The Pearl Stables were pack tonight at the Harlandale Education Foundation 2nd Annual Scholarship Gala. I believe about $100,000 was raised for scholarships. Chef Johnny Hernandez and True Flavors Catering prepared a wonderful meal. We started with a beautiful spring mix salad, served in a cucumber vase, with an Aged Sherry and Herb vinaigrette.
Our second course as a Beef Short Rib braised in Mexican Vanilla, Cloves and Cumin. It was served along with a Creamy Manchego and Garlic Risotto and Grilled Asparagus and Carrot Ribbons.
We finished off the meal with a great dessert, called Belle Helen. It was a sweet pear compote with pear financier and a caramel mousse on a crisp almond cookie base topped with dark chocolate drizzle and white chocolate velvet.
The evening was a total success, friends, family, business professionals, educators and alumni all came together to invest in our greatest natural resource. A Young Mind
