Late Winter Birthday Lunch Menu

We recently celebrated my dear Heidi's birthday with a lunch of family and close friends.  Heidi gave me free reign to create a menu for her lunch with her only request being "I don't want food that bites me back!" (meaning nothing too spicy!).

So knowing that Heidi adores potatoes, mushrooms, seafood, asparagus and all berries we created a menu inspired by the fusion of French, Asian and Pacific North West American cuisine.

The result was fantastic with no one cuisine overpowering the other and a truly delightful afternoon of food, fun and frivolity!

Happy Birthday Heidi!
