Gangster Style Dinner Party

An Italian-American theme, inspired by the fact that it was Martin Scorsese's birthday - it was too early for Christmas, and gone past Halloween... so we had to think of something...
I only made the dessert, but enjoyed the sumptuousness of the whole menu.

Starter: Fig, soft cheese, chive and tomato wrapped in Parma ham

Main: Italian chicken with olives, served with green beans (and a slice of Spanish tortilla...)

Dessert: New York Baked Cheesecake with blueberries

Only one slice left...

Much mmming at this.
