Upcoming Sunday Lunch

Menu

Starters

  • Lightly-cured Hamachi with Furikake and Edamame Wasbi sauce
  • Nasu Gratin: an eggplant gratin with Miso Tofu sauce
  • Basil Tofu Salad with Gorgonzola by S

Mains

  • Uni Pasta with caviar by J
  • Roast Leg of Lamb stuffed with Mint & Parmesan

Dessert

  • Dessert by M possibly involving pears & chocolate
  • Possibly Whisky & Port

Just so that I don’t forget.

It’s fairly Japanese-y in theme because I like the cleanness of the flavors and since it’s simple home-cooking, I can prepare most of the dishes the night before and simply assemble and heat on the day itself.

The Eggplant Gratin is something that I’ve wanted to do for a long time because it involves making Tofu into a sauce, it’s fairly complicated but it should be fun.

The Uni Pasta should be easy to do but I hope it will be well-received since Uni can be iffy and is very expensive. And I do hope there’s leftover Uni because I love Uni-butter toast.

The Roast Lamb is mainly for me and the guys because, well, I like Roast Lamb and I don’t mind having it for the rest of the week as sandwiches.

This will most probably the last time I do the cured Hamachi because I’m bored with it but I’m featuring it here because I have Pescetarians coming over and I’ve not mastered cooking fish yet. I have several new recipes for cured Salmon and Mackerel I want to try out.

Almost forgot to add: I finally broke down and bought my first set of Noritake China mainly because someone is asking me to upgrade from my cheap but very good Ikea tableware and there was a sale. So first use will be for this Sunday lunch. 🙂
