Last week, without leaving home, I had a 5-star meal… and it was so easy to prepare.
I began with the Lobster and Corn Chowder. Sublime is the best way to describe it. I’m a Boston “girl” and as such, I’m very discriminating about my lobster. It was indeed tender (as described) and sweet. I have found that Lobster Chowder can often be cloying, from too much butter and cream, and the lobster rubbery from over cooking, but dcuisine’s Lobster and Corn Chowder hit the perfect pitch.
After my First Course, I had the Medeterranian Shrimp with Chickpeas entrée. The shrimp were delicious, very fresh and firm, and while I would never have thought to add chickpeas to a shrimp recipe, it worked very well. Rather than chopped oregano, I topped off the dish with a small sprinkling of dried Chile Pequin, which imparted a slightly smoky taste.
I accompanied my dcuisine dinner with a simple kale salad, dressed with lemon and olive oil, and per the suggestion on the website, a glass of chilled French Provence Blanc. (I love the wine pairings included on the website.)
My compliments to the chef! I can’t wait to try the Beef Bourguignon. - Melissa Millay
