Lobster bisque, Beef Stroganoff crepes, & creme br

I've seen that the cuisines of Italy, Mexico, North America, and Spain have been well represented here, but I haven't seen anything from France or Russia.

So, I thought I'd give them their 15 minutes of fame by combining some of their food. I made lobster bisque and creme brulee in the house, but made Beef Stroganoff crepes on the Egg.

First, I made the crepes

Then, the Stroganoff

I thought a light bodied Beaujolais would go well with the heavier stroganoff. It did.

The whole setting.

Creme Brulee for dessert.

  • Santana, those are truly beautiful pictures of your dinner. I hope some BIG Food magazine recognizes your beatiful food phography, but in the meantime, I am moving next door to you so I might get to taste something, one day. You had me at the bisque.

  • Those crepes look really good, how'd you heat the pan on the egg?
  • SantanaSantana Posts: 58
    Yep, just an unincorporated area. Actually, I had to move to the big city. I took everything with me but my heart.
  • SantanaSantana Posts: 58
    Thank you Faith. If you move next door, I'll even cut your lawn for you. :cheer:

    Thanks, E.S. The crepe pan is sitting on the grid. I put the Spider down first, so as to bring the grid up so I could get to the handle easily. Just direct cooking with the fire about 400°.

  • You are the first person I have seen on the forum that has cooked crepes on the egg. Very original.

    Thanks for offering to mow my lawn.

    Thank you so much, Miss Molly.

    I tried cooking them directly on the grid at first, but it became apparent that I needed a pan. :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: Just kidding.

    Santana, everything looks great, the food, the photography, the setting, very nice style all around, Marc
  • SantanaSantana Posts: 58
    Thanks Zippy. My wife helps me with the plating. I'd probably put everything in styrofoam. :laugh:
