I have whole list of things I am needing to write about that have happened over the past few weeks but just not had the time.  I am trying to get back on track and am going to start with most recent first!

Last night my husband and I celebrated our 20th Wedding Anniversary at bluestem in Westport, which is the perfect place to celebrate such a special occasion. I have been a fan of bluestem since the start of this blog and have enjoyed the special holiday tea bluestem offers during the holidays, their late night happy hour, summer bbq and just hanging out in the lounge.

This dinner was my first experience in the dining room and the meal was absolutely amazing. Chefs Colby and Megan Garrelts are so talented and have even taken over the kitchen at Trezo Vino in Leawood.

Dinner started with an amazing Amuse Bouche that consisted of a Sunchoke Panna Cotta, Potato Soup and I do not remember what little nugget of goodness was in the middle, but it was delicious as were the other items.

The dining room at bluestem offers three, five and ten course meals. We each went for the five course and my choices included: 
Fall Greens with Goat Cheese, Sunflower Granola and a Bacon Sherry Vinaigrette

 Chestnut Soup with Pomegranate, Toasted Pecan, Micro Greens
Campo Lindo Hen with local Beau Solais Farm Mushrooms

 Duroc Pork with Rancho Gordo Beans
 Spiced Pumpkin Pudding Cake

As you can see the food presentation is breathtakingly beautiful. This dinner was absolutely amazing and definitely lives up to all the buzz that surrounds bluestem and reinforces all of the James Beard nominations Chef Colby has received. 

As you know the use of local ingredients and being locally owned is a passion of mine. This combined with the exquiste food and exceptional service makes bluestem a must for anyone wanting a memorable dining experience.


In Good Taste,
