The Kids Cook Monday – February 14th, 2011 “Alessandra Impresses 12”

Sorry for the delay in writing this post. We had quite an event last weekend where I cooked a multiple course dinner for my anniversary dinner. There were a total of 12 people at the dinner, including my wife and I. After a busy week I can finally write a short note on our special night and dinner. Would you believe Alessandra had a big roll in the most successful dish of the night?  Pan seared Pacific Halibut with a mustard vinaigrette. Her vinaigrette made the dish amazing. recipe is from the legendary Eric Ripert, executive chef of Le Bernadin.

Going back several days, Alessandra made a very nice mustard vinaigrette and we saved it for the upcoming dinner party. After cooking some halibut and mashed potatoes, it all came together with her dressing. “Can I lick the plate?”, was one of the quotes we heard. It’s touching when your 3-year-old daughter can contribute to a very special dinner and have a big impression. She got her first glimpse of how her cooking can make other people very happy.

I promise that we are going to cook this week and the plan is making fresh brioche bread and have a ton of fun doing it.

Have a wonderful holiday weekend!
