I love winning something, especially if it involves food as a prize….although Powerball would be great to win as well.
The reason that I am talking about winning is because my husband and I had a spectacular time last night at a Valentine’s Day dinner that we won from eatdrinkri.
Before I share all about our meal, I am going to give you a feast for the eyes as I share images of The Cafe at Easy Entertaining Inc. located in Providence, Rhode Island. I describe the decor as shabby chic meets industrial.
Now onto the food: There was a set Valentine’s Day Dinner Menu (they are not normally open evenings except for special events, tastings etc) with a choice for an appetizer, entree and dessert.
For our starters, we chose the Winter Greens Salad and the Parsnip Soup (not shown) followed by a palate cleanser of mango sorbet.
For the entree we had Grilled Chicken Breast with Onion & Fig compote, Gorgonzola Mashed Potatoes with Baby Brussels and the Slow Braised Short Ribs over Risotto. Drooling yet?
Then came dessert and let me tell you this: this as the best bread pudding I have ever tasted! The bourbon sauce reminded me of the creme anglaise that my paternal Grandma made and guess what I did? I used my finger to wipe the plate clean. Yes I did and I have no guilt about it my friends.
The desserts were, as noted above, Bread Pudding with Bourbon Cream Sauce as well as a Warm Brownie with Strawberry Reduction.
