I had the idea to put these recipes together because of a dining experience I had at Recipe: A Neighborhood Kitchen. My lovely boyfriend and I went to Newberg, Oregon (wine country) to celebrate our 1 year anniversary. During our stay we went to the restaurant I mentioned above, to say that it was impeccable would be an understatement. The food, service, and quality were so so amazing...which unfortunately is not something I experience often and I live in Portland, Oregon which is a foodie town! Anyway I ordered pan-seared scallops with potato risotto and an apple citrus slaw. Since the meal was so amazing I decided to try and replicate it for Father's Day. Here is a link to the original recipe from Bon Appetit Below is the scallop recipe, the citrus fennel slaw and the potato risotto will be my next two posts.
