thanksgiving menu, 2011

Serving thanksgiving dinner at our favorite clients in the Berkeley hills. Prefer to think of them as friends, actually! Always a fun time at their events and dinners!  The friendly atmosphere the amazing view, the wonderful wines, always inspire us to present serious dishes.
