I'm not very familiar with fancy dining, but a lot of that stuff sounds good. It makes me hungry just from reading it.

Just to put this into context; You, a professional chef, are essentially asking a forum full of people who, for the most part, probably don't partake in anything more sophisticated food-wise than Wendy's, whether or not a menu created by you, a professional chef, sounds alright. No offense intended or anything, but that's like Giorgio Armani ringing me up to ask me to give his latest collection the once over.

In that respect, I am not qualified to give you a suitable answer. I'm sure that as far as sous chef menu's go, it's alright.

ouch my pride lol, no thats not what i was getting at all i like this forum people give actual answers and dont kiss my butt here like they do at work cause they have to *fist shake* but no thanks for your post maxx i said be mean if ya have to :D

I like the sound of the dessert.

05-09-2008, 05:49 PM
sounds good, I wouldn't mind trying all of it, 'cept I'm poor ;-;

05-09-2008, 05:50 PM
I am with Max on this one. I am a person who would look at that menu and then start to think "Why the hell am I here?" Nothing on that menus looks good to me but then again, I don't go out to fine dining at all. I like simple things and I don't see simple in that menu XP

some of those things aren't THAT fancy, if you know French :p

Pomme Frites = French fries :p or, Chips, for you British goers.

05-09-2008, 09:15 PM
If you know french....I don't. French restaurants are too fancy for the likes of me and my American ways xD Also I don't drink wine at all. Wine with every course is fancy to me. Hell...a course is fancy to me XD I usually get 1 plate full of stuff that I have extra of for the next day xD

05-09-2008, 10:10 PM
and yes, i already knew what creme fraiche was -_-

no one asked you. :)

Third course sounds amazing. I'd love to try it.

I agree with Maxx that it is odd you keep making these types of threads on a Final Fantasy message board. If you'd like to get some really honest and good feedback on this sort of thing, head over to Chowhound (http://www.chowhound.com/). They may be a little brutal if you ask for their honest opinion, but everyone there is a foodie and they'll let you know if your menu sounds like something they would want to eat or not.

not ecverything is about final fantasy on here i mean there are threads about phschology music, nasa even im looking for feed back i joined this forum for the kind of people not what i do for a living i like the people on here and enjoy thier feedback, im not mad about what yall say its ok to me, but dont act like this is a FF only place i do like what everyone has said and the food isnt that fancy if you really read the food, its like breaking down a pasta i could say garilc confit, which would be roasted garlic with olive oil, i know not everyone knows the terms i got alot of help on my last menu from here and wanted to share this next one with everyone because i loved it, all you have to do is ask i will tell you what things are but thank you everyone for your kind words i didnt here anything bad except why am i posting this lol, which makes it a win for me thank you
