Dessert Is Served

Finally, after a couple of days working out the entree and dessert for the assignment I have basically worked it out. Following is dessert: 1. Creme Brulee with Sesame Seed Wafers
2. Pavlova 3. Baked Apples with Cloves in a Pastry Gown
4. Cherry Clafoutis 5. Dark Chocolate Cheesecake, Blood
Orange and Cointreau Compote (pictured from my class - the blob on the side is curled chocolate)
6. Black Forest Gateau 7. Sticky Date Pudding

The idea is to do 7 entrees, 7 main meals and 7 desserts for
this assignment, cost them and pretend we have a Restaurant ... I can now appreciate the time and effort going into making up a menu, making it sound appetizing and the layout of it all - down to the font!

I know this is all in the wrong order but I thought starting off with main meals followed by a dessert and then trying to fit entrees in.

So ... here are the offerings for entree:
1. Minestrone Soup 2. Tempura of Vegetables and Prawns 3. Mini Spring Rolls with Sweet Chilli Dipping Sauce 4. Citrus Salad with Baby Spinach 5. Peperonata and Goat's Cheese Tart 6. Calamari with Chilli Salt 7. Grandfather's Master Soy Stock Poached Chicken Salad. Now ... back to the drawing board.
