We enjoyed our "Tables In Wonderland" dinner so much (May 21, 2009 - Theme = Zellwood Corn) that I now look for the opportunity to return to their monthly gatherin (3rd Thursday of each month). Click Here for the Zellwood Corn Dinner review From the menu.... "Our dinner will feature Lott Farms located just west of Plant City, Florida. Mike and Sandy Lott started their farm in 1979 on rented land and purchased and built their family farm of 50 acres in 1983. They have lived and farmed this land with their children and grandchildren since that date. Mike's great strawberries are sold under the Classic label through C&D Produce Distributors. Jim Killam is the North Florida Sales Manager for Vineyard Brands. He is the importer of all the wines that have been chosen to pair with the menu selections to be served this evening. Jim has been involved in the Food and Beverage Industry for over 30 years and has been a long-time friend and partner with the Walk Disney World Food and Beverage team. Jim is a Certified Sommelier by the Court of the Master Sommeliers." ---------------------- Lucky me - much as I love corn (and I do), I love strawberries even more! I was dining solo this evening. I saw many familiar faces from the May 2009 dinner - they all seem to know each other really well. --------------------- Reception: Avocado Fries with Ancho Chile Aoili I ate several of these delectable tidbits. Avocados are not indigenous to my area, and I don't have confidence selecting and preparing food with them. As with any food I really like and rarely have, I accepted all offers of these. Ali, as with most of the Wave staff, is a regular participant in these dinners. Friendly, cheerful and always willing to smile for the camera.
