We have not had a blog post in a few weeks because we have all been working with our noses to the grindstone to put up lesson content and to get ready for our first, BIG, LIVE, Web Event and today is the day!
We had some prep and practice yesterday but are excited for the real thing later this afternoon when we will be on the FoodiesLive webcast at 03.30 PM PST with tips on Grilling Summer Seafood.
The menu is:
Seafood Sausage with dill & celery seed and Beef, Chicken & Pork Sausage with Fennel and “Beeten” Mediterranean Yogurt Sauce.
2. Appetizer: – Grilled Shrimp & Grilled Oyster
Grilled Shrimp marinated in Salt, Pepper, Light Olive Oil, Orange, and Parsley & Grilled Oyster paired with Grilled Zucchini.
3. Salad: – Grilled Radicchio Salad

4. Entree: – Dry Rubbed Grilled Duck Breast
Duck Breast Dry Rubbed with a Chili Blueberry Salt then Grilled and served on a bed of Water Cress and dressed with a Honey-Lime & Pink Peppercorn Dressing.
5. Main Course: – Grilled Seafood Platter

6. Dessert: – Grilled Fruit Salad
Grilled Pineapple, Grilled Watermelon, Grilled Strawberry marinated in Orange Juice, Triple Sec & Banana Cream Liqueur with a honey yogurt sauce painted on the plate.
The emphasis is on Grilling, so some items are a little over the top in “grillishness” but everything was tasty in practice and as practice makes perfect, they should be even better LIVE!. It should be a lot of fun. We hope you join us and our gracious hosts FoodiesLive and our sponsor LocalDines today at 03.30 PM PST at http://foodieslive.com/watch-live/ . If you are one of the lucky winners from Local Dines, we will see you there.
