Mother’s Day was everything French at The Clubhouse at Lake Sconti

Crepes, crepes and crepes along with every French food item one would want because it was brunch in Paris for Mother’s Day.

Chefs Hector Rosano and Gerard Monte were busy the week before creating something for everyone’s taste. Beautiful large arrangements of spring flowers and even a cardboard Eifel Tower created the mood for mothers of several generations – grandmothers, mothers and soon-to-be-mothers with children of all ages, including a seven-week old baby.

Two long buffet tables began with a charcuterie selection. Gerard Monte’s signature salad, asparagus and a pasta salad led up to three hot containers with crepes stuffed with shrimp, asparagus and chicken. A cup of tomato or French onion soup was offered for starters. There were individual quiches and beef bourguignon too, but a favorite was the croque monsieur (a fancied ham and cheese sandwich found on the streets of Paris).

A corner of The Black Bear Pub featured Chef Ernest flaming crepes to order plus a tower of pastel macrons, beignets and crème brulee for the taking. The children of the day were not forgotten. A table in the hallway was filled with cookies and chocolate milk.

Three hundred people were served, and the clubhouse staff received rave reviews from those visiting for the day Big Canoe honored mothers.
