The new event, Sub Rosa, is named after the Latin phrase meaning "under the rose," which refers to an ancient practice of placing a rose above a door to signify that visitors keep confidential whatever was on the other side...such as a delicious, four-course meal and live performance of classical music.[jump]
The in-home meals will begin with an apéritif and end with coffee, with several of the following sample courses between:
* Puree of Minnesota Chestnut Soup * Dungeness Crab, Citrus, Avocado & Local greens * White Wine Poached Halibut with Fennel Confit * Fresh Pasta al Nero with Lobster Butter * Venison Medallions with Beet & Farro Risotto * Bette Noir chocolate flourless cake with passionfruit sauce & coconut sorbet
The musical selections will change throughout the series, but will include Sergei Prokofiev's "Lieutenant Kije Suite #1 Romance" performed on piano and the singing of Italian Early Opera.
Five dinners will be held in February with a suggested donation price of $75 per person. Find out more details and reserve solo or in a group by clicking here.
