October of 2020 … we naively thought the worst of the pandemic was over. And it was so good to get together, since we had barely seen each other during the lockdown. We decided to be super indulgent and chose My Paris Kitchen by David Lebovitz as our cookbook for the meal. So many good recipes!
I was responsible for the appetizer, and made the Onion Tart. First of all, I am allergic to onions. Not the ‘throat closing, can’t breathe’ kind of allergic, but allergic nonetheless. And look at that mound of onions!
Secondly, I barely like anchovies, but can take them in small doses. So of course I think I bought the biggest ones out there!
It was delicious! And I will definitely make it again! For the recipe, click here: https://www.eatlivetravelwrite.com/2016/12/french-fridays-onion-tart-from-my-paris-kitchen/
Dee made the Fennel, Radish, Orange, and Crab Salad – OMG!! It was so beautiful and delicious! The recipe can be found here: https://www.eatlivetravelwrite.com/2017/12/french-fridays-fennel-radish-orange-and-crab-salad-from-my-paris-kitchen/
Laura (and Dave) were the hosts, and served Steak Frites. Délicieux! Dave made the steaks using the sous vide method, which was super smart when serving eight people, and wanting to get the meat done at the same time at the correct temperature.

Nancy made the dessert – and it was spectacular! The Salted Butter Caramel-Chocolate Mousse is super indulgent, and just what we needed to finish this meal. The recipe can be found here: https://unwrittenrecipes.com/blog/2016/my-paris-kitchens-salted-butter-caramel-chocolate-mousse-famous-fridays
So much fun, food, friendship, and doggies!
