Eric and I loved our tasting at Craigie, so mom and I decided to go for my post-defense celebration. And then when he surprised me at my defense, it turned into a meal for three!
Cocktails for the evening
Course 1 - little bites of raw fish.
Course 2 - more sashimi
Course 3 - asparagus and pea puree
Course 4 - scallops. I can't even. I could eat all the scallops, all the time.
Course 5 - Giant fish.
Course 6 - pasta with mushrooms and cheese
Course 7 - transcendent lamb.
Course 8 - granita
Dessert - first wild strawberries, cookies, and white asparagus milkshake (yes; it was odd)
Dessert - rich chocolate mousse and wonderful ice cream with cookie bits
Dessert - pavlova with strawberries and more ice cream. Rough life.
After dinner drinks - tea, sherry, and something fancy.
Such a great place to celebrate!
