pre-thanksgiving indian dinner menu

Terry the Firefighter and the MenuManiac
You may remember Terry the Firefighter from his guest post. Last night, we were lucky enough to have his expertise in our new professional kitchen. Luckily Terry the Firefighter, is a professional in more ways than one. Inspired by a recent trip to Vij's in Vancouver, this firefighter came up with the perfect Indian menu. He gives total and complete credit to Vikram Vij.
Ginger-Lemon Drink
Tomato, Coriander and Ginger Soup
Garam Masala-Sauteed Portobello Mushrooms in a Porcini Cream Curry
Marinated Lamb Popsicles with Fenugreek Cream Curry
Terry's tips when cooking from Elegant & Inspired Vij's Indian Cuisine:
  • Even if the recipe instructions go against your instincts, follow Vij's direction. It will not disappoint
  • Take advantage of the wine pairings that are included with each recipe

How groovy we got after this fantastic meal:


  1. Okay, the meal looks fabulous but your dance moves look even more fabulous.

  2. Do you get paid for this stuff!

  3. Can you do a post on your new kitchen? I need to totally replace mine next year would love some ideas.

  4. That looks amazing!!! (and umm.. new professional kitchen - I think we need pictures of that please!)
