Sweet, fresh and tender flavors mix it up with rich herb and mushroom tones. This dinner features my personal favorite appetizer: Olaiya's morel and asparagus melange served with a light cream sauce atop locally baked artisanal bread. I can't wait!

rack of lamb with fresh herbs and garlic
spring vegetable sautee
washington state rosé

strawberry rhubarb tartlets with buttermilk ice cream

Fondue Dinner in the Books

The first guests arrive and enjoy a traditional cherry cocktail

Olaiya prepared sumptuous platters of fine things to dip in cheese

Stringing the molten cheese across the table was just part of the fun!

We enjoyed a delicate riesling with our feast

And, as always, we finished with a delicious flourish!
