Blogging with Bruce: Under the Toque
After the successful roll out of the new Founders' Room Dinner Menu, Chef Ron and his culinary team are hard at work on the next steps.
This week we introduced a new dessert menu with a variety of delicious items from our own Tracy Lauth of Black Tie Desserts. At the same time Chef Ron has modified his recipes and ingredients for our wonderful soufflés. A tasting of the soufflés last night had the staff raving about the flavors and consistency of chocolate and vanilla bean soufflés. Make sure to try Tracy's selections and the new soufflés on your next visit to the club.
February 11th is the start date for the new Vertex menu that will now be available from 11:30 am until one hour before Club closing. The new menu features a variety of items for sharing with guests as well as a new section of snacks. Chef Ron has added some great new salads, sandwiches and exciting entrees, while retaining some member favorites. Make sure you let us know your new favorites!
At the request of members we have modified much of the entire menu to be gluten-free. Additionally there is a selection of vegetarian items or items that can be easily modified to be vegetarian. If one of these items does not appeal to our vegetarians, we always stock Tofu and pastas which the culinary team can use to create a custom items. Please ask if that option is of interest.
Both the new Founders' Room dinner menu and the new Vertex menu are exciting upgrades to our culinary program. We invite your feedback and comments on these menus. We also continue to be interested in hearing new ideas or suggestions, since we will be modifying menus on a quarterly basis this year.
Thank you for your support.
