Channeling Top Chef, Iron Chef & Chopped Talents

The other night my friend asked for my help. He needed to cook dinner for some special friends of his. He bought everything he wanted to cook, but needed help in compiling a menu. He had lamb chops, scallops, chicken breast, pork loin, fingerling potatos, Italian sausage, haricot verts, baby zucchini and the necessary cooking items like onions, garlic, salt, pepper, other seasonings, and shelves full of gourmet condiments.

So this is the menu we came up with:

Dijon crusted lamb chops

Proscuitto wrapped chicken breasts w/ black garlic on a bed of haricot verts

Baby zucchini sauteed in garlic and olive oil

Butifarro di patatas (Italian sausage with onions and fingerling potatoes)

Roasted pork loin w/ a port reduction sauce

Seared Shallops w/ crab butter

And we did all of this in an hour - Iron Chef move aside!
