Angel and Marty recently hosted a seven-course dinner party themed the Seven Deadly Sins. Angel’s brother, Stephen, planned the menu and cooked some of the best food I’ve ever eaten.
First, greed: lobster corn dog with white truffle popcorn
Second, anger: scallop ceviche alla diavalo
Third, envy: artisan lettuce, walnuts, blueberry stilton and lemon vinaigrette
Fourth, gluttony: mung bean noodles with bacon, spinach and cream sauce
Then, sorbet: cranberry vanilla, saffron and apple cider
Apparently I forgot to continue taking pictures of the courses. But next on the menu was sloth: short ribs, pumpkin seed risotto and broccoli rabe, and then pride: parmigiano three ways: consume, soufflé and shortbread.
Lastly, lust: chocolate truffles: rose, lavender and cayenne
our generous hostess and host
our super-fun fellow guests
Thanks, Angel, Marty and Stephen!
