While visiting the grand dogs is always a highlight of any trip I take, we also were treated to a fantastic holiday dinner at Rivercreek Country Club on the Potomac.
For Tennessee, the chef whipped up moonshine martinis!
The liquor soaked, strong olive. It was pretty tasty, but almost made my head spin.
Usually, I'm not a fan of rare beef, but this was beyond amazing. It was cooked sous-vide and perfectly done.
And I don't think I've ever had a dessert this good. The disc thing on the bottom? I have no idea what it was made of, but when I bit into it, the thing disappeared into an explosion of flavor. Really, it disappeared. Like eating some sort of tasty ghost. But it was more like powder, not like cotton candy, although a similar principle. Delicious air.
It was all just perfect. So good that, looking at these pictures has made me sad about dinner tonight, and I had been looking forward to homemade pot pies in the oven before I started thinking about this meal. It was quite a special treat.
Top Chef style dream food and a great night. I even made it through the evening without snorting after imbibing the moonshine.
