66. Prepare a grand, seven-course meal for close friends
Updated August 17, 2009
I was inspired in high school by my French class. We learned about a typical French dinner, the many course, the way it took hours, and I wanted to replicate the experience.
In a sorely misguided attempt at doing so, I planned out a complete ooh-la-la French menu and planned to serve it to two close friends in the middle of the night while my parents were out of town. Well, typical teen-age dramas prevailed, and most of the meal was prepared, but none of it was ever eaten.
Still, I’d love to try it again. Amuse bouche, apperetifs, a cheese course, and creme caramel for desert. Who would walk away from a meal like that? I’m sure I’d have no trouble finding friends to invite.
