Menu No. 8 by Brian Voll

Menu No. 8 by Brian Voll


The eighth cookbooklet in a series dedicated to dinner party menus. Each book contains a set of recipes for what could be a lovely party, including planning and pairing notes. Focusing on maximizing flavor while minimizing waste, the aim is to use ingredients that might otherwise be scrapped: corn goes into one recipe, the cob into another; shrimp for one, shells for another.

A cool-weather dinner, Menu No 8 begins with a pumpkin soup. Shrimp Mozambique, a Portuguese classic, is the main; paired with cornbread it’s ostensibly shrimp and grits. To finish: boozy soufflé with cream.

No worries if you pick and choose the recipes that speak to you; they’re all wonderful and can stand on their own.
