New Year's Eve menu for Two

Sumac-dusted jumbo lump crabcakes with caramelized shallot and orange juice reduction

Salt-grilled, shell-on jumbo shrimp with terrace thyme

Escarole and mandarin salad with pomegranate vinaigrette

Crepes with Grand Marnier and orange zest sauce, all aflame

(...and thinking very fondly of jvdh and arcadia, who ate their snoek and chips in Cape Town tonight, together. Lekker slaap, julle. Môre is nog 'n dag.)


  1. Happy year's end, Dear Marie! Have a lovely, lovely evening with all. xx00

  2. Oh, how sophisticated that menu sounds! Especially to someone who had leftover chicken soup and Christmas pudding for dinner.... (and the soup was made from leftover chicken in tarragon cream). Nice enough, but not sophisticated, oh no.

    Happy New Year to you and the cat, from me and mine. See you next year.

  3. Oh, Marie....just lovely

    Wishing you a peaceful and happy NEW YEAR....

  4. mean you're not gonna be partying it up with the masses in Time Square?! ;) Ryan Seacrest will be bitterly disappointed.

  5. Happy New Year Marie and Vince .. and of course, "the cat" ....

  6. Happy New Year to everyone! The menu was exquisite and the masses safely out of reach.

  7. jou postscript het my pas in trane gehad. baie dankie.

    (en so jammer ons kon jul nie gesien kry; ons doen dit gewis 'n volgende keer)
