We have just started a new “Scoff Club” idea with Gary’s family where one couple host a dinner at their house for another couple from the immediate family. The hosting couple have to cook a two course meal (either starter and main, or main and dessert) and go all out in making something they haven’t done before. Now since our surname is Meyer, we’ve decided last night was called MeyerChef as it truly was inspired by the series MasterChef.
So we started things off last night by hosting Gary’s parents for dinner. And given my sweet tooth, I was put in charge of making dessert!
Gary made a gastronomic main course! A pesto sauce topped with cheese-infused polenta, stacked with grilled mushrooms and baby carrots, accompanied with a phyllo triangle of chicken and bacon. This was all topped off with a microherb salad.
I must say that my dessert paled in comparison with the feast that Gary put out. I made a chocolate lasagne which included a layer of crushed oreo biscuits, a layer of cream cheese, a layer of chocolate pudding, and finally a layer of cream topped off with chocolate chips.
Here’s to Terry and Anton hosting the next dinner for Ross and Andrea! Will you be able to better us?!
