Episode #13 Assignments

5 Feb

We’ve got a big crowd for this one, so we’re going to have some teaming up.  If anyone wants to switch or co-ordinate courses, make the arrangements and post your intentions in the comments.  Also, post here if anyone has food allergies, or phobias, or things you don’t eat.

  • 6pm: Prep-time snacks & cocktail: Rod
  • 7pm: Appetizer: JDavid
  • 7:30pm: Soup: Courtney
  • 8pm: 1st Main + Side: Suzanne & Kent
  • 8:30pm  Small dish or salad: Hilary
  • 9pm: 2nd Main + Side: Valeria & Ken
  • 10pm: Desert: Francine

In addition, we have two guests from out-of-town, one from France, and one from Italy.  They will each be responsible for an amuse bouche (or beverage) to be presented whenever they like, between the above courses.

Dishes for this 13th episode of the FMC should be somehow reference or be inspired by superstition, rituals, etc.  How you interpret that is limited only by your imagination.  Plan on small portions, even for the main courses, and remember — the courses (except for the amuses) are served with a paired beverage.  There may be some surprise guests, so plan on being able to serve 12 portions.  We’re going to have a lot of plates and glasses to flip between courses, so anyone not cooking, be sure to help out with the service.  Any questions about what to expect, check out this post, or prior episodes.  The equipment list has been updated, too.  See you all in a couple weeks!
