A spectacular menu that should open mouths and wallets

Forget the annual fundraising barbecue or spaghetti feed--the Toledo Blade reports on an Ohio high school is planning a scholarship benefit night with a menu that's the most ambitious I've ever seen:

"...a Loire Valley Salade of asparagus spears, artichoke hearts, hearts of palm, and sweet onion cucumber relish with a raspberry vinaigrette. The entree of seared beef tenderloin topped with Alouette cheese and green peppercorn sauce will be served with pomme Lyonnaise potatoes with tornados of yellow squash and zucchini. ...

"A vegetarian option features smoked mozzarella tart, haricot vert, and oven-roasted roma tomato confit.

"For dessert, there will be a variety of petit fours, cream puffs, French pastries, and assorted coffees."

And did I forget to mention the French wine and cheese tasting beforehand?

Sacre bleu! Talk about a fundraiser folks will be talking about into the new year...
