We again celebrate the successful completion of our holiday wreath project with a sumptuous January winter tea, this year with our newest hotel neighbor, the luxurious Mandarin Oriental, in the lovely Bangkok Room.Â After a brief business meeting updating the membership on the Club’s projects and progress to date, we will enjoy the opportunity to socialize with each other.
Executive Chef Nicolas Boutin will bring world-class credentials and culinary artistry to the Mandarin Oriental, Boston.Â He has most recently been part of The Landmark, Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong team, earning high praise and glowing reviews for its inspired fare.Â Boutin also credits much of his talent to having honed his culinary skills under the tutelage of numerous award-winning chefs, including the acclaimed Chef Pierre and Michel Troisgros, one of the longest-rated, three-star Michelin chefs in France. The sumptuous menu will include a variety of tea sandwiches – smoked salmon on wheat bread with caviar, chicken curry with grapes on walnut bread,Â foie gras with fig preserve and cracked black pepper on brioche, Vermont cheddar quiche, plus raisin scones with Devonshire cream, lemon madeleines, raspberry-pistachio financier, honey & ginger pain d’epices, fruit tartlet, and blueberry cheese cake. Did we mention the 64% chocolate and mandarin, and the 70% chocolate and praline, and the individual pots of select loose teas? $40 per person for members, $50 per person for guests.Â For more information, call Francine Crawford at 617-859-8865.
