An Elegant Dinner Party at my Home

This past Tuesday evening, I hosted a dinner party at my home for some business clients.  It was a relatively small affair with the table set for ten.  Since I was at work all day long, I arranged for my friend, Chef Pierre Schaedelin, to share his expertise in my kitchen.  Together, we came up with a perfect autumn menu.  The first course was a saffron risotto with porcini and chanterelle mushrooms.  That was followed by seared lamb chops with celeriac purée, wilted spinach, and baby carrots.  The dessert course was apple tarte tatin with quince sorbet.  It was an evening of good company and great food!
