Mother's Day Brunch Menu

Our latest Chocolate Tasting Dinner was last night, and the 50 people we sat all seemed to have a great time. Ben took some lovely photos of the event, food prep, and completed platings, and I will be posting them here in a few days over which everyone can drool. In the mean time, I wanted to take this chance to announce the complete menu for the next dinner on Mother's Day. The final line-up is $35 a person and includes:

White Chocolate-Citrus Sparklers
Dark Chocolate Chip Waffle with Maple Syrup and Honeyed Creme Fraiche
Cocoa nib-Corn Bread with Red-eye Gravy
Quail Eggs Benedict with Chile-burnt Caramel Hollendaise
Azteca Buttermilk Cinnamon Roll with White Chocolate-Cream Cheese Frosting

And for all of you meat-lovers out there, we have an optional farm-house meat platter as a starter. After all, what's brunch without the pork? It's an additional $14 and features:

Chocolate-rubbed Bacon & Cocoa Nib-Sage Sausage
If interested, I would act soon. Seatings are available on Saturday AND Sunday of Mom's Day weekend at 9am, 11am, and 1pm, though the Sunday 1pm seating is already sold out!

Sounds great! I'm gonna show this to the family and get some feedback. Chocolate-rubbed Bacon really sounds like fun.

On a side note, thanks for the amazing tasting platter this afternoon! I haven't had such nice treats in a long time. Swing by my blog for the pictures I took today!

I'm so glad you enjoyed it! I have a lot of fun coming up with new collections for the dessert platter every eight weeks. Keeps me on the seat of my pants! I'm still working out the details on the chocolate-bacon concept, but at the moment I'm working on a cocoa-rubbed thick-cut bacon that's roasted and then partially dipped in milk chocolate. Should be pretty darn rich.
