November 2017 Chef’s Dinner
Camembert aged 20 days in Normandy cider, served wit caramelized onion-pork cracklin’ brioche
The November 2017 version of our Chef’s Dinner took place last Wednesday and welcomed a sold out crowd to the back room at Café Presse. The theme for the dinner was Tout est bon dans le cochon (every part of the pig is good) and the menu for the event was designed to highlight the different possibilities in taste, texture and experience possible using the humble hog. We hope everyone who attended enjoyed the experience.
Here are a few photos of the different dishes for your enjoyment…and look for info about upcoming chef dinners on this blog or on the Café Presse website!
