Another year has come and gone,
and we sent 2016 packing
with a Fete Noire.
In attendance were the usual suspects,
Kim and Kimberly, Todd and me.
The table was done entirely in black and white
for a Fete Noire.
The stack was a large, square black charger, topped with a square
black dinner plate, a square white salad plate, and the cup for the soup.
But, it needed a little zing, so a black and white doily
was added under the soup cup to break up all the white.
Eiffel Tower napkin rings.
The menu was entirely seafood.
A King crab leg, broccoli timbale, and scallops in Irish butter.
The scallops were sauteed, placed over a bed of garlic spinach, then topped with
a gremolata of garlicky bread crumbs, olive oil, parsley, and lemon zest.
My favorite scallop presentation ever.
And, Happy New Year to all of you
from A Graceful Table.
