Tucked away in a quiet business park in Lake Forest, on Bake Parkway, is a fabulously elegant setting for all kinds of events and social happenings! From corporate meetings, to team-building, private parties, showers and testing of secret recipes— this is a special spot indeed. We were here for a our annual IFWTWA regional meeting and then took to cooking and making recipes inspired by New Orleans. Great fun!
