Dinner Parties at the Office Junction
Private Chef Antoinette caters healthy, mostly organic food (no junk) to different families in West Seattle. She does dinner parties in her beautiful backyard during summer and cooks in private homes all year. For her winter residence she tries out the Office Junction. Our nice open kitchen provides everything a nice private dinner party should offer without all the work for the host. Our space is bright, nice and clean and Antoinette plans your menu, goes shopping, preps, cooks and serves. She even picks the perfect wine pairing for her dishes.
Sunday Night we had a couple of things to celebrate and invited Antoinette to cook for us. Antoinette planned an all gluten free 3 course dinner for us.
We started out the night with a glass of bubbly. Chatting and watching an amazing sunset over Puget Sound in the big window over California Ave. As we settled for our first course, we were served a bed of hand picked greens with 2 nice sized goat cheese and rice cakes. The cakes were crisp, fluffy and had a perfect brown crust and our prosecco went perfect with it.
We chatted a little more about life, odd hobbies and favorite books while watching the sky turn from purple to dark blue.
We were served a nice mango curry with rice and shrimps. It has some fire to it and was nicely paired with a Chenin Blanc & Viognier balancing the spicy dish with the sweet in the wine.
Kelly shared a little about her work life organizing Open Space or Unconference Conferences and the set of basic roles that come with it.
1) The people who come are the best people who could have come.
2) Whatever happens is the only thing that could have happened.
3) It starts when it starts.
4) It's over when it's over.
5) The Law of Two Feet meaning if you are not learning or contributing to a talk or presentation or discussion it is your responsibility to find somewhere where you can contribute or learn.
We then went on to a wonderful chocolate torte with pumpkin creme. It was rich and yummy.
Stefan shared a little bit about his weekend working through "7 Habits" in a yurt and having a weekend of parties. Antoinette told us about her experience as private chef and healthy school lunches and we ended the wonderful evening at 8.30 pm.
