When eleven isn't enough

As the opportunity arose to cook once more at the Great Western Casa McBardo, greglor's first response was:

"Let's try to cook more dishes than last time!"

Last time, we served eleven dishes in a tapas style roll out, impromptu. This time we were a bit more organized, as having a whiteboard written menu be a guiding game plan. The dinner was divided into a series of "courses", each one rolling out in turn.

#1 As people arrived, we started out with pieces of pah-jeon - Korean scallion pancake. Actually, pahjeon is pretty straightforward, and malleable to different regional interpretations. The version we made came from egg, a bit of flour, cold water, salt, cayenne pepper, and a lot of chopped scallions. The pancake was cut into rustic serving pieces, and served with a dipping sauce prepared from raw garlic, soy, vinegar, sesame oil, chili powder, and a pinch of sugar.

That is just the beginning.
