Super Mario-Themed Dinner

Most times, Thrillest sends me e-mails for things that are just a bit too bro-ey for my tastes. Once in a while, however, things like video game-themed events make my heart flutter (being a tomboy and all, it’s bound to happen). So imagine what a treat it was for me to open my e-mail today to this:


A course-by-course breakdown:
Princess Toadstool Salad: Beets and herbed goat cheese rep the Princess, who’s topped with Champagne vinaigrette and hazelnuts, but thankfully doesn’t get taken away from you every time you get near it.
Luigi Linguini: This Mario Bros 3-inspired dish drops with garlic-white-wine-sauced shellfish (scallops, butter poached prawns, clams, mussels) atop a bowl of spinach linguini meant to represent Mario’s greener, skinnier brother, something you’ll never be if you keep eating like this.
Pepper-crusted Bowser Filet: This boss-sized steak’s topped w/ mushroom-y “Goombario” sauce, Yoshi-colored broccolini, and a pomme puree inspired by the bright yellow of Mario’s invincibility star, so expect it to look pretty flashy.
Tanooki Tiramisu: Just like his Raccoon persona (Tanooki!), this similarly colored dessert is best after hitting some super leaf.


Now, to find seven well-to-do friends with the same enthusiasm for food and Super Mario as yours truly…
