Warm Corn Soup with Shitake & Shrimp

Seared Scallops with Fresh Tomato & Pesto

Panna Cotta / Blackberry Sauce

We'll cut corn from the cob to create this delicious soup which is served warm topped with shitake & shrimp.  Seared Scallops will be nestled into roasted tomatoes that are bedded into a smear of pesto.  Panna Cotta, an always refreshing dessert plays nicely with flavor and color against the boozy blackberry sauce.

Layered Late Summer Salad

Pan Fried Chicken Sandwich

Any Berry Yogurt Cake

Individual layered salads are visually exciting and taste fantastic.  We'll make "The Best" home-style crispy flavorful chicken sandwich on a soft bun.  What better to have in your cooking repertoire than a moist delicious cake that can be made with any berries and is not a tome consumiing ordeal.
