I've been cooking a few relatively adventurous things for dinner parties recently, heavily utilising my sous vide, espuma gun, thermomix, ice cream machine etc etc, to do some elegant dishes that have impressed my friends. I have a group coming for dinner in their late teens, who have been begging for me to cook for them for a while. As usual I'm browsing my cookbooks and the internet, as well as chatting with my local suppliers, to see which recipes and menu plan works best (I'm a big fan of an amuse bouche, starter, main, dessert, and petit fours sort of style menu). What I'd really like, given the 18 year old mindset, is to do something a bit more fun and engaging, at least for one of the courses. I remember, for example, watching Heston on TV serve a squid dish, suspended over a bowl of smoking hay with a tiny pin prick allowing the smoke through - added to the whole experience. I suppose I could do that old stalwart of 'assemble your chicken fajita yourself' but I'm hoping with the power of ChefTalk, we might be able to come up with something less ordinary! Who's got any ideas?
