Project: Gobblefest November 2012

Date: Thursday, November 15, 2012 Time: 7:30 p.m Number of guests: 13 pax Location: Bandar Utama

Hosted a Thanksgiving dinner of sorts over Awal Muharram holiday.  I figured Thanksgiving would be a perfect theme to try out different dishes using ingredients associated with the Fall, and I also wanted to challenge myself and see if I could pull this off.  Truth be told, without the help of my two awesome sous chefs – my mom and Kak’mbang – I probably would have dropped dead and my guests would have to settle for a few dishes short.  But in the end, all is well, and I managed to stick the last dish (dessert) into the oven as guests started appearing at the door.

All of my dishes based on recipes from Emeril’s Potluck.
