2013 Granary Gourmet Dinner

It’s been two years since we were last at the Granary Gourmet Dinner. The evening is a benefit to support the Lemont Village Association.

Last night we enjoyed a great dinner catered by EcoVents and spent time with some of our neighbors. It was a beautiful evening on rather cool day for mid-September and the space, as usual, was charming and rustic.

Next was the French Lentil Soup.  I think this was by far my favorite course of the entire meal.

French Lentil SoupI sort of forgot to take pictures of the entire main course (maybe I was just that excited to taste it!) but here is the Filet with Mushrooms and Red Wine Sauce. As you can see it
was done perfectly.  There was also a Potato Gratin with Gruyere and Pappardelle with a Fricassee of Wild Mushrooms.

And for a dessert a Fresh Pear Tarte.  I only had a few bites of mine and while I am sure it was good, I’m just not a huge fan of cooked fruit.
