Connecticut Magazine had the scoop when it came to exactly what was served to those at the tony fundraiser for President Obama in Westport, Connecticut Monday.
I was kind of curious what $35,000+ gets you these days when it comes to politicial fundraisers. It was at the over-the-top home of movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, and yes the guest list was a platinum one including Anna Wintour, Anne Hathaway and Jerry Springer (?) but come on. Chicken? They got chicken?
This according to the magazine…
“This very tall dinner order was handed over by Weinstein to Michael Nischan, head chef/owner of the Dressing Room restaurant in Westport. Nischan had a week to get everything together for the star-studded sit-down, which took place Monday evening. Characteristically given Nischan’s leadership position in the farm-to-table movement, his menu included quite a few “heirlooms ” and “locals.”
What did the donors get for their money? Led by Nischan, the Dressing Room staff plated and served a three-course meal that included an heirloom tomato salad over pickled cucumbers from Nischan’s own garden; heirloom Connecticut chicken served with a potato tart, local bok choy dressed with a miso and agave sauce, and garnished with shaved sweet carrots; and, for dessert, pan-fried angel food cake served with local berries and honey.”
