Operation Wedding: 2 Caviars

When my brother suggested serving white chocolate and caviar, it sounded like a brilliant idea. He said he had it in a restaurant in London (I think it was the Fat Duck) and it was simple but an excellent match. Hence, since he is my greatest and most honest critic after my mother about my food, I scribbled that down in the list of potential dishes for the dinner party. I then decided that it would be really nice to have a contrasting dish against the stark black on white, by having a white on black dish next to it. I however got distracted while reading Thomas Keller’s French Laundry and decided to use his eggplant caviar idea and to serve two caviars instead.

Post Mortem: Unfortunately, they looked better than they tasted. My eggplant caviar's taste was lost on the cracker and the white chocolate was too thick and the caviar was not salty enough. (well I was cheap and didn't invest in a good tin of caviar and so now I might have to waste more money throwing it away) Back to the cooking drawing board it is for me.
