It is nearly MAY. How does this happen? So much to tell you...let's see. Sorry to drop off the planet last week! It was a I-can-hardly-catch-my-breath-life-is-going-in-too-many-directions kind of week. The green smoothie challenge turned out fine, and it IS true. After the three days of misery it was a cake walk. Six full days of fresh veggies and fruits. NOW...
on to the post feature: an underground dinner experience in FEAST magazine.
Local winery. Local chef. Local magazine. Splendid evening.
Remember this catering display I worked on a while back? Well, I was able to attend an incredible event by the same caterers, entre, and even more exciting—the evening is the feature article in a local magazine, FEAST.
Quick details about the event. Entre Underground is a monthly event where the menu and location are kept secret until the day of. My husband and I wanted to participate and we decided to jump at the chance for the overnight experience (knowing it included a bed & breakfast). We were given directions to Hermannhof Vineyards and packed our bags!
To begin the evening we checked into our AMAZING hillside cottage overlooking the Missouri River. From there we headed to the newly remodeled vineyard grainery to munch on hors d'oeuvres and wine. Then made our way over the the 150-year-old, stone-carved caves of the winery cellar for a five-course candlelit dinner. Just remembering makes me feel so dreamy! The relaxing continued into the morning with breakfast, followed by a lazy drive back to St. Louis through many of the small winery towns on a drizzly Sunday.
Everything a getaway should be.
