What a great gift to have my talented friend, Angelique come to my home on Friday and cook a fantastic meal for my 70th Birthday present.
It was great to not have to worry about finding a restaurant and be among a few friends, enjoying the evening.
We started with the Pearl Mozarella Salad with candied cherry tomatoes.
Followed by Marinated Salmon in a lemon basil sauce, accompanied by Risotto with mushroom, asparagus and truffle with shaved parmesan.
She also made Chicken Puttanesca with a spicy Neapolitan tomato sauce, olives, garlic and capers. It's an Italian pasta dish invented in Naples in the mid-20th century. Fun fact: Puttanesca sauce is named for Italian ladies of the night.
We ended the night with a wonderful Tiramisu!
