5-Course Tasting Menu

Salad, cheese & bread in ParisAs Chef Anne puts it: “This is my favorite way to eat and thus has become one of my favorite cooking endeavors.”

It’s five small plates delivered in a European-style format that extends dinner for an evening event.

Each course is plated and served along with Chef Anne interjecting “the story” of the plate and its ingredients.

It’s common to travel the world through one of these menus!
