Last night was the 11th Annual Gourmet Granary Candlelight Dinner in Lemont, Pennsylvania. The event was catered by EcoVents and benefited the Lemont Village Association.It was a cool evening, perfect to enjoy a Spanish themed multi-course meal in the John I. Thompson Grain Elevator and Coal Sheds.
To start there were cracked marinated Spanish olives, salted almonds, a selection of cheeses, figs with goat cheese and serrano ham, and a variety of empanadas: mushroom and cheese, chicken and poblano cream cheese and beef and potato. I tried two of the empanadas and the fig with goat cheese and ham. My favorite was definitely the figs.
Dessert followed with coffee from Cafe Lemont and a cherry almond tart.
