Last night the Culinary Institute held a dinner for their student chefs to showcase what they have learned and we were lucky enough to go along to it. We've never been to anything like this before, so didn't really know what to expect, but it was the most wonderful night.
This was the menu
I forgot to take a photo of the first course, but from then on in I remembered - and I'm so glad, because it all looked so beautiful - and the taste was amazing.
There are some very talented chefs in the making, here.
It's funny because, as it was a tasting menu, the courses are fairly small and it's very deceptive! You think after the first three courses you're not that full but by the end of the meal I think we were all ready to explode! We got several dishes of beautiful petit fours with coffee and we could barely manage to taste one! I noticed we weren't the only table unable to eat anymore, because there was a lot of surreptitious and not so surreptitious wrapping of truffely delights in napkins to be smuggled home for later - wish I'd thought of that!
