Chef Dinner

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.

    PS I wish my dad still had a mustache because he looked just like Mario and the boys would have loved that!
