Chobani Dinner at EVOO

Just one more HLS post, promise.

After all the Official HLS stuff was over, I went up to Meghann’s room for a little cocktail hour with some ladies.

As the conference planner, she got a suite with a pretty sweet view.

After our little cocktail hour, a group of us headed over to EVOO, an award-winning Cambridge restaurant.

Some of the lovely Chobani ladies were our hosts for the evening. Just a note here that I can’t tolerate a ton of dairy but I attended this dinner because I really like the Chobani brand and the ladies hosting the dinner.

Like the lovely Emily, their director of consumer engagement.

I also like wine. One of the wines they had to pair with the dinner was Sancerre, which I love.

Each course included Chobani in some creative way. The first course was an heirloom tomato salad with a yogurt gelee. The gelee texture made the yogurt taste almost like cheese.

The next course was a lobster succotash with vanilla Chobani. Lobster is one of my favorite foods by far, so I was really excited to see lobster on the menu, but I wasn’t crazy about any other part of this course.

What’s a blogger dinner without a little photo intermission? Oh hey Heather.

Our main course was Seared Yogurt and Spice Sous Vide Lamb Loin with Crisp Eggplant and Raita. The veal was really tender, and the eggplant was delicious. I don’t think I’ve met many fried foods I didn’t like, hence the reason I needed to start this blog…

We finished the meal with a nectarine-basil crisp with frozen berry yogurt. I’m typically way more of a savory person than a sweet person, but I finished this before Heather, sitting next to me, had barely made a dent in hers.

This was a special menu created for us by Chef Peter McCarthy, and I love that he did everything with such a light touch. The yogurt was never overwhelming in any of the dishes, but accented the other flavors in the dishes.

Thanks to Chobani and thanks to all these lovely ladies for such a fun dinner. (And thanks to Ashley for the photo.)

If you could eat a meal centered around one sort of food, what kind of food would you pick? OR if you could have one chef design a special menu, which chef? I’d pick Jose Andres; I was pretty obsessed with both Jaleo and Oyamel (long live their beef tongue tacos) in D.C.

    Wow, they did an amazing job of incorporating the yogurt in every dish without being super gimmicky about it. I will have to go here on my upcoming trip to Boston.

    How can you find out about events like this or the HLS that are open to public if you are not a blogger?

      @Becca: This event was specifically targeted towards bloggers, but the conferences are open to anyone who wants to attend. I usually find about them through other people’s blogs.
