Yes, you can have too much of a good thing….

Last night, Tanya treated us (Romola, Stacy, Dallas and myself) to a Food Tasting at Stephan Pyle’s famous restaurant.  This was better (and more!) than I ever would have expected!  There were 10 courses, each accompanied by a different wine selection.  The food — and company — was fantastic.

Our first course was four different ceviches.  Each was superb, the ahi tune was truly special.  The second course was a delicious tomatillo soup with wonderful accompaniments.  By now,  I realized how special this was.  After all, Steven Pyle is one of the world’s most respective chefs.  So I took out my cell phone and tried to take some pictures.

Poor light, and I didn’t want to use a flash, but I think this may serve to illustrate the extent of the menu.  So here are pictures of the last eight courses, along with what they were, at least those I can still remember.  So excuse the poor picture quality, and I just can’t remember all the names of the dishes!  And congratulations on your promotion, Tanya!
