Warm Yakima aspargus served with Dijon mustard cream, chives and cripy country ham
Cafe Presse chef de cuisine James O’Hern unveiled his new menu for Spring 2018 today with the traditional staff tasting. The staff tasting is sort of a cross between a dinner party and a training class on all the details of the new menu; food, friends and lots of talk about the dishes.
Here are some photos to whet your appetite. Hope you will come by Cafe Presse soon to try the new dishes for yourself.
And watch this space for photos of the new dessert menu coming soon!
