Worth Tasting….The Culinary Walking Tour of New Haven
Saturday, April 28 the weather was perfect for the first culinary walking tour of 2012. The tour served as the midway meeting place for two of the guests who came from Princeton New Jersey and Boston Massachusetts. One participant was delighted that she was able to do some shopping for unique birthday gifts at some of the stops. It was a fun group who were into the culinary scene of New Haven.
The next tour is June 9. For tickets, please call 203-777-8550 or 203-415-3519
The tour makes a great gift for birthdays, anniversaries and other special occasions.
Watching the ball come down….. Welcome 2012
Robin Vuillermet, c0-owner of Union League and “yours truly”
Famous chef and author Jacques Pepin was among the guests
The balloom at Union League Cafe in New Haven was recreated into an evening in Paris. The 1920’s period dress of the staff and many of the guests added to the ambiance.
The lively band got the guests dancing and swinging.
The three course menu included dishes such as Flan de foie gras homardine (Hudson River duck foie gras custard, lobster bisque), Filet de boeuf a la Wellington (beef tenderloin in savory crust, mushrooms and winter truffle ragout, pommes Anna), and Omelette Norvegienne (Baked Alaska, vanilla bean ice cream and raspberry sorbet, light vanilla meringue)
