Hi Allan, I would LOVE to cook this meal for you, your wife, kids and family/guests. I am your guy. Actually, my wife is Mexican, we were married in Oaxaca (Mexican capital of mole), and I am a michelin-trained chef with a passion for Mexican food, so I would love to provide an elevated Mexican dinner for your wife.

This is what I propose:

Appetizers (two different ceviches):

White Fish Ceviche (whatever is appropriate and freshest at the market)
cilantro-lime "leche de tigre", coconut milk, avocado, heirloom tomato, fried leeks

Asian Fusion Yellow Fin Tuna Ceviche
avocado, watermelon, sesame dashi-soy marinade, black quinoa pop

Main Course (choose chicken or beef, or I would even do both if you want)

Pollo con Dos Moles
chicken breast marinated 48-hours in special herb rub

Carne con Dos Moles
sous-vide perfect beef tenderloin roast
cooked to desired doneness, seared to perfection

Mole options (choose two):

Mole Oaxaqueño
7 different dry peppers - very spicy

Mole Poblano
chocolate & dry peppers - mild

Mole Negro
black chillies and pasilla - spicy

Mole Verde
green chillies and jalapeños

Mole Pipián
pumpkin seeds - mild

Mole Blanco
a blend of pine nuts and other nuts - mild


Sides: refried beans, guacamole and rice.

Dessert (choose one)

Valhrona Chocolate Chipotle Soufflé (my recommendation)
crème anglaise, mixed berries, raspberry coulis

Mascarpone Cheesecake
touch of lemon, pistachios, raspberry coulis

Warm Apple Tart
vanilla ice cream

Madagascar Vanilla Crème Brulée
Other Infomation

Allan, please note I don't have fotos of the mole, but I think the examples below serve as good examples of my plating. Please hit the message button with any questions. I can also make a couple of versions of the guacamole if you'd like. A traditional one, and maybe one with mint and pomegranate which is also delicious. Please check out my profile and reviews for more info!

One last note. I am scheduled to work that day. If you could let me know in the next week if you'd like to hire me, I will have plenty of time to look for a sub. We closer we get to the date it will be harder. No rush and no pressure, but just so you're aware. Thanks!
