Harvest Dinner Wrap-Up

Thanks to everyone who came out last night to break bread with friends and support the LGG at our Annual Harvest Dinner.   We were asked a lot about the dishes during the dinner, so we thought we would post the menu online if folks want to try to recreate the dish for themselves.   We’ve also included links below if you’d like to enjoy a meal at each chef’s home base!
