeting Lindsey’s friends, Jeannie and Emily (the bride-to-be), I sat down with these three beautiful ladies and reviewed what we would be preparing for their dinner.  Then I quickly got down to work.  With their help, we prepared all the ingredients that we would need for the dishes. Dinner was ready about 9 PM (they snacked on the Pao de Queijo).  After dinner, I prepared the Apple tart.  Lindsey’s comment to me via a text message was “we had a fabulous evening.  Thank you again for making it fun and, not to mention, absolutely delicious”  I, too, had a lot of fun cooking for these three lovely ladies. Jeannie sent me an email: “Thanks for a wonderful meal on Saturday! It was a perfect way to enjoy our girls night out with added delicious entertainment.  It was a treat.”.
