Flavors of Fall 2011

On Monday night, Boston Chefs held its 8th annual Flavors of Fall event at the Regattabar inside the Charles Hotel in Cambridge. The event benefits a different organization every year. This year proceeds from the event went to Tutoring Plus, a program that provides tutoring and enrichment to students in Cambridge. The evening was an intimate affair with a dozen or so Cambridge restaurants and the Rollo Tomasi Quartet providing delightful jazz accompaniment. Below, a look at some of the plates prepared for the event.

Porchetta on corn flour soft rolls with red cabbage from Bondir.

Chestnut chiboust with rosemary dacquoise, candied Naples long squash and spiced beet mostarda vinaigrette from Bondir.

Lucky 7 Farms Berkshire pork terrine with fall fruit chutney from Area Four.

Lamb meatballs with spicy feta, pita and fried oregano from Upstairs on the Square.

Caramel budino from Harvest

Maple creme brulée from Sandrine’s.

A tremendous thank you to Honor, Paul, and the rest of the Boston Chefs team for putting on yet another wonderful event.

  1. Area Four’s bite looks fabulous! How were the desserts?

      The maple creme brulee was delightful. I believe Megan said it was like eating pancakes. The budino was good but very rich and dense, that whole shot glass of it was too much even for me. A little more whipped cream might have helped to cut the heaviness.

      Area Four’s bites were amazing. I won’t say my post is coming soon, but eventually I’ll write about them!

  2. This looks like an amazing event!

    The budino looks amazing. I’m sure I could have finished the entire shot glass.

  5. Love all these local Cambridge eats!

  6. The first couple of photos reminded me I need to get to Bondir! That caramel bundino, however -YUM

    Hmm… you neglected to mention how much you loved that maple creme brûlée. 😉 So fun checking out this event with you!

    • Elizabeth says:

      Haha, glad I have you here to keep me honest 😉 This was definitely one of my less verbose posts, but while we’re on the subject, for everyone else out there, I ate at least three of the maple creme brulees and they were faaabulous.
