Everyone Wants A Frenchman In Their Kitchen

You know you do. Our very own French native (American citizen, thank you very much) Chef Nico Romo recently put together an incredible 50th birthday dinner at a private home here in Charleston. The 5-course dinner for 13 included: butternut squash soup, a duo foie gras, (au torchon and pan seared, if you must know) sweet potato puree and five spice pecan, pan seared red snapper with coconut curry sauce, seabean asparagus, red pepper and fried noodles; pan seared filet with caramel sauce, roasted pumpkin and haricot vert and finally, a dessert trio of passion crème brulee, bread pudding and chocolate banana tart. The equally amazing wine pairings included: Blandy’s Madeira Vintage 1870, Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2005, Penfolds “Grange” Hermitage 1994, Chateau d’ Yquem Sauterne 1994 and Dow Port Vintage 1957. The happy and very full guests had nothing but raves for the food and fine service. In-home catering...sounds like a lovely holiday gift, no? We'll even put a big red bow on him. Okay, Nico?
