Accademia Della Danza 2013

Greetings post a wonderful event.

This year I found myself a bit behind the 8 ball due to life, so planning took a back seat for a bit then it was a rush job. Despite the rush though things turned out well, for the most part.

The menu:

Salad and Garlic soup with toast
Turkey/ 2 sauces and Genovese Gattafura
Stuffed Kohlrabi and Rice Fritters
Apples in jelly

Most things were fine, the largest problem was tha the jelly didn't set up for the apples, I will have to play with this more. The other "problem" was over cooking the kohlrabi none of this was too terrible but it certainly wasn't ideal.

Well received were the rice fritters, I think that is the dish I heard poeple talk about the most. The sauces too seemed to be a big hit.

The largest trouble seemed to be how allergies and food restrictions were handles at the serving of feast. It seems that not all of everyone got the extra dishes that were made. This will actually be a seperate post in itself that I will make later. I just wanted to note it here.

I will post my full "Post Mortem" later on.


  1. I look forward to the recipe for the stuffed kohlrabi! That's a vegetable I discovered late in life, but Joel and I both really like it. We never get it often, though, since we don't know what to do with it. Stuffing it sounds tasty.

  2. This was actually the first time I've ever had kohlrabi and I loved it! I ate all the pieces left on my table's serving dish.
