Have you ever been the guest of the chef in the kitchen at a fine dining restaurant? Until this night, neither had we. It was the treat of a lifetime!
"Wear something cool. It gets really hot in the kitchen", they told us.
I chose a high low black top and slim leg black pants from Chico's with earrings from Stein Mart, very old beaded copper evening shoes and a bag from T.J.Maxx.
Gourmet & Company is celebrating 25 years in business.
On this evening they opened their kitchen to me and Mr. Mickey for the evening. A special table was set up in an area where we could watch Chef Jacob and his team create the magic on our plates.
Below is Todd, the most awesome bar manager ever! We have been visiting with him for more than eight years and he is always charming and professional. His ability to pair the best wine with your food is always spot on.
Below is Chef Jacob. He is an amazingly talented chef but he also has a keen eye for business and has taught his staff to "be" him. It was like watching a dance performance as they quickly prepared seventy-five fabulous meals on this evening.
Chef Jacob prepared each of our seven courses and Todd paired each with the perfect wine to complement the flavors.
This pasta dish was one of the best entrees ever!
The Sockeye Salmon was also perfect.
The sweet corn pudding was a delightful dessert course.
The team in action at the busiest time.
Jason, Jacob, Mr. Mickey and I, John and Chance
Our splendid menu for the evening.
Thank you Chef Jacob and Gourmet & Company for an evening we will never forget.
I am so glad you have joined us for our excellent adventures during this journey through midlife and beyond. The second fifty years are the best!
