Mama bid on a special event for a charity at work. She won us an in-home chef dinner donated by Executive Chef George from McCormick & Schmick’s.
Last night Chef George arrived and was greeted at the door by Doodles.
Doodles: “You have a mustache!”
Chef George: “Yes, I’ve had it since I was 15. I knew it was a bad sign that I was probably not going to grow much more if I had a full mustache already.”
Doodles: “You’re a mustache chef!”
(Sometimes the blog writes itself. I just have to report the dialogue.)
George had trained under Emeril Lagasse in New Orleans. He created a seafood odyssey at our home last night for us and two other couples. We had scallops with curry, macadamia nut encrusted halibut, salmon with brie and spaetzel and 5 bottles of wine. It was fantastic. He even brought the plates so we had few dishes to wash.
If you get a chance to have a mustache chef come to your house, go for it.
