Right around this time of the year, every year, I look forward to that one special occasion (before the actual Thanksgiving and X-Mas roll around) to launch my holiday-mood-sequence. It helps me forget all my holiday stress of cooking, baking and gift shopping and forces me to just take a moment to revel in what this season is truly all about. A couple of years ago it was a wonderful holiday performance at Westport Playhouse, some years it may be a special bake sale or a holiday concert in which kids in our family are participating. This year’s choice was clear to me as soon as I saw a tweet about a Holiday Reception from The Schoolhouse at Cannondale. Activate launch sequence!
The Schoolhouse at Cannondale is a true gem of Fairfield County. Chef and owner, Tim LaBlant, continues to reinvent himself with cutting edge ideas and flavor profiles from the culinary world. The constantly changing menu, derived primarily from the seasons and local produce, makes sure that there is never a feeling of same ol’ same ol’ at this restaurant.
The Holiday Reception at The Schoolhouse was truly unique. It was presented by the sous chef, Nick Verdisco, and the pastry chef, Jessie Fila. Together they created a delectable menu of finger foods fit for any holiday table.
