Tonight, Exec Chef Brian Roland had a tough crowd to please, some 40 chefs and others in the restaurant biz, as he hosted the Amercan Culinary Federation'(ACF) Caxambas Chapter of Naples And Marco Island's installation of new officers.
With 40 hungry and critical top chefs, the heat was on for Chef Brian Roland. Brian whet their appetites with passed appetizers- crisp fried goat cheese balls, and other baked treats.
He also served wonderful grilled tenderloin, and sides, such as a Swiss chard creation, poached shrimp with citrus-opal basil sauce, and organic local watermelon salad. Chef Roland earned his peers' and competitors' respect.
Fort Myers Cru's loss has been Naples' wonderful gain.
