OK, I have two reservations left for the dinner described below, and I'm offering them for the low, low price of $100 for two. At the risk of sounding car-salesman-ish, this is really an incredicble bargain: a wine tasting, a fabulous dinner prepared in front of you in a professional kitchen...not to mention three hours of entertainment!
I have reservations for LAcademie de Cuisines professional culinary schools annual holiday wine dinner this Friday night (in Gaithersberg). Unfortunately, my father is having health problems, so weve suddenly cancelled plans. That leaves me with two reservations left at $75 eachwhich I have prepaidand the cancellation period for the dinner has long passed. This should be a terrific dinnerprepared by LAcademie students and instructors, these wine dinners are one of the best culinary bargains and best experiences around. There will be a wine tasting before dinner, followed by an extravagant four-course dinner, served in the kitchen as diners watch. A different wine is served with each course, and a wine expert is on hand to talk about the pairing. LAcademie founder Francois Dinot will prepare the dinner and talk to diners about each course. The menu is poached oysters with leeks and caviar, chesnut soup with foie gras flan, roast goose breast with the leg confit in a red currant sauce, followed by a margoline, a French dessert cake. Please email me at email@example.com if youre interested. BTW, the LAcademie catalogue lists this dinner as being on Sat., Nov. 22 with a price of $85. However, the date and price were changed. New date is Friday, Nov. 21, and the price is $75 each.
