Before anyone gets the winter blahs...and says that there is nothing to do...consider a wonderful dining experience here in North East PA presented by the Culinary and Wine Institute at Mercyhurst North East. Starting on January 6th, and on every Thursday thereafter, they will be preparing an International dinner to be served at beautiful Lakeview Country Club.
The cost for each meal is $30 per person (including tax); seating begins at 6pm with dinner served at 6:30pm. What a wonderful way to spend a romantic evening or getaway. I have had lunches prepared by the Culinary students, and the food is outstanding. There is always a recommended wine to go with the food.
And definitely reserve in advance.....the last series in the fall was a lunch series, and it sold out very fast.
Just to give you an idea of the type of food that is being offered....on Thursday, January 27.. Classic French: starting with a gougere (choux pastry) with ham and mushrooms, potage garbure (root vegetable stew), mixed green with French vinaigrette, Chicken Marengo resting in a tomato and wine sauce, haricots vert, pan roasted potatoes, orange chocolate mousse. YUM!
