The Lunch Club XV: The Chef Benedict Experience

If you came for our last festival, you probably noticed the chef making pasta from scratch. Well, we got him to host this month's Lunch Club in his lovely home. Now, Benedict spent his formative years in Italy so naturally our menu was all Italian, something we haven't done since we had Chef Flo at the Miele Gallery.

The starter was a little scary because we had no clue what Zucchini Velutata was. In fact, Nosa assumed it was going to be grilled zucchinis. 

FALSE.

It was Zucchini soup.

Thank you to Chef Benedict for hosting our little group and getting us to try new things, it was absolutely amazing. If you'd love to join us for one of our lunches or want to know how it works, click HERE for more info.
