One of our beloved chefs is leaving the kitchen to go back to grad school full time to become a registered dietician. We had a little goodbye dinner at Gjelina to celebrate Anjali’s next adventure.
Brunette power in our kitchen.
Anjali’s dessert menu had some edits from a previous diner, we happen to agree that the strawberry & rhubarb crisp was not warm enough nor was the chocolate crust on the banana cream pie chocolaty enough. Have you ever gone to dinner with chefs? It’s like being in art school and having your work critiqued. Or maybe it’s like shoving a fork in your eye, it’s just what we do.
Another thing chefs do at an inspiring dinner, take pictures of what they ate and share it on social media.
Some highlights of our amazing meal: this Croatian wine (we mob with a wine expert)
Young Garbanzo beans with goat cheese
Caponata crostini with burrata (sadly not pictured are the orange glazed carrots and squash blossom pizza winners.)
And the desserts!! The banana-chocolate bread pudding and butterscotch pot de creme were outstanding.
