This morning the suggestion I'd like to give you is about Valentine's dinner. I mean, we could take this occasion to stay close with our parter and have with him/her a special/cute dinner. One of my favorite recipe is flan, all types of flan usually look so small, tender and cute, basically they are delicacies of the food world. I choose this recipe as starter: Prawns and porcini flan. Prawns are quite
6 prawns, peeled
100 gr Porcini Mushrooms
a bit of butter
1 ½ tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
half glass of white wine
1 cloves of garlic (don't worry you don't smell of it and garlic is so aphrodisiac!!)
a bit of parsley
nutmeg, salt and pepper
100 GR grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese
salt and pepper
Bechamel Sauce: Heat up your pre made bechamel with a bit of milk , away from the heat add the grated Parmesan cheese stirring to amalgamate and also salt and pepper.
To prepare the flan: sauté the sliced mushrooms in oil and a nut of butter with a garlic clove, nugmet, salt and pepper. Remove the garlic clove when golden-brown. Mix together the 2 prawns, mushrooms, 3/4 of the sauce, the egg yolk, grated Parmesan cheese, a bunch of parsley and mix everything. Add the whipped white eggs to the mixture.
Put into the cupcake pans and bake in the oven for 10 minutes (180°) till they are cooked. Turn over the flan on the plate and cover with the left bechamel sauce. Embellish with the left praws and some teeny piece of parsey.
