I mentioned in my post of Antwerpen Proeft that I got my hands on a flyer from La Chapelle. Who knew that a chance to win a table for two at the opening of La Chapelle would get me so excited that I would have multiple dishes for the winning ticket (I can only hope it is a winning ticket).
(please don’t notice the finger prints, I should have wiped it off a bit more)
In the past few weeks I have baked, roasted, poached and boiled to get to my final entry picture. And here it is…
Roasted baby artichokes, slow roasted pork belly with asparagus and a raspberry tart.
I had a really difficult time deciding on the dish(es) to make. I also made a green tea poached salmon (sadly the pictures for these are really not presentable) and a beet ravioli filled with goats cheese and sage.
While I love the ravioli I just did not like the way the end picture presented next to the raspberry tart and decided I needed a different dish as my main course. Honestly it was not so horrible to have to make another favorite like pork belly.
It goes with out saying that a table at the opening would be awesome, but win or loose I have eaten my way through many of my favorite dishes which is always a win for me.
