Keeping with the musical theme of the blog, “outro” is the ending of a song. And this particular song has ended.
It feels good to be done, however then I get a lot of questions such as “now what”? This will be my time to take a break, like when a band finishes an album.
I was reminded how busy last spring was, when I went for lunch at The Red Room. I know I have mentioned this before, but this is a really great place to check out. Collin College’s Culinary program offers a required class called A la Carte. It is one of the last classes taken and it is either set up as a dinner service or a lunch service. Last year, for me, it was a dinner service. This spring it is a lunch service. Last week was french service. This means that food is served and sometimes finished table side.
This was a set menu for $12. We started with a crostini “salad”.
Then we were served a butternutsquash soup.
Next was our entree sliced and served tableside. I had the eggplant. It was excellent.
Lastly, for dessert, we has chocolate dipped orange madeleines served with a french roast coffee, whipped cream and shaved chocolate.
It was great to see a lot of the students I had classes with now taking their turn in The Red Room. It’s nerve racking, exhausting, fun and creative. If you have the time on a Thursday afternoon for lunch I recommend checking it out. I made standing reservations for the semester. Maybe I’ll see you there, or let me know and come join me!
