But if any one event lets us know that the Gala is just around the corner (68 days until April 21!), it's the Gala Menu Tasting. Until this point, much of the Gala planning is on paper. Invitations haven't been mailed; program books are another month and half away. But here, with this meeting, we can start to see the Gala take shape. Delicious, delicious shape.

Our group ultimately chose a Veal Chop with Black Truffle and Baby Spinach Marsala Wine Reduction as the entree.
And a French Apple Tart with Caramel Anglaise as the dessert.
And to all that, you can add wines provided by Moore Bros. Wine Company. It's enough to make you feel stuffed before the event even starts. Color us very excited!
