An Indulgent Mediterranean 5-Course Dinner


Bacon Wrapped Pork Tenderloin

Dames Meme Hopmayer, Nancy Brussat and Barbara Glunz and Malika Ameen along with Convito Chef Noe Sanchez and Meme’s husband Gary Hopmayer not only put on a fantastic dinner for Swankalicious fundraising bid winner Dame Nancy Cassidy and her guests but also had a fantastic time doing it!

The food was delicious and the wines selected by Barbara Glunz to go with each course were perfectly matched. The setting, the flowers and the accompanying piano music created a glorious ambience.

The next day we all received an email from Nancy Cassidy. “You all went above and beyond to make last night so super-fantastic, delicious and gorgeous. Chris and I are celebrating our 28th anniversary (legal) or 33rd (including the 5 years we lived together before we got married) tomorrow. So this was just the loveliest way to celebrate with our dear friends.”
