Culinary Safari task force meets again!

The planning continues!

Today Jon Smolin one of the Chief Architects of the safari came by my office to finalize plans for our culinary adventure.  We conferenced Jake Rosennberg in since he couldn’t join us in person.

To recap… roughly 10 of us are hitting the town for a progressive dinning experience.  8 courses, 8 different restaurants, 1 night!

We had to lock down the dish AND it’s important that the locations are in the same vicinity so we don’t BURN ourselves out.  We’re keeping it West Side.

  1. Apps
  2. Amuse Boche
  3. Meze
  4. Soup
  5. Pasta
  6. Entrée
  7. Dessert
  8. Nightcap

Apps: Kick off the event shooting back oysters.  With all the great vitamins provided by the Oyster we’re gonna need the extra energy!

Jonathan Swift once said, “He was a bold man that first ate an oyster”.  Great point, Mr. Swift!

Desired Destination:

Amuse Boche: “to amuse the palette”.  One bite that just says everything!

Desired Destination:

Meze: Mediterranean style apps that are bursting with flavor. Think Toubuli, Hummos, pita bread, etc…

Desired Destination:

Soup: Looking for best ever for this time of year

Desired Destination:

  • Elmo: Roasted Tomato Soup w/ a wedge of grilled cheese in the center (this just screams coming in from the yard after jumping in a pile of leaves!
  • Cafeteria (Plan B)

Pasta: A pasta course could be the dark horse if chosen wisely!

Desired Destination:

Entree: The Main Event

Desserts: A classic course to refresh the palette.

Desired Destination:

Nightcap: A time to reflect, sit back and relax!

Desired Destination:

This has the makings of a Legendary Adventure and November 19th is slated for DAY OF!
