Today I hosted a dinner party for the first time ever. Not only that, but two of the guests were complete strangers and also OUR COMPETITION.
My friends and I are doing a scavenger hunt/contest centered around the SF Street Food Festival. One of our challenges: invite our competition to dinner. We had to google/facebook/twitter-stalk to find them (no last names provided). Then we had to solve a riddle to come up with our secret ingredient and make a dish using that.
Ingredient: peach! Dish: caramelized peaches with Būcheron, arugula, and a peach gastrique. I am not much of a cook, so I was a little intimidated by the peach gastrique but it turned out to be pretty easy and pretty tasty!
