This year’s event started off with passable appetizers from our very own executive chef Brie Feilmeier assisted by our Sous Chef Matt Manuel.  We served roasted beet, hazelnut and goat cheese puff pastries.  Followed by potato latke with kohlrabi crème fraiche and onion pearls and rounded out with bison medallion with braised daikon radish and apple-sweet pepper relish. This course was paired with Odell Brewery’s Myrcenary Ale.
