Sunday Dinner Night Edition
Starter 1: 3 types of goat cheese (soft, medium soft, and medium hard) served with crackers and acacia honey (not pictured).
Starter 2: "Meat Sticks" Imported Prosciutto wrapped on Grissini sticks and served with Melon.
Starter 3: Crack Candy. Candied Almonds. I used the David Lebovitz recipe. So easy to do and so freakin' good.
I made a cumin flavored batch and a cinnamon flavored batch. I prefer cinnamon.
Gnochetti all Sorrentina.
Finished Baccalà Livornese. It ended up a bit salty(despite soaking it for 36 hours) and I did forget to put the pinenut and raisins in the dish when it was going into the oven. Not an easy dish to pull off but I think there is potential. It's just too complicated and time consuming to do very often.

Dessert 1: Castagnaccio. A chestnut flour cake.
Dessert 2: (not pictured) Strawberries and Marscapone + sugar.
