Be Our Guest!


We interrupt this program to bring you a non-dumpling post about a worthy cause.

Yesterday I made Asian-Fusion Dinner for Ten–a special auction dinner for TIBA foundation:

It was totally fun to come up with the menu and plan and execute the dinner!  Kudos to my wait staff and board members Gail & Arne, and to my amazing kitchen crew Jenn & Susan.

now, put on your French accent, channel your inner Lumiere, and say with me–

“It is with deepest pride and greatest pleasure that we welcome you tonight. And now, we invite you to relax, let us pull up a chair, as the dining room proudly presents… your dinner!”
