............tasting notes


we had a few bottles of wine to savor with the meal

Signature Hot Cheese Soufflé with Crackers
this is a favorite - starting off every meal at the restaurant and a signature dish that goes way back.  my cousin loves it!

Traditional Roasted Thanksgiving Turkey
can't say too much about their meats - since I am a vegetarian
but they always pick the choicest cuts, the most tender meats, this turkey is no exception, cooked to perfection - Gene wishes there was enough for sandwiches tomorrow - but, like any culinary art - portion control is paramount - leave you wanting more - not stingy/ not gluttonous - just the right balance!

with Black Truffle Madeira Gravy 
their sauces, gravies, and dressings are the real star of the show

Sausage Apple Bread Stuffing
great - the only question we have is - can we have this again next year?

Potato and Leek Gratine

not smothered in cream - really delicate and delightful!

Sweet Corn and Chili Pudding

Raw Cranberry Orange Relish

accented with orange - exclamation point - to the meal!

Maple Roasted Brussels Sprouts
they make it easy to eat your brussel sprouts.

Green Beans Almandine

 - cooked to perfection - crunchy and tasty

Honey Baked Acorn Squash

Gene thought it was a yam - rich and earthy - one of my favorite veggies - winter squash

Spinach Salad, Pecans, Apple, Caramelized Red Onion Cranberry Vinaigrette
the lettuce is usually picked from their signature garden run by Roberta - a tart cranberry dressing.  Nice way to start or end your meal.  I like to start my meals with a salad.

Dessert Tasting: Pumpkin Pie Cheesecake Apple Strudel Walnut Tart Bourbon-Vanilla Ice Cream Cinnamon Anglaise

Fresh Banana Bread, for Tomorrow's Breakfast
