Best Friends in New York


How to do friends in New York? I don’t have a rule for this but, I’m very lucky because I could find some very nice new friends in this huge city. One of the worst things about relocating is leaving behind your network, friends and family, but for going ahead we need to recreate a new life. I moved to New York and I began a new chapter of my life. I moved to this city with exactly zero friends or family members waiting for me. I didn’t worry about loneliness, because I’m lucky and I have my husband as partner in this new challenge. My priorities were first find new ingredients for keeping cooking and secondly should be able to find new friends for share my cook. I chose to do English class to improve my English and also I was sure that I would met some new friends. It was true because I found some nice friends there. We have one thing in common we are foreign!!!! For sharing with my new friends my cook I invited them to have a dinner in my home. The dinner was like United Nations because It was present in this dinner friends from, Spain, Japan, Turkey. Brazil and France. It was amazing!!! For dinner we had.

For cocktail I did some small appetizers like Maki de salmon avec pistachio, Little pate with dry meat and butternut with yogurt sauce, Some Portuguese cod cream, some Brazilian bread cheese, quail eggs with ratatouille and caviar, Carpaccio with pesto, pinholes and balsamic reduced. As the first dish I made avocado roll stuffed with crab, herb salad and guacamole. For the main course we had lamb with vegetables (potatoes, onion comfits, garlic carrots et mini pore) polenta and sauce of lamb. Then we had Roquefort cheese with guava paste and had as dessert Panacota (Italian vanilla cream) with some raspberry sauce, raspberry Macarron and raspberry agar.  All home made did with all my love and passion. The dinner was wonderful, the lamb was softy and very tasty. Everyone face was like shine. My husband and friends were very happy. The next day, everyone writes to say how tasty was the meal.
I’m grateful to move here because, in this movement I found these adorable friends to share my cook. Living in another country opens up a world of opportunity for new bonds, powerful friendships.
