Help with "baby" themed dinner--NOT a baby shower
My cooking club’s next dinner theme is “baby.” It’s not a baby shower but rather the cooking topic for a group of serious foodies. It's a bit tongue in cheek. Help me come up with a dish.
I’ve thought of something like lamb with baby artichokes and baby turnips, but that seems obvious. I’m looking for a more creative and interesting idea.
Fin fish okay, but not other sea food. Balut is not on the table (but is the right way to be thinking).
I immediately thought of baby spinach, baby artichokes, baby carrots, but you beat me to that.
How about an excellent "baby food" creation, like a terrific take on apple sauce, or mashed peas or something? Or serve cocktails in a baby bottle?
Deviled quail eggs? Baked fingerling potatoes? And when I say baked, I mean baked. Split open with butter, sour cream, etc.
Shrimp? I mean, that's a bad pun, but still... :-)
Caesar salad with baby romaine leaves...
Veal, of course.
Roast chicken breast stuffed with roast quail;
sirloin pounded flat, rolled with pounded veal;
aged cheddar cheeseball with center of cream cheese/farmers cheese.
(ETA: or stuff chicken breast with egg rather than quail)
