Bastille Day Dinner

To celebrate Bastille Day with a few friends, we hosted our own Bastille Day French Dinner:



We each chose a few dishes to cook, and even though there were only 6 of us, we had enough food/dishes for at least 20...



We started with French champagne (Veuve Clicquot & Louis Roederer), foie gras (hubby & I bought this in Paris some time ago) & shellfish Pâté , followed by Shallot Tarte Tartin:



After a delectable soupe a l'oignon au fromage (french onion soup), we had a fabulous Steak Tartare..



One of my dishes was a Garlic Chilli Prawn dish:



After polishing Chicken with 40 Clove Garlic, Double Baked Cheese Souffle, Ratatouille and Salted Cod & Silverbeet Au Gratin, we finished our meal with a delicious Crème Brûlée:



Love seeing all the little black dots from the Vanilla Bean.



Bon Appétit!
