I love reading your menus! The lamb with pineapple seems like a wonderful and original combination, and the sweet potato gnocchi seems like a perfect accompaniment.

Finally reached my goal weight- 120 lbs- & never going back!

Beautiful presentation, nice combinations. Everything hods together. No wacky combinations that don't quite hold together like one sees often these days. Looks like a huge amount of food.

New to this site, so forgive the Questions, Where do you work, do you have a website? and if you don't mind me asking, How many did you sell, or was it exclusively Degust?

The pineapple actually went well with the natural flavor the of the lamb and the lamb jus. A little bit of sweetness to balance everything out. Guests were encouraged to eat a little pineapple with the lamb and sauce together.

We did 140 covers with two seatings (1st seating: 5:30, 6:00, 6:30; 2nd seating: 8:00, 8:15, 8:30). It was purely degustation because of the holiday, and also for efficiency and speed. We did substitutions only for dietary purposes (vegetarian, allergies, etc.). The amuse, carpaccio, soup, and salad were decent portions but small enough to where most guests could finish their entrees and dessert.

Elcameron, I PM'd you the other info.

I'm sure it did IC, I might try making a clumsy approximation of it, but of course, mine won't touch yours! I also feel I have to say that I just showed this to DH and he pointed out that he thinks it looks like excellent value for such beautiful food.
