"My Valentine" Progression of the Menu

I've been thinking about this menu for about 2 months at this point..what ingredients I'm going to use, how heavy or light the menu is going to be, what the visual presentation will be and how easy or difficult it will be to produce these dishes in very unconventional places...Once I have a general idea and theme for the menu, I start to break each course down in to specifics and try to let let creative process be guided by words that I would hope the dish can be described by..For example a rich and sensual dessert might be described by the word"velvet". Every chef has his or her own method and mine is probably a little weird, but it's what I do! What I have post above is round 5 of development, the final product will be up soon! Stay tuned!
