I enjoyed preparing this cuisine and so excited on the result of its taste. It turned out to be exactly as expected! The menu is quite similar to the above image and tastes so delightful even to my friends. I also like “Blackberry Pork Tenderloin” and “Fried beef fillet with morel mushrooms and Venice balsam” that I've searched at and You may also take a glance at those sites for more exciting recipes. Enjoy!! - 16 Jan 2012
