Plain & Fancy Ball Auction Item feature: "A Dining Six-Pack"

We have brought in more than 170 items for the silent and live auctions for the Plain & Fancy Ball, many of which were donated by alumni. I'll be featuring a half dozen of these alumni over the next two weeks. Other generous donors include various Metro State College of Denver departments. This is one of my favorites: A Dining Six-Pack

6 guests, 6 courses, 6 wines, 6 o'clock
A 6-course dinner prepared in your home by the students and faculty members of the Hotel, Tourism and Event Management Department. This item includes all food, labor, china, glassware and silverware. The estimated value is $850.00, and this is what it includes:

First Course: Assorted bouches, goat cheese with smoked salmon and boursin cheese with carmelized onions and balsamic reduction. Prosecco Sparkling Wine.

Second Course: Shrimp Madagascar--Shrimp sauteed in butter and olive oil, flamed in Pernod, topped with whipping cream, and finished with tomato concasse and minched chives. Pinot Grigio.
