Sweet Seventeen

Kayla, our oldest grandchild, wanted a fancy dress-up dinner to celebrate her 17th birthday. Chef-trained son Stephan offered to prepare and serve a special meal for his neice and her three VIP guests. We are hardly acquainted with the level of sophistication he provided. It was a learning experience for all of us and especially the young ladies at the birthday table.
Most family members were helping produce and present the elegant courses.









Lovely Karen, chef's wife, and Mike in the kitchen.

We started with a Tableside Caesar Salad followed by an Entree of Peanut encrusted Balantine of Chicken, Swirled Yams and Mashed Potatoes, Carmelized Onions and Peppers, and Glazed Carrots, then followed that with a Lemon Sherbet on an ice plate for a palette cleanser and finished with Strawberry Lattes Tableside.
