Indulge your senses with the best of California cuisine based on fresh local ingredients from private chef Marisa Cole.
Benefiting Alex's Lemonade Stand
A Feast for the Senses
Chef Marisa Cole prepares dishes that are vibrant and layered with Mediterranean flavors, which reveal her training in Florence and positions at San Francisco’s finest restaurants including Boulevard and Aqua. For this in-home dining experience, Chef Marisa will create a dinner that celebrates simplicity while showcasing brilliant techniques that enhance the natural flavors of her recipe's star ingredients. Meant to be a semi-casual meal for an intimate group, your gathering can also be dressed up with the addition of hors d’oeuvres. While the following is a sample menu contingent on seasonal availability, it’s an excellent indication of what your guests can look forward to: a salad of Belgian endive, apples, and roasted butternut squash; salmon with beet risotto; and grilled asparagus with pecan butter noisette. The meal ends sweetly with a celebration of the season’s fruits. It might be a spiced apple and pear clafoutis or a rich lavender honey crème brûlée with berry coulis. The result is a dinner party that you and your guests will fondly remember.
