The Treasure Island Job Corps Fine Dining is such a special culinary treat that I was hesitant to share this meal with you.. I did not want to share for selfish reasons. For the small fee of 13 dollars one can dine on a three course gourmet meal prepared by students of the various culinary classes of the Treasure Island Job Corps. This will be our third visit and against better judgement we would like to share this experience. (Just keep it a secret please).
Ms. Goofy had the “Cream of Tomato Soup Served with a grilled cheese sandwich with basil oil” I opted for the;
Little Grm Lettuce salad With a balsamic mustard vinaigrette, pickled vegetables, apple, candid walnuts and blue cheese
with a Demi-GlaceServed with grilled seasonal vegetables and au gratin potatoes
Assorted wild mushroom risotto drizzled with truffle oil and sunny side-up egg
Flaky pastry cup encasing Diplomat custard crème, topped with glazed fresh fruits, berries, and garnish.
Two layers of tender vanilla bean and Mandarin orange custard, finished with a tart-sweet orange coulis, crème Chantilly, a chocolate run out, and served with a house made chocolate lace cookie
The meal is served with several beverage choices (no alcohol) which included the usual suspects and the most flavorful fruit smoothies. Before the dessert course a plate of candies that included the tuxedo chocolate covered strawberry above was fantastic. You can see now why I was hesitant in sharing. Oh my this meal was fantastic.
