Weren't those short ribs scrumptious?! I thought the duck/potato terrine app was delicious..as was everything. Chef Alan Kerr is truly a kitchen wizard!

I can't imagine being able to pull something like that off. Sounds absolutely great.

I know, Mike!! Alan Kerr is an amazing chef who teaches culinary classes in Canada. All of this is done on site and in two days! He is a stickler for perfection. I honestly don't know how he does it all, usually with only one sous chef and a couple of volunteers for prep help. You need to join us next year to experience this for yourself!
