This is my first menu based on the colour of a food. It seemed appropriate that this Saturday's midnight feast should be comprised of black food which, it is claimed by Japanese scientists, is very good for you.
Everybody will be coming in nightwear, the evening will start at 11.30pm and go on till we drop...
Projected Menu for the Midnight Feast
Black olive tapenade and black cod's roe on black bread
Black sesame salmon balls with black vinegar
Seaweed handrolls stuffed with black rice and aubergine with ponzu dipping sauce
Squid ink ravioli stuffed with goats cheese with a trompette de mort mushroom and cream sauce
with black Himalayan salt and Black pepper
Blackcurrant coulis/liquorice icecream
Expresso with dark chocolates
All of this is of course subject to being able to get hold of the ingredients, the hostesses whims, what dishes work in the practice run ect ect
