Dinner #32 - Cold Winter Night with Some Comfort Food

For this dinner we were able to bring some very close friends as well as some strangers. The night was full of a very fun conversation and incredible comfort food.

The now famous croquetas with wild boar and fontina cheese. This was our second run with the croquetas and mastered the recipe. Later we replaced the wild boar with panceta, so good.

To add to the comfort food, I was able to create a personal favorite,  pasta ai frutti di mare. With a little added arrabbiata spice, just to heat up the night.
Another favorite, pumpkin creme brulee.
A lot of smiles, always the best sign for an amazing night! Oh and congratulations to Alonso and Alex on their recent engagement! 


  1. Your food looks amazing, and I'm just flat out jealous of the varied groupings you put together. Sometimes, it just seems like life becomes monotonous, but you guys are clearly keeping it very interesting.

    Out of curiosity, have you ever considered doing an all-vegetarian meal? Alas, I am one and can't bring myself to eat meat, seafood, or poultry.

  2. We do veggie dinners all the time! We even cater to mixed dinners in case there are any vegetarians in the mix.
