What an exciting evening it was for our dinner party guests who experienced a marvelous "Taste of Florida" menu designed by Executive Chef Val Domingo of NOVA Orlando Restaurant! Accompanied by his wonderful wife in the kitchen, Chef Val wowed our TDPP guests with a 4-course meal using only ingredients sourced in the Sunshine State.
As the guests arrived at our host's beautiful craftsman style home in Thornton Park, everyone gathered in the living room for cocktails & hors d'oeuvres.
After some light bites and swooning over the mid-century modern flair throughout the home, everyone moved to the dining room to get to know each other a little better. The second course, a Peach & Ginger Bisque, was silky smooth and absolutely delicious.
So many connections were made and laughter filled the air as everyone around the table talked about their careers, hobbies and why they love Orlando. Time flew by as the main course was served; a gorgeous Florida Red Grouper! A crisp white wine pairing was also prepared by NOVA's General Manager/Partner, Westley Lynn.
With just enough room left for dessert, guests indulged in a traditional blueberry cobbler topped with homemade vanilla ice cream, complete with a hot, French pressed cup of Credo coffee!
Huge thanks to Chef Val Domingo and NOVA Restaurant for partnering with TDPP! The food was AMAZING and everyone had a wonderful evening!
