… let YOU decide which one you would like to see me make? Let me know what looks good to you and why in the comment section below.
As for which menu will I cook on the show, I can’t make any promises since ultimately the decision will be made by the producer, but I’m sure she would be as interested as I am to hear your thoughts. Here are my top contenders….
SPECIAL OCCASION MENU PLAN:
Roasted Mixed Vegetables
Horseradish Mashed Potatoes
Seared Duck Breast with Cherry-Pomegranate Sauce
Stir-Fried Cabbage, Carrots, Peppers & Mushrooms
Cinnamon Rice Blend Pilaf
Apricot-Pecan Stuffed Roast Pork Loin with Apricot Sauce
Maple Glaze Brussels Sprouts & Pancetta Hash
Smashed Carrots Tinged with Orange & Herbs
