Sunday 4/12

12 Apr

Happy Eastover!  While Passover > Easter, when it comes to food, Easter > Passover.  Easter may actually be the best season for chocolates: chocolate bunnies, Peeps, Cadbury eggs, jelly beans, Easter eggs full of candy, so many delicious candies.

Today I went to the most incredible Easter brunch ever with K who as in town with her parents.  I really heart her parents.  We went to the Modern, and in the spirit of spring and Easter, I wore my Sunday dress (ie, black tube dress) and pink sandals in 30-degree NYC weather.  April is still the cruellest month.

The four-course brunch was everything I’d ever dreamed of from watching seasons and seasons of Top Chef:

  • Wine and champagne
  • Amuse-bouche: cucumber pate in a salmon sauce with salmon roe
  • Appetizer: lobster salad
  • Fish dish: seared scallops
  • Meat dish: lamb
  • Dessert: chocolate mousse

AND!  At the end we got these huge white chocolate eggs splashed with glittery colors — it was the most beautiful thing I’d ever seen, and when you cracked it open, it gave birth to delicious almonds covered in chocolate and then covered in powdered sugar.

JC, thanks for ressurecting on this day and giving us the gift of delicious chocolate bunnies and eggs, lamb, wine, and a metaphorical storyline for Lost.
