Louise and Peter felt it would be more intimate and comfortable to celebrate their 40th anniversary in the comforts of their own beautiful home.  They invited Cuisine and Company to help them create a beautiful menu and experience.

Menu highlights

Chocolate port braised shortrib stuffed mushroom

Lobster Bisque Veloute, sherry and saffron, Langoustine Crouton finish (deep fried Langustine)

Chef Rick telling Chef Marilyn bad jokes

Deep fried artichokes with fresh lemon and orange zest plus asian spices

Thai marinated, seared sliced then grilled Rack of Lamb

Celery Root, Yukon Gold and sauteed leek

Chinese long beans and baby bok choy in sesame lime dressing, fresh ginger and jalapeno

Note from Louise and Peter…..

Hi Marilyn,

I just wanted to say that the dinner last night was OUTSTANDING – couldn’t have been more perfect. In every way, from the atmosphere, to the presentation, to the quality of the food, you made our little dinner celebration into something special. Despite Rick always getting in the way, you managed get everything done without a hitch. It’s pretty obvious that both of you love what you do and have fun doing it.
While I generally just don’t like people, any people and all people (maybe it’s the other way around) – they get in the way and sometimes even disagree with me –  I feel like we’ve made a couple of new friends. That means I now have a total of two, and two that can COOK!
Thanks again,
