The Medieval decadence Chef Alexander has created for “A Midsummer’s Night Feast” is modestly evocative of the gluttonous imagery evoked in Errol Flynn’s “Robin Hood” classic, but we’re pushing the boundaries with a whole roasted pig as the centerpiece of his menu.
On July 23 starting at 6 p.m., we honor one of our own when we fete Gail Avery Halverson on the publication of her debut novel, The Boundary Stone. Join us for a Renaissance-inspired evening when long tables will groan with a profligate array of hearty, regal fare served family-style. Here’s the menu:
First Course: Potage of Summer Vegetables with Farmstead Cheddar Dumplings and Ale Broth
Second Course: Honey-Glazed Suckling Pig Roast Chicken with Green Herb Sauce Selection of Chutney and Marmalades
Potatoes Roasted with Ancient Spices
Strange and Unusual Tomato Salad from The New World
Land of Fruits and Nuts
Dessert: “Blackbird Pie” with Blackberries, Clotted Cream
This event is inclusive of wine, tax and tip; each couple attending and every single participant will receive a copy Gail’s softcover book, which she will be pleased to sign at your table. The cost is $99 per person, all in. This is a “ticketed” event; you must purchase your ticket on our website to confirm your reservation by clicking here. Like all our Sunday Series programs, we are unable to issue refunds. Just 28 tickets remain…we’re 50% sold out.
A long-time customer, we’re very proud of Gail’s success: her novel has been richly rewarded with the Chatelaine Award for romantic fiction in Chanticleer Book Review’s International Writing Competition. She was also a finalist in two additional competitions, the Chaucer Award (Historical Fiction) and the Cygnus Award (Speculative Fiction).
Though this is her first novel, Gail has numerous writing credits: she has produced a series of musical plays that have been performed for some 300,000 Sacramento-area students since 2004. And, a situation comedy plot she created is now in post-production. Learn more about Gail at www.gailhalv.com.
This is another event that is sure to sell out quickly. Reserve now, or forever suffer in silence!
