2012 October Event

Our guest chef was Chef Anthony Bucco of The Ryland Inn in Whitehouse Station, NJ. Chef Bucco studied at the NY Restaurant School in NYC. He was Executive Chef at Stage Left and worked at Uproot, two outstanding NJ restaurants. He is now reviving the legendary Ryland Inn. This was a not to be missed event

The courses for the night were:

1st: Day Boat Fluke Crudo w/ compressed melon, habanero and mint.

2d: Pan Roasted Tile Fish w/ NJ corn, applewood-smoke bacon, white balsamic and scallions.

3d: Cocoa and Coffee Crusted Denver Leg of Venison w/ butternut squash, figs, and hazelnuts.

4th: Apple cake w/ Fig &amp; Balsamic puree, raisin chutney and creme fraiche.<h/5>

This was one of the most outstanding events with an enthusiastic and talented guest chef. He was anxious to instruct us in his cuisine and he proved to be a fantastic teacher. We hope he comes back soon.

Chef Bucco has also arranged a special dinner event for our wives and lovers at the Chef's Table in the Ryland Inn for October 24. The guys are sure to be jealous.
