Our residency batch decided this year’s annual holiday dinner would be different

… so we decided it would be in one of our homes

The menu was set a few weeks before

Appetizer:
The group’s favorite salad from Cyma

We love this salad because of the fresh greens and how all the ingredients come together to create a light and refreshing starter

this luxurious pie spread on the crunchy croutons was a perfect partner to the delicious salad

but the main attraction of the night was

French Lechon from Pepita’s Kitchen

the truffle rice stuffed lechon de leche was so delicious!

Just cutting into the crunchy skin, allowing the aroma of the truffle rice escape, was already heaven…so you could just imagine how satisfying it was to our palates…

the initial crunch from the skin that gives way to the thin layer of velvety fat and soft meat ending in the creamy aromatic rice

…I may have found the most delicious version of my favorite dish!

Dinner ended with refreshing fruits
