I was hoping you guys can help me plan my menu for a multi-course white-themed meal. The food must be white but I can't think of any...suggestions? thanks
Wow, this is the kind of thing that I try to avoid!
Appetizer: Carr's water crackers with chevre
Soup: leek and potato, either hot or cold
Main dish and sides: Fish, rice, and cauliflower.
Fruit/cheese: Peeled granny smith apples with white cheddar cheese (from New England)
Dessert: Apple Snow
Hope this helps,
Appetizer: White bean bruschetta with ricaotta salata, I think Chiarello has a recipe
Soup: White Gazpacho or anjou and parsnip soup
Main: Coconut Poached fish with coconut rice, or maybe poached chicken with fresh fetuccine, add a poached egg maybe? Maybe turnip puree, or risotto topped with white truffles (or oil)
Side: Jicama, turnip, and endive salad or braised daikons
Cheese: Manchego with Marcona Almonds. Or any sharp Italian with Peeled Bartlett pear
Dessert: Ricotta and Mascarpone Cheesecake is what I have in mind, crustless. Or maybe just a really nice white cake, or a coconut cake.
vichysoisse --or--pear/pecorino ravioli
shaved fennel salad
seared scallops over celery root puree with braised leeks
roasted white asparagus
endive spears with goat cheese and almonds
as an aside... any monochromatic meal rarely works. eating begins with the eyes.
