Last week we were able to show off not only our chefs, but some beautiful seasonal ingredients when we invited people into our backyard. It’s been a long time coming and we are so happy to share the photos with everyone who joined us. From table decor, to speciality cocktails, to passed hors d’oeuvres, to a 4 course tasting menu, elle cuisine pulled out all the stops for this extravagant evening. Thanks so Chairman Mills who provided the rentals for the evening, as well as Auchentoshan Whisky for being our Alcohol Sponsor for our signature cocktail. Thanks to Marc’s Mushrooms for all the beautiful ramps and morels.

Also a special thanks so all those who attended and the chefs and wait staff that worked to make this evening a success! We could not have done it without you.
