Fete Bourgogne

Chanterelles
Plating
The Puff Pastry
The MeatThe Wines
The Chef!

Photos from the Fete Bourgogne we attended Saturday night at Max's (please- someone give this man a grant to start a restaurant- he is a true artist with food) and Cheryl's home.

We all contributed a little to the meal (T. & I brought cheeses and a ginormous pomegranate from our tree, Gian & Sandra bread & a salad, Hadley and Thomas- cheesecake made with quark from a German recipe that belonged to Thomas' Grandmother and a rhubarb compote).

Max's amazing cooking & wine pairing from his carefully curated wine collection resulted in one of the best meals of my life. A beautiful autumn evening spent in the company of good friends. What could be better?
