A while back, shortly after I met them, they volunteered to put on a dinner at their house for friends, cook some amazing food, and charge for it, to help Triabetes, and my fundraising efforts.
I was touched that they wanted to do that, and agreed to even donate all of the food and much of the wine! And.... I am not joking when I say that I had the best meal I've ever had in my life. Here is the menu:
Heirloom tomato puree with fina basil
Celery root soup, chanterelle muschrooms, micro arugula
Dungeness crab friiter, citrus, mango puree, micro cilantro
Maple vanilla glazed tofu, micro cilantro
Range Brothers pork loin, bacon cream, , blistered tomatoes, king trumpet mushroom
King trumpet mushroom and fresh baby corn sautee,cream, candied pecans, blistered tomatoes
Cheese and contrast
Cowgirl creamery Mt. Tam, frog hollow preserves, macrona almonds
Rasberry almond tart, meyer lemon curd
As you can imagine, it was delicious!! I am so appreciative of their efforts, touched by the generosity of them, and all of those that attended, and more committed than ever to continue to work to support the work that Triabetes and we are doing.
They are even up for hosting another one early next year!!
