March Charm City Cookbooking

So boy was this awhile ago, but man it was a delicious and definitely enjoyable evening!Β  So life seems to be in a whirlwind right now, with moving and a previously insane work load, but now it seems that work is calming down so alas I have time to enjoy my passion! πŸ˜€

Joanne chose Elizabeth David’s a South Wind through the Kitchen. This lady is a no nonsense goddess who brought French and Italian cooking to the masses in England in the 1950’s and later.Β Β  Her recipes are so simple and magically they turn out very well.

I made the onion soup, with no beef broth! I know it was weird, but it ended up tasting just fine (maybe with the extra help from Joanne’s parmesan addition!) Check out the rest of our dishes below.

Here is Julie‘s masterpiece- definitely made with a lot of love and handwork! Baked mussels (previously steamed with a nice broth) with parsley and breadcrumbs, etc!

Joanne and Coralie two timed on our entree. Veal osso bucco and a nice and fresh lemon risotto. With the tomatoes and fresh herbs, this dish felt perfect for the change in weather that is coming about. Yay spring!

Now this osso bucco lead to my absolute favorite part of eating that night- MARROW!! With butter on freshly toasted bread! Heaven. Pure and simple.

Lastly, Renee made a nice fluffy hand kneaded cake with raisins and currants and other delicious things! It went great with the creme fraiche and coffee ice creams. Boy I love ice cream and I love it even more when there’s cake!
