Reef's 7 Course Italian Meal


Recommended Posts

It's actually 9 courses but I combined a couple courses so it's served as a 7 course meal. It was supposed to be 10 courses but in the middle of all this I forgot to cook one of the courses - oops B) by that time I was 1/2 a bottle of Prosecco down and well that's my excuse and I'm sticking with it - LOL. 

 

I used this guide for a full course Italian meal:

Here’s all my ingredients pictures.

I do appreciate you cleaning the massive mess I made as this meal moved along.  A great meal for sure.

@skreef(We no longer have Olive Garden restaurants in Ontario)  Thats why Olive Garden chairs have wheels, to roll you out the the parking lot because you can’t walk...

 

@ckreef  At our house, a 7 course Italian would be 6 glasses of prosecco and a bowl of “sgetti”....  LOL

 

Nicely done!

I'm good with your kind of full course meal.

 

Counting that way mine was closer to a 15 course meal. Mrs skreef drank half a glass. I drank the rest of the bottle............

Thanks everyone. I took my time and me and Mrs skreef had a nice relaxing meal. Once I got serving the meal it probably lasted 90 minutes. Although some parts were prepped and ready ahead of time some was cooked as we went along. 

 

I plan on doing more Sunday afternoon full course meals in the future. If I'm not worried about money shots it would be even more relaxing.
