I got the Porcini flan, which came with Alaska Live Dungeness Crab and Black Truffle Dashi. OK. It looks kind of ugly but trust me, it's delicious. Porcini is a great mushroom. It's multi-faceted in that you can add it to practically anything. It's gentle enough to add a delicate flavor to a flan or sauce but it's robust enough to uphold its flavor against steak or a full-bodied wine. The Dungeness Crab was succulent and sweet in flavor. It's considered to be sweeter than snow crab and it doesn't have a strong ocean scent. If you want to impress your friends, make them some Dungeness crab. You can get it practically anywhere... even on Amazon. But, of course, I don't really recommend getting it on Amazon.
For my entree, I got the Organic Long Island Duck with Organic Dates and Hudson Valley Hand Milled Polenta. I really liked this one. It was like 15 little flavor bombs. The meat was fresh and pure. The fat practically melted in my mouth. The dates were a great addition because it gave the duck a prominent sweet flavor. To me, dates taste more like honey than berries. I don't know why. Anyways, dates are extremely healthy for you. Actually, they've got all the important vitamins you want in your life. It has Vitamin A for your eyes, Vitamin K for your bones, and Potassium for your blood pressure. They're also high in fiber, which helps flush out the bad bacteria in your system.
Aside from the snide comments and scoffs from the closed-minded, middle-aged woman sitting next to us as we were taking these beautiful food pictures, we enjoyed our meal. Don't look at us with those judgmental eyes! If you have time to ridicule us, you clearly aren't focusing on enjoying your food.
