Dinner in the Dordogne (at Langdon Hall)

It was a french food (and duck) invasion at last Friday's sold out BBQ at Langdon Hall.  Hosted by Bonnie Stern and Mitchell Davis, the pair inspired a menu for Executive Chef Jonathan Gushue that transported guests all the way to the South of France.  And while the rain may have moved the festivities indoors, spirits were hardly dampened especially considering how much foie gras was involved.

This is the third summer Bonnie and Mitchell have hosted together.  Last year saw a Middle Eastern themed feast and the year before a Southern barbeque.  In 2010 Bonnie hosted with chef Anthony Rose.

You've still got time to experience one of these epic Friday night dinners for yourself.  Chef Nick Benninger will be there on August 16th, Anthony Rose with Cheese Boutique's Afrim Pristine on August 30th, Chef Marc Lepine on September 6th, and Alex Cruz and Cyril Gonzales on September 13th.  Click here for all the details.
