Miss Iccha celebrated a birthday and rather sit around chilaxing she opted to have another one of her awetastic dinners. And lucky girl that I am gets to take pics, taste yummness and be a part of the prep crew. The dinner was at the breathtaking Gothic Quaker place in Hyde park on Friday December 17th. Unfortunately the holidays took over for the last week so I am a week behind in sharing the love.
Iccha’s theme was based on it being her day and she wanted to share some of her favorite things. Many of the dishes were pulled from her food memories and are tied to wonderful stories and anecdotes. (on a side I suggest you print the menu, buy some yummy beer or sparkling stuff and try to get some face time with her for the history..Im just saying)
So I will get to the menu and then enjoy the slide show of the loveliness. This time I was assisting more in the kitchen than in past events so did not get many pics of the guests nor the host:(.
