The event was planned as a fund raiser for the expenses incurred by the competition team to go for the gold medal - first at the state level and then in the nationals
here is the menu:
and the food -
but among the extra treats we were granted was access to the prep area for some demos of how some of our ingredients were prepared - including in order below - two shots of- cracker making; the season like a chef station where you could try your hand at seasoning bechamel sauce; the tuile making station; and a place for foaming carrots- LOL. There was also a spot for the veggie carving and the mousseline preparation!
out in front- we had lovely table settings with place cards and flowers from Don Newcomb's garden:
the team shown below- delightful evening!
the event raised 4,000 for the support of the competition team- which was not even halfway to the total amount they need to compete- but I am sure this talented group will find a way to get the rest of the 10,000 raised. GOOD LUCK! LCBC Competition Team...GO FOR THE GOLD!
