Thanks to the ease and speed of Facebook, sometimes I forget to update major milestones at the blog level. I already have an app that feeds twitter into FB, now if they could just port my FB into full blog posts I would be set - no such iPhone app? Oh well. I guess I will have to just do a summary pic presentation :)
DUK #6 - "Dady Underground Kitchen"
Chef Jason Dady has been one of my local favorite chefs for years. My first taste of his food was at the Lodge on a dinner date, followed by my obsession with Grilled Chevre and the wine list at Bin 555. Tre Trattoria was an instant hit with us thanks to the Nutella x3. Two Bros BBQ and the cherry glazed ribs were also yummy, and Restaurant Insignia is our new favorite thanks to multiple occasions of "the perfect steak"
So when I found out I would get a chance to have Chef Jason Dady come to my home and prepare a multi course meal for 10 - I was a little giddy to say the least :)
Summary of events: Had more friends than 10, so the guest list was heart wrenching. I am counting on future DUK dates to make sure everyone gets to experience how great this is. Per instruction, made the wine assignments with my own twist - 10 bottles (2 matching per couple), all 90+ point. My guests did not disappoint. It was not only a blissful night of food, but also the wine was pretty amazing.
10 good friends, 10 bottles of great wine, 1 amazing Chef and his assistant Josh = Foodie Heaven
