    I did a 7 course meal last week for some of my wife's colleagues. Unfortunately I'm missing two photos - chilled avocado soup which I served with the crab and lemon shortbread with fresh whipped cream and berries.

    The duck looks amazing, other than that I've never had anything else. Looks good and professional too!

    What, no vegetarian option? I'll have the salmon followed by the steak, please. :)

    not on this occasion. i once did a 10 course meal for 10 people - one was a vegetarian and one was a vegan. that was kind of a pain as i had to prepare 18 different dishes. it was funny though, at the end of the meal, the vegetarian, who hadn't had red meat for over 10 years) was eating everything i prepared. :)

    The seared scallop looks like real professional job. The others aren't my thing, but that one looks well done.

    Great to see you take food prep seriously!

    Looks Delicious - !

    Most of my culinary skills involve dropping a Ramen "noodle-brick" into a pot of boiling water & waiting 5 minutes. Though I DO make a mean Chicken Parmesan.

    *not that I'm complaining* :)

    Everything looks wonderful. It's like an amateur Iron Chef presentation. As I'm learning to cook right now, I really admire those dishes. The presentation is amazing as well.

    If the meal tasted as good as it looked, and didn't have you running for the Pepto or a toilet ... congrats. :p

    i know this was tongue in cheek, but you'd be surprised how much food that actually is. beyond that, i served a wine pairing with each dish. these guests were all men and they were content with the portions. if they were still hungry, i would have thrown in a couple of frozen pizzas. :D

    Wow, that's a beautiful presentation, looks all really good. I'm really jealous of the guests!

    Glad you knew I was kidding. Sometimes sarcasm can be so hard to convey through text!

    Though I'd pass on the salmon. YEEECK!

    Fantastic job. I'd happily eat all of that, as it all looks fantastic.
