What we ate on Saturday

Last Saturday, I put on a Farmers market dinner. There were 8 of us in the backyard of the supper club, and we had:

  • Smoked trout appetizer, smoked trout flaked and mixed with cream cheese and horseradish, on a rye bread crumb crust, with diced cucumbers tossed with fresh dill on top. It was good, but the trout by itself on crackers might have been even better, especially with horseradish and cucumbers on the side. I put the little bites in a ring on the edges of 2 plates with a pile of sungold cherry tomatoes in the middle of each one - pretty.
  • Cheese tortelloni with bacon, corn, basil and tomatoes - like an August, 2007 Gourmet recipe, but bacon instead of prosciutto
  • Pounded chicken cutlets, sauteed in olive oil, topped with melon balls seasoned with lemon and chile, and wilted arugula (like the NYT recipe, "low food", 7/22/2007)
  • Salad with balsamic vinaigrette
  • Cherry pie- I tried to make an almond crust, it had some marzipan in it, but it was not quite short enough, not buttery enough, for me anyways.
