What Would You Serve at Your Masters Champions Dinner?

116 posts in this topic

I thought this might be fun…

I'd serve:

  • Steak of some kind (porterhouse, perhaps)
  • Cajun-style scallops
  • Mashed potatoes (with some skins and a little cheese mixed in)
  • Green beans
  • Corn
  • Some basic wine from North East, PA where I grew up (that's a town name, not a compass direction)
  • Chocolate peanut butter pie and/or ice cream with a cherry on top.

Just missed the cut:

  • Deep dish Chicago style pizza
  • Pierogies
  • Bacon cheeseburgers and/or bacon/cheese/grilled chicken breast sandwiches
  • Fruit salad
  • Cherry Coke Zero
  • Guinness
  • Baked potato

hmm off the top of my head

scallops - either by themselves or in a dish such as a fish soup

some sort of weird dish that would blow peoples minds, probably with offal in it or some sort of foul/game

rack of lamb with dauphinoise potatoes, some sort of jus on the side

tarte tatin

cheese

all with accompanying wines, prob some bubbles to start, NZ Pinot Noir with the lamb and some sort of sticky with the desert, port potentially with the cheese.  Little amuse buches in between courses too.

Just off the top of my head:[LIST] [*] Caesar salad. [*] Fish chowder, New England style. [*] Steak - probably grass-fed filet mignon and NY strip. Topped with sautéed onions and mushrooms. [*] Whole roasted chicken. [*] Mashed potatoes, though I'd insist they use potato ricers to mash them. [*] Crusty French bread on the side. [*] Assorted grilled vegetables - onions, peppers, asparagus, zucchini, etc. [*] Key lime pie for dessert. [/LIST] ...Or I'd just have Chipotle cater.

I'd keep it pretty simple and go with surf and turf.  A nice filet and Maine lobster tail with baked potato and asparagus.  For dessert, chocolate mousse.  I do enjoy a nice wild mushroom gnocchi or risotto, but I think those may add too much richness to the dinner to have on the menu.

Obviously, the bib would have to be Augusta Green. You know, to be classy.

Oh my......what a great thread!

Let's go with:

-  Fresh, warm baguettes with warm brie, foie gras and escargot.

-  Chopped salad with blue cheese, smoked bacon and avocado

-  Diner's choice: Rack of Lamb or Roast Duck

-  Wild mushroom risotto

-  Butter poached baby carrots

-  2007 Chateau Montelena Cabernet

-  Diner's choice:  Chocolate or Grand Marnier souffle

-  Fresh raspberries and cream

-  Espresso/coffee

-  23 year old Pappy Van Winkle Family Reserve Bourbon on the veranda afterward.

edited to add:  Calling @Ernest Jones !

I like the votes for Foie Gras, so I'd start with pan seared foie gras drizzled with a porto reduction and some crushed pistachios.

Cilantro Shrimp cakes served with a homemade sweet and sour sauce

Grapefruit Granita (similar to sorbet but from Italy) to cleanse the palate.

The main would be:

My wife's Blue Cheese Crusted NY Strip-loins

Potatoes Dauphinoise

Asparagus pan fried in brown butter and flour de sel and finished with the juice of a clementine or tangerine.

Wine: A vintage Pomerol

Dessert: Home made Creme Brulée

Veranda:

A wide variety of Single Malts and a handful of Cognacs for those (poor souls) who don't like scotch.
