A young 35 year old man, Kevin , is the owner of a restaurant in Quincy. He is the master chef and an extraordinary human being. He reminds me of a little puppy dog, innocent and cute. He usually has elaborate events on the holidays. I.e. Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, and so on and so forth. The Main Course is one of the finer establishments here, and Kevin has been doing a great work of handling the stress of managing the place with ease and great efficacy. He does French and Italian cuisine as a routine, and though I have not been there for dinner ever, I have heard raving reviews of the cuisine that he has provided.
Last month he and I got together, and decided to do an Indian dinner~ a five course meal. I have cooked for a lot of people, but for a hundred people? I’ve done that only once a year when we have the Fund Raiser Dinner for the Islamic Center. And then I only make one or two dishes. The rest of the group makes other dishes.
However, I did take the challenge, and agreed to do that. We decided on the menu and I started going to the restaurant to feel the kitchen out and how I can do my things without getting in the way of the crew there. Until yesterday afternoon, I was quite nervous and didn’t know if it will be boo-hoo flop.
Last night was the gala event. There were two seating and each seating was packed to capacity. I should have known. Kevin was a master. He orchestrated the serving of food most elegantly. Here are the pictures to prove what I am saying.
I had gone there in the morning and prepared the kababs including a few vegetarian dishes, and had them ready.
Here are some pictures from last night. Hope wordpress will be able to get them on this site.
Sorry, I am not able to load the pictures here. If you can access my Xanga site, you can see the pictures there. I don’t know why I cannot do that here, add the pictures I mean. If any one has a suggestion on how to do that, please let me know.
I kept trying to figure out how to add pictures to my post and voila! I finally got it.
Here are some of the photos from that night.
This first picture shows the appetizers.
The second course was the soup with the naan. Since it was a very cold evening, the soup was not only a little spicy but also hot temperature-wise.
The third course was the Chicken Shami kabab with a side salad of beets, and apple and fried lentils. It had a drizzle of mango sauce on the kabab.
Here is Kevin adding the sauce to the Shami and a zoomed view of the salad.
The main entrée was the beef Biryani with vegetables and chutney to the side.
And finally the dessert. This was MY best part I think. I love Khulfi with strawberries.
I am so excited that I figured out how to upload the pictures. Yay!
