Not feeling inspired by your usual dishes? Here's what's for dinner.
Some people believe you can tell your future by looking at tea leaves. We can do that, too: We see platters of Chinese tea-cured salmon and Earl Grey-infused chocolate mousse on your dinner table tonight. Give your mug the night off and redefine "tea party" by making tea leaves the star of your meal.
① Drink: Trade Route
The American South meets South Asia in this refreshing aperitif, which combines sweet tea with Indian flavors. Can't find Genever? Swap in gin in its place.
② Main Course: Lapsang Souchong-Cured Salmon
Sidestep the long prep time by poaching the salmon; you don't have to let it cure the full eight hours, since it will get cooked during poaching. Instead, just use the tea cure as a type of herbal marinade.
③ Dessert: Dark Chocolate Mousse with Earl Grey
Rather than having tea with dessert, have it in dessert—tea-infused cream gives this staple dessert a grown-up twist. You can even watch Michel Richart (and his charming French accent) make it himself before you get started.
