Once again, we were invited to experience Chef Pagoda’s 10 course dinner. And for lack of a better word – it was AMAZING. The amount of prep and thought that went into each plating and flavor profile was immense, and the outcome was encroyable! I truly hope someone buys Aaron a restaurant asap so the world can experience his gift.
Here are the courses we were treated to:
Snow Crab cone with whipped avocado, fresh peaches, red onion, poblano pepper, cilantro and orange zest
Beef Wellington Sliders (Filet Mignon, Sauteed Portobello, Caramelized Onions, Stone Ground Mustard) with a Kimchi Hot Sauce and side of beet chips
Jumbo Sea Scallop on a bed of Japanese Eggplant and crispy Red Quinoa in a mango, lemongrass curry
Yellowfin Tuna Sashimi One Bite in coconut milk with lime sorbet, cilantro and chives
Pork Loin over Bleu Cheese Pesto with a Fresh Fig Sauce
New Orleans Savory Crepe filled with Sausage, Mussels, shrimp, shallots, peppers, and aged cheddar – drizzled with a zesty creole sauce
Smoked Jalapeno Gnocchi ‘n Cheese with buttered Panko crust (aged Gouda and vintage aged cheddar)
Chilean Sea Bass over French Beans, Cannellini Beans, roasted cherry tomatoes, bacon crumbles and fresh herbs in a sweet corn puree
Sweet Potato Dessert: Sweetened Ricotta base, Crushed salted Pistachios, Whipped Sweet Potato with cinnamon and brown sugar, Milk Chocolate sauce, and Graham cracker dust
Cheesescake with Blueberries & Caramel Sauce, paired with Blanche de Namur
Thank you Aaron!
