Last Thursday was the 11th Annual Food for Thought at the Roger William's Park Botanical Gardens. I had been looking forward to the event since I'd first heard about it this summer, and was also excited to check out the remodeled Botanical Gardens.
The indoor gardens were spectacular and were a fantastic backdrop for an elegant food and drink event. When we walked in, we were greeted by a table of The Genesis Center's cookbooks:
And then we dived right into the food! Some of the highlights included Julian's spiced pumpkin gnocchi:
CAV's lobster bisque soup with creme fraiche:
El Rancho Grande's mole:
And Gracie's parfaits sprinkled with pop rocks!:
I even ran into the winner of my Food for Thought contest! Andy and I felt like we needed to be rolled out of there because we obviously had to try everything (and seconds of some things). So, obviously, the event was a great success!
