For anyone interested in the menu, here it is:
Firstly I made some kind of finger food to eat while waiting for the first course along with champagne. It was the following combinations:
Turkey, a spicy cream cheese and cucumber
Cream cheese, tomato, balsamic and basil
Cream cheese, salmon and caviar
Cream cheese, fresh shrimps and caviar
The first real course was Sashimi (raw salmon in soy sauce, rice vinegar and lime juice) with a sweet cucumber salad and a cream made from avocado and creme fraiche.
The second course was a home-made pasta with lobster sauce and fresh shrimp. The dish was served with parmesan cheese, asparagus fried in butter and a hot creamy sauce made from cream cheese and several spices.
The main course was what I understand is called a filet of beef? I cooked it using only salt and pepper and served it with a red wine sauce and oven cooked potatoes, onions and tomatoes.
The dessert was surprisingly my favorite part. I’m not a very talented baker and I don’t enjoy it either but this time it was different. I decided to go with three main flavours: raspberry, lemon and white chocolate. And so I made caramelised lemon zest, lemon curd (store bought) and a lemon cake. I used the mixture of sugar, water and lemon juice (that I used when I caramelised the lemon zest) to moisturize the cake and give it extra flavour. I also included fresh raspberries, a raspberry sorbet and a raspberry mousse placed in a sweet thin biscuit made from oats, shaped like a cylinder. I also included a white chocolate and lemon ball from Lindt, small meringues and lemon balm leaves.
And that included my first ever four course New Years eve meal.
