THE YEAR OF THE ROOSTER

Our pastry chef Bethany came up with this one, and I instantly loved the idea. Admittedly, I knew very little about the background, but it was an incredible opportunity to learn and embrace the traditions of a rich culture. We place a strong emphasis on family and community. That resonated with us. We were able to take time to reflect on the successes of the year gone by, and celebrate new beginnings as the people we wish to become. We served a lot of dumplings and noodles, fish and chicken, all in the hopes of prosperity. We even pulled together a family style Peking Duck reimagined. The best part though, was having so many familiar faces of long time guests (our extended family of guests) join us for this celebration in our dining room. As well, we got an overly gracious welcoming with our new friends at Lan Se Chinese Garden for some inspiration.
