For the entrée, Chef Marc will prepare filet mignon, a wild mushroom ragout, candied honey carrots and fondant potatoes. Lastly, a triple chocolate cake garnished with orange confit and raspberries awaits you for dessert.

I took my mom as a Christmas gift and also brought my girlfriend along, and we all had a great time! Chef Marc was incredibly knowledgeable and eager to share his many experiences. The only thing that was better than the experience, was the food itself. The chicken cordon bleu and sauce was one of the best things I've eaten in a long time. Highly recommend!
