I went to another Chef's Table event with a friend of mine - a chef demonstrates how to make several dishes and answers questions about them and we get to eat them, along with drinking wine pairings. Fun and yummy

So we had roasted oysters to start, then roasted rockfish with herbed beurre blanc and seasoned bread crumbs, puréed sweet potatoes with pecan-brown sugar topping, and lightly steamed kale salad. Apple crumble with the same pecan topping, along with caramel ice cream, for dessert.

Thanks, Cheryl! I'll really have to buckle down and cook low-cal and small meals after this feeding frenzy of a trip! We had a great evening with tinlizzie today. It's fun to get together with fellow DCers off the boards. Much easier to share a appetizers with that way.

GG, that tasting looks interesting and yummy. However, I like generous portions, so I'd probably get into something like cheese, fruit, and crackers (and wine) as soon as I got back home.

It's touristy all right Craig, but it hasn't always been that way. Himself would go to a fish market with his dad back in the early 70's for fresh fish - it was on the Fort Myers side of the Matlacha Pass Bridge right before you started crossing water. I doubt if it's the "Island Seafood Market" on Pine Island Road, since that looks too new and touristy to be the place from nearly a half-century ago.

The restaurant, Blue Dog, is way more local hangout than tourist trap. Prices are reasonable, portions are good, and the place is full of regulars. If you get hungry while working out that way, you might want to give it a chance. Meanwhile, all the cool places around FMB and Fort Myers are slowly being bought out by Doc Ford.

I guess I forgot to mention the brie and pimento cheese with bread and fruit (and wine) we started with and which stayed on the table throughout the meal

Monday night it was tacos, last night venison liver with bacon and onions, tonight it is ham. This cooking for the Elders is pretty darn boring g.
