I was sent an invitation to brunch at the Four Seasons. Unfortunately for me, I was out of town for the event. I sent my dear friend Netta to attend and write about it for Beef and Chocolate.
Minjenah went out of town for a little fun so she sent me her invitation for the Blogger's Brunch at The Four Seasons. First I must say "Thank you Mama!" It was quite an event. We started with Mimosas on the roof and it only got better from there. Our hosts, Marsha and Abby of M-Squared Public Relations, were friendly and attentive. They made us feel like even though we were at The Four Season, it was a casual afternoon with great friends.
Chef Gerstenecker was wonderful! His kitchen must love him and he would be a welcomed addition at any dinner party even if he's not cooking. He introduced us to the hotel's queen bees, one of which lives in a pink hive (and of course my Honey Bear had to go pick them up!), showed us the beautiful rooftop garden which includes hydroponics, served us a delicious lunch (I now love squash blossoms) and then brought us into the kitchen for fresh-baked donuts and home-made chocolate (yum!).
We had a great time and even won an evening at the Chef's Table! Needless to say I had to watch my back on the way to the parking lot. Thank you Marsha and Abby for the opportunity and Chef Gerstenecker for your hospitality.
I was not paid for this post but did get a wonderful lunch!
A cuban is a grilled sandwich. You can use a panini press or do as I do and use a George Foreman grill.
Cuban bread Mustard Pickles Roast Pork, thinly sliced Ham, thinly sliced Cheese (Swiss ideally but I used cheddar)
Slice the bread in half, slather the mustard on and put the remaining ingredients in the bread. Put in a panini press (or a George Foreman grill if you are ghetto like me) and let the bread toast and cheese melt.
I am a tiny Asian woman trying to navigate the Deep South. I have a profound love of all things deep fried.
I married a man seven years my junior (WHO IS THE ROCK STAR! JAYUUH!)
I have a well developed sense of humor and a poorly developed sense of spacial relations.
I share too much, which is why I need to blog to edit before I over share with people how often I poop and how I saw my first gray hair at 24 AND IT WAS NOT ON MY HEAD.
I had a child on February 2007 I had another child in October of 2011. My life has not been the same. It has gotten a lot better.
