I’ve said it before, recently in fact, that there’s just something about opening your home to share food, or “break bread“, that truly warms the cockles of my heart. Last night, H.K. and I hosted a cooking demonstration at our home.  We had about 22 people, several of them arrived at our house as strangers, but left our home as friends. 

The restaurant that was generous enough to demo their fare was Atlanta’s Peasant Bistro, owned by Maureen Kalmanson.  Chef Russell Hays cooked up a menu to die for, including Peasant’s famous French onion soup, a Belgian endive salad, Kurabuto pork loin w/ grits, topped off w/ lemon poppy seed cake and elderberry ice cream. OMG!!YUM!!  Different wines were paired with each course, supplied (most generously and liberally) by Highland Wine and Crystal.  AHHHHHH.

With the economy as it is, each of these establishment is offering up specials that are easy on the wallet and easier, still, on the taste buds. Please check them out and look at the specials offered.  You won’t be sorry!

And to our friends, old and new,  that enjoyed the food and fun with us, Bon Appetit, Y’all!
