Back by popular demand, Chef M (Melissa Pelkey-Hass) will whisk us away to the beautiful sandy shores of Portugal (culinarily speak- ing). Chef M will entertain us with her humor and helpful culi- nary hints as she cooks an amazing, authentic Portuguese meal beginning with an appetizer of an olive tapanade served with warm, grilled bread. A deliciously fresh Mediterranean salad will be followed by a rich whitefish and clams in white wine and cream over roasted fingerling potatoes. Finishing our meal will be an Egg Custard Tart with Creme Brûlée Finish (Pastel de Nata).

Portugal’s unique sharing of cultures and blending of foods and old world wines will ensure that this meal will not only be delicious, but unlike any other.

Presenter and Chef: Melissa Pekley-Hass was born with a whisk in her hand. Her craft has earned over 320 State Fair Blue Ribbons, titles of Fleishman’s Yeast Baking Champion, Hidden Valley Ranch Recipe Winner and the Chicago Cutlery’s Sandwich National Grand Champion.
