Last Friday, Jan. 17th and Saturday, Jan. 18th, The Club hosted our annual Chef’s Table Events and continued to wow our members. Executive Chef, Josh Harris, shared his talents with an intimate group of 16 guests each evening by creating a 8 course menu staying true to our locally grown produce and sourced meats. By converting our kitchen into an interactive dining environment, our members were given an up close and personal dining experience allowing them to see the preparation of their meals. Chef Harris celebrated 2014’s hottest culinary trends by preparing Pan Roasted Arctic Char served with house-made Fettuccine, rock shrimp, smoked cream, shaved Parmesan and pea shoot salad; Roasted Beet and Parsnip Soup served with Parmesan palmier and crisp smoked bacon; Sliced Ohio Strip Steak served with deconstructed A1 sauce; House-made Ice Cream Sundae Bar (table side).
There wasn’t a single hesitation in the room when guests were welcomed to become involved in the interactive dessert. Guests reminisced on childhood memories and candy favorites as they browsed the 24 variety sundae toppings. The Club’s kitchen staff was able to enjoy in the evening as they prepared a separate serving of each course for themselves. Open table conversation flowed freely as questions like, “Chef, how did you come up with this dish?” and Club member stories bounced from one table to the next. It was a night of families and colleagues coming together for both our staff and guests. Twin sisters, Lauren and Kaitlyn Meng, mingled and served the event as brothers Tony and Casey Fancelli cooked with the kitchen staff. Long time member of The Club, Marion Fisher, celebrated with 7 of her close family members and member Randy Laipply introduced new friends to their first Club dining experience.
It was an evening of new trends, new friends and new memories, but most importantly it was a fantastic meal shared between The Club’s staff and our members. We thank everyone who came out and made this night such a success and like always, can’t wait for the next opportunity to do it again!
