Once again, our incredible younger generation came through with flying colors! The 9th annual Valentine Dinner Fundraiser was a wonderful evening and culinary experience. Emma created a great four-course menu, and the team of Shannon, Harrison, Joey and Sofie spent hours on the project. They each have super skills, from chopping and sauteing and zizzing and mixing to serving, washing and moral support.
We started with a Pamplemousse Apertif, which accompanied the appetizer course of Chorizo-stuffed Bacon-Wrapped Dates, Roasted Red Pepper Dip with Crackers, Chickpea Fritters with Tzatziki, Grilled Red Curry Lime Orzo and Red Grapes. This was followed by a Strawberry Poppy Seed Salad and Baguette. The main course was Chicken Marsala, Caramelized Gnocchi with Onions, and Sauteed Zucchini. Dessert consisted of Horta Eggs (Maple, Bittersweet and Mocha), served beside a Black Pepper Raspberry Sorbet with Prosecco. After dinner, we relaxed together over coffee and conversation.
Yes, it was just as marvelous as it sounds. Plus, the event raised almost one hundred dollars for our club. Thanks once again to these incredibly talented hosts for an evening to remember.
