shortlist no. 18 / december 4, 2010

December 8, 2010

A truly cooperative affair, this dinner (and shortlist). The tasks were split pretty evenly between my mother (appetizers), my husband (first course), my father (meat course and sides) and myself (fish course and dessert).

And while there were certainly lots of cooks sticking their fingers in the pot, the result was nothing short of harmonious.
