DUCKS AND BOARS AND ELK, OH MY!
Wait. But let's just talk about that first image though. Like, just stare at it. ELK GOODNESS IN MY MOUTH. Holy mother of nature.
I was so kindly contacted by Kitchensurfing - a website dedicated to giving you restaurant experience without leaving your home. I just about died when I found out that NOLA-raised Chef Ryan Rondeno was going to come cook for me! I invited over my favorites + my roommate and dined on the most ridiculously delicious grub, including:
Wild Boar, Butternut squash gnocchi, fried poached egg, sage
Spiced Elk, Pumpkin, cipollini onion, Cabernet-Black Currant Reduction
Coconut Panna Cotta, Raspberry-Black pepper sorbet, Passion Fruit
Is your mouth watering yet? Yeah, I know right?
I loved that my friends and I could just chill at the table, watching Chef Ryan cook and playing matchmaker on Tinder and reviewing men on Lulu. Yeah, we did that. I just loved that I could host people at my home and actually engage with them rather than being stuck preparing food, which I don't mind. It was just totally nice to have a break.
Honestly, it's the perfect gift for an anniversary present or a great way to throw a party at your house. I was so, so impressed with Chef Ryan and was so pleased with the experience. And if your totally hands-on, the chefs are totally down to teach you and give you an even better experience which I freaking died for. Now I now how to make gnocchi!
Thank you team Kitchensurfing!
