Red Reflet Ranch Cuisine

21 02 2010

As the snow piles up on the hitching posts, I anticipate the arrival of spring, and the fresh strawberry flowers, wild asparagus, and fresh green grass sprouting on the hills.  Barb and Matthieu have been busy readying the greenhouse, calving is going on at the cattle center, and I have been busy reducing stock for velvety sauces.

The Valentine’s Fundraiser given by the Worland Rotary was a big hit!!  I even donated a full dinner for four to the cause and was pleasantly surprised when it fetched the mighty sum of $575.  A big thanks to the ranch staff members who assisted during the dinner,  especially to Baptiste, one of the Rotary exchange students, who prepared many of the appetizers and then knocked out all the dishes the night of the evening.  Here’s the menu:
