Special Dinner: November 2014

December 8, 2014 § Leave a comment

For the 2014 special dinners, Mr. E suggested we should look at some of the less often used cookbooks in our household for inspiration. For November, Mr. E picked the Best-Ever Curry Cookbook: Over 150 Great Curries from India and Asia by Mridula Baljekar.

Since we were also preparing to host Thanksgiving, we kept this special dinner very, very simple. Mr. E cooked rice and three curries for us to sample. There was chicken in cashew nut sauce, kidney bean curry, and fish in a rich tomato and onion sauce. The fish came from our local fish share and was delicious, as it always is.

For the table, I used saturated colors – green, blue and red – and a no-nonsense setting with lots of candles. Since we were sampling and wanted unrestricted access to the dishes, we just put the cooking vessels down in the middle of the table. This was a very pragmatic special dinner. πŸ™‚

I think the chicken cashew was my favorite – it was so creamy without any added dairy. Yum!
