Food plays a very important role in my life. I love my food, am an avowed foodsnob and I love cooking for my family and for my husband. Having said that, I am neither creative nor especially good as a cook. Cooking for company makes me nervous.
Tomorrow night I am set to cook for a colleague of the Spouse's. I am mildly apprehensive. The colleague is French, which doesn't help. The French can be so particular about food (this guy seems pretty nice though). Btw, I notice that Americans call main courses Entrees. This is completely ridiculous. Entrees, purely linguistically, are starters. Not ever main courses. I mean seriously, if you are going to import word at least remember the meaning. Anyway, so I am making dinner for the three of us. Wish me luck.
Here's a recipe that's too intimidating for me to cook. I am making something easier.
