I paid for my entry ticket.
I am a huge foodie! Follow me on my food IG (@geniabemefood) to see my foodie adventures as well as my home made meals! Anyways, I was lucky enough to be invited to another Chanse’s Chef’s Table. Chanse’s table brings strangers together to enjoy a great meal! The Chef, Chanse, cooks for fun and with help from Jenn he invites people into his home to cook for them OR has someone host the event at their house and he goes there to cook. I’ve been twice, once at his home and once at one at someone else’s home. These are super fun because you get to meet like minded people and in this case that would be people who LOVE FOOD because only true food lovers would pay to eat at a strangers house with other strangers! This event was only $40 for a 7 course meal!! WHAT A STEAL!
Below is a picture from my last experience. We were last minute additions so we sat in a little side room! The house the event was held was so cute! My boyfriend and I are at the top, to the right and left are our good friends Chad and Allison, and at the bottom are Palmer and Jenn. I also wanted to say that my boyfriend and I met Chad and Allison at our first Chanse’s Chef’s Table and have gone out to eat at least once or twice a week since we all share similar interests in food, craft beer, and currently family situation! Allison and I are even taking a trip together to go to Chicago to eat at my #1 restaurant on my bucket list, Alinea!

ON TO THE FOOD!
They had yummy edamame around the tables when I first got there. We were a little late so I forgot to take a picture :/
First course was a trio of seafood, sashimi style. From left to right: Tuna on top of a fried lotus root, scallop on fried taro, and red snapper on a fried wonton chip. EVERYTHING was so good but my all time favorite was
Jenn was also also walking around with extra taro and cucumber salsa for everyone to have. You don’t have to ask me twice! 😛
The next course was a surprise! Chanse made some shrimp mac and cheese for the kids and he decided to make us some too! This was VERY good, one of the best mac and cheeses I have had in awhile!
Next we had a piece of lamb with puréed eggplant with charred romaine and a corn salsa. WOW. SO GOOD. The lamb was cooked perfectly and the eggpl;ant puree was a great addition. We didn’t even know it was eggplant! Also, I’ve never had charred romaine so I was excited to try it! It was very good with the corn salsa.
MMMM. Then we had KISS (keep it stupid simple) Key West lobster with a spicy tamarind fish sauce. YUMMY! The lobster was cooked a medium rare. This was my first time having lobster not cooked well done. It was very tender and delicious with the sauce!!
The last savory dish of the night was a steamed chicken thigh wrapped in banana leaves with a ginger sauce and fried chicken skin on top! This reminded me of sticky rice and was very tasty. The chicken was cooked perfectly, not too dry, and the crispy chicken skin was sooo good, I could have had a BAG of them!
The dessert was some ice cream mochi! Chef Chanse always makes it known that his desserts are always simple!
