Italian Affair with Chef Britney
Chef Britney came to MESA to cook an teach how to cook Gnocchi 2 ways. He started with his signature sauce, Big Ass Bourbon Sauce, served with large cocktail shrimp and avocado. There was not one empty dish sent back! Chef Britney also baked amazing bread while everyone enjoyed their appetizer and filled the kitchen studio with a wonderful aroma. The bread was served with their salad that was complimented with home made vinaigrette dressing. A sorbet palette cleanser was then served before the main entrée.
Chef Britney was very entertaining and even got a bit emotional as he expressed how happy he was his daughter was there to help him cook at MESA.
Dessert was a crowd pleaser as he served Budino. A custard like dessert topped with a caramel topping , whipped cream and a long wafer cookie. Everyone expressed how amazing the Budino was.
