When was the last time your date was wrapped in bacon??? Ok, how about strawberries in your risotto?

CheeseB's May Festival of Chefs--the first weekend has passed and the title indicates what you missed if you weren't able to come out. On May 5th--to launch this year's event, Executive Chef Donna Dooher brought her skills from Mildred Pierce. Cheese Boutique was honoured to have her as MP will closing on July 31 after 17 years in operation to pursue new avenues.

The weather couldn't have been better for eating out on Cheese Boutique's patio. On Sunday May 6th, Executive Chef Massimo Capra from Mistura presented yet another house risotto specialty. Mix in asparagus with strawberry and your quickly realizing that adventure in food is only limited by your imagination.

For more photos, check out Cheese Boutique's main web site a little later this week. Each event day that has passed will have a photo journal of what was served. But of course, the pictures are not as good as actually sampling in person....
On deck next week is Keith Froggett of Scaramouche, May 12, and Bruce Woods of Centro, May 13.
