Super Bowl 2010

We don’t exactly do your typical super bowl of chicken wings, pizza and beer. Of course, I had visions of oyster po’boys, but it was a momentary fantasy. Our super bowl “fest” for 4 of had a decidedly French feel with the best New York Prime Strip Steaks from Bryan’s Fine Foods aka Flannery steaks.

White wine

Second serving of Gougeres (forgot to take a picture of the first serving)

Foie Gras Pate with Sauterne Gelee ( a cup of sauterne heated, then mixed with Knox gelatin, poured into a small glass dish, covered, chilled to set and then cut into small dice)

Country pate from Bouchon in Beverly Hills – chicken, veal and turkey wrapped in bacon, cornichons and Dijon mustard

Bouchon pate ready to be served

Bread from Bouchon

Some snack food munchies – after all this is the superbowl – at least homemade

First Red Wine

Second Red Wine

Flannery  Steak

Potato Gratin – not yet plated

Caesar Salad (forgot to take the photo – watching the game)

Epoisse cheese was supposed to be served, but forgotten by one of our guests.

A single serving of Persimmon Cookies and Chocolate Chip Cookies

    epoisses , vacherin, and other cheeses were forgotten by me the “guest”. Also, I want to say the steaks are not good. Harvey’s steaks blow these out of the water. If we serve these steaks again I think I will skip xmas

    I firmly disagree re the steaks. David won’t let me season his steak at all – a steak needs seasoning! Even pastry and cookie recipes need salt to bring out the flavor.

      has nothing to do with that..I put peeper and a little salt on mine. I think I am much more of a steak eater than you. THE STEAKS SUCK

    David, we love the steaks. They are our preferred steak on the menu at Chez Lizziee.

    If your personal preference is “Harveys” we can
    accommodate consumer requests.

    Thanks again for your sommelier work. The wine selections were perfect.

    Matt, Flannery steaks are tremendous – they are aged and you MUST season them.
    Glad I made your day!
