Home Restaurant

I’m so excited to try my first home restaurant this evening.  I’ve heard great things about this experience and have been wanting to go to one for over a year.  I was absolutely thrilled when I received an invitation to attend Sidra Forman‘s dinner tonight.  Sidra is an amazing woman with many talents.  I truly admire her ability to create and manage a business that logically intertwines all of her passions in life.  Below is a what was prepared at February’s dinner.  I think I’m in for a treat!
