Friday's dinner.

Close friend/fraternity brother had a recent birthday and I really wanted to make him a nice dinner.

I love eating in November I'm craving the richer stuff and I like what is in season. I've always had my best meals this month.

First course: seared scallops, house-cured and smoked bacon, cauliflower, savory apple butter glaze, and celeriac puree. Served with a 2014 Martinelli Wild Thyme Vineyard Pinot.

Second course: braised Meadow Farms (Allegheny County) lamb shoulder, cippolini onion risotto, pan roasted baby carrots and Shannondale Farms (Keswick) mushrooms. Served with a 2006 Ucceliera Brunello di Montalcino.

Dessert: Four Roses Single Barrel bread pudding, espresso-banana sauce, vanilla ice cream.

Ms Chef and the guest of honor thought the scallop dish was special. I was really happy with the way it turned out.
