The Finale. was outstanding (FSO) and delicious (KB)
We enjoyed the most amazing evening this past Saturday, where we were surrounded by Art… it was in the air! The Firelands Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of Maestro Carl Topilow (with vocalist Helen Welch), simply enchanted the large audience at the McBride Arboretum at BGSU Firelands Campus in Huron. What a delight! The Kitchens Bounty Team was pleased to present our small tastings of dessert, named for the occasion, “The Finale.” We think it was just the perfect accompaniment! The Finale is prepared with our Triple Chocolate “Reserve Biscotti Crumbles” (that is what we do when our cookie crumbles), and fresh berries marinated in balsamic vinegar, our own Berry Caramel Sauce, decadent French Crème, and just to go over the top, our own Chocolate Sauce. We served over 400 mini desserts and heard a lot of “Yums!” but the applause… that was all for the wonderful music and the amazing interpretation of the American Songbook. Congratulations to the FSO Board, Maestro Carl Topilow, Executive Director Jamie Steinemann, and all the volunteers it took to pull this off! And special Kudos to the Sponsors that gifted an appreciative community with this free experience. I know from both sides of the table what a feat that was.
As for our Kitchens Bounty Team… well, we felt in our element. Surrounded by Art, in the Air with Music, and on our Tables with all natural, delicious decadence, and in our gifting of the Finale! What a beautiful and fitting Finale to the Summer of 2012.
