    no, we have to come up with our own menus. i had some other ideas but this turned out to be the best one. my main and dessert are good as fuck too.

    im doing roast quail stuffed with sultana, pistachio, and truffle farce accompanied by chateau potatoes, glazed baby carrots, and a cognac/sultana jus.

    for dessert im doing coffee bavarois with a kahlua creme anglaise and chocolate shavings served with beignet souffles with strawberries and a chantilly cream. ill put down the recipe and steps tomorrow. im sure none of you (apart from possibly are2) will actually give a fuck or attempt this shit but itll help me out on my exam and maybe give someone a boner.....
