Second Encore Affair of the 2018-2019 Season: A Chef’s Kitchen

October 12, 2018

On October 12, twenty-six eager patrons gathered at A Chef’s Kitchen, on Prince George Street, expecting good food, good company, and good humor. They were not disappointed! Chef John Gonzales and his assistant prepared a delicious meal, blending their expert culinary instruction with historical and regional context, and with delightful humor. Champagne, hors d’oeuvres, paired wines, a four-course meal, and desert were included in the evening's offering. Skillet-baked cornbread, also referred to by Chef Gonzales as “Life Changing Cornbread,” was prepared with attention to detail and ingredients to produce a mouthwatering moment--especially when slathered with warm honey butter! For those daring to try this and other dishes at home, Chef Gonzales provided a twelve-page recipe booklet. One of the most popular of the Encore Affairs events, A Chef’s Kitchen always sells out quickly and will be among the offerings for 2019-2020. The League greatly appreciates the support of all who participated in this and other Encore Affairs events.
