Mom made a great dinner last night for Sharon, Fabien, Shilpa, Antonio, Demetrio and myself. Here is the side table as it started to get filled up with fresh spring rolls, various sauces and wine.
Deme is an expert at table settings. It's probably from all his years working in the restaurant business as well as waiting tables when he was a young man in Rome and London.
My favorite meals are those in which there are lots of Chinese and Vietnamese herbs and garnishes. My sisters' old boyfriend used to ask her why she was "putting a forest in her soup."
This is one of my favorite dishes of all time, poached chicken served with a ginger and green onion sauce. We also had fried wontons, Vietnamese shrimp soup and fresh spring rolls. For dessert we had one of my favorite desserts, plantain bananas cooked in coconut milk with tapioca pearls.
