Broadcasting a V-Day Dinner
It’s not easy to come up with a different menu to broadcast 6 – 7 nights a week. Sometimes I want to come home, prop my feet up and go into the kitchen for nothing more than a sandwich or a bowl of soup. But I persevere. The viewers and ChannelZ give me the spark needed each night to make it happen on Justopia.com.
On the show tonight, we cooked a DEElicious multi-course dinner that anyone can recreate for their own Valentine’s Day dinner. We started with simple, but much loved Deviled Eggs. Nothing more than perfectly hard boiled eggs with a yolk mixture of chopped onions, celery, flat leaf parsley, mayonnaise and dijon mustard piped into the cooked egg white and Voila! Deviled Eggs.
Using green wonton wrappers (green for spinach? wasabi? I’m not sure since the wrapper package was written in an Asian language) we created a filling of dried salami, sweet gorgonzola and mascarpone cheese. I fit the wonton wrappers into a muffin tin and brushed them with butter before putting in the oven. As soon as they came out of the oven they were filled with the cheese mixture so that the cheese would melt a bit.
We made a salad of thinly sliced Radishes, celery and cucumber and topped with avocado. The dressing was an olive oil and raspberry vinegar vinaigrette with salt and pepper.
The chicken was dipped in egg mixed with a tablespoon of soy sauce and bread crumbs before frying up in a pan with soy bean oil and olive oil. The key to the moist chicken was brining for two hours prior to frying which made it extremely moist!
Dessert was DEElightfully DEElicious! I dipped chocolate chip cookies I made on the weekend and hand crafted marshmallows (purchased at Williams-Sonoma) in bittersweet chocolate ganache. DEEcadent! The marshmallows were then dipped in either toasted desiccated coconut or toasted chopped pecans.
Who could NOT love these treats?!
I’m not sure what was going on with my fellow broadcasters on Justin.tv, but I can pretty much guarantee there wasn’t a meal like this being created on camera!
