50th Birthday Celebration

September 14, 2008 | Menus, Wine

We celebrated our friends’ joint 50th birthdays tonight with a special Asian dinner menu and everything turned out fabulously, if I do say so myself! the place settings you see above are from Pier 1, and the Asian symbol for longevity was perfect for a birthday bash.

Here’s the menu – call me if you need details on any dish!

in Wonton Cups

Pork and Shrimp Potstickers
with Teriyaki Dipping Sauce Laurent Perrier Champagne

Mixed Greens with Ginger Dressing, Radishes, and Toasted Almonds Miso-Soy Glazed Black Cod

with Edamame, Mango, Pepper and Onion Relish
(this is just the relish, which was really good…)Christian, Barossa, South Australia, Chenin Blanc, 2005

but trust me, it was tasty!]

Stir Fried Sugar Snap Peas and Bok Choy
