Vegan Italian Valentine feast

February 13, 2010

Here’s a peek at the dinner I made for my Valentine…

Spaghetti with vodka marinara sauce (which I will remake and blog about at some point), steamed broccoli, from-scratch garlic flatbread, and a Piemonte Barbera red wine. Pretty perfect.

Hannah Kaminsky (a.k.a. Bittersweet)’s famous Mocha Devastation Cake. Absolute fattiest and most caloric thing I have ever made in my life. Needless to say, it was a hit.

Mocha Devastation Cake = two layers of dense chocolate cake sandwiching a rich coffee buttercream frosting, enrobed in a thick dark chocolate ganache and ringed with crushed chocolate-covered espresso beans. Life is good.

Happy V-Day, everyone!

    That is a fabulously appetizing dinner. The spaghetti is making my mouth water, the color on the plate is perfect and the flat bread sounds wonderful.

    OMG, the special dessert looks devilishly rich. What a lucky Valentine you have!

    Hannah—I’m honored that you paid my blog a visit! Your cake was worth every calorie :]

    Rachel—I wish you could’ve tried this cake. In a month or two I’ll make it again and make sure you get some!

    Kati—I’ve been trying my hand at yeast breads lately with exciting (for me) results! I’ll be posting a really good one on here in the next couple weeks.

    Cheryl—”Devilishly rich” is very accurate. We’re still in a bit of a cake coma (in a good way).
