Teamwork: it's how FD and I cook. He was on the venison & I was on the veggies.
As awesome as this meal was I want to quickly note a few revisions I would make:
Cook reduction a bit longer and the venison a bit shorter. Separate the veggies--to cook, simply stem, add butter and parsley, mint, chives, and basil--from the meat. Roast the potatoes after steaming. Add more rosemary to the venison meat.
What to keep the same: WINE, ingredients, china (Kate Spade Gramercy Park), company (FD, my fav foodie companion for life), and music (Hank Williams: cooking & dinner; The Amps: dish washing.)
* To keep it "everyday" photos are taken with my iPhone. No fancy photography, just quick snapshots, then on to the eating.
