Kitchen Scraps

Whitecap author Pierre Lamielle hosted a humorous illustrated dinner party on Sunday, featuring several dishes from his new humorous illustrated cookbook, Kitchen Scraps. Such as . . .

• Devils on Horseback -- spiced prunes wrapped in bacon

• Whirled Peas -- a minty pea soup

• Snails in the Garden -- an escargot salad

• Triple Threat Risotto -- with arugula and white wine, and made with a Parmesan CHEESE STOCK

• Aphrodite's Hot Greek Goddess Salad -- Greek salad done HOT!

• A great little cheese plate thrown together by Candace, including Valdeón, my new favourite blue cheese

• Half-Baked Pot Brownies -- delicious warm chocolate sludge with whipped cream, paired with Guinness

Thanks to our host and all his helpers!
