"My wife and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary last summer

the Burgundy Shallot Sauce with it was simply the best that I have
Credit for the cooking goes to chef David Watt who apprenticed at
The Ritz Hotel in London, England, and then came home to work at
Sansoucci in the Sutton Place Hotel before opening The Pine Apple Inn
in Unionville in 1991 with James Horner and Allan Bell. They describe
the style of cooking here as "a mixture of old and new".

Editor's note: For those of you who wonder what an Aberta steak is, I
encourage you to substutite a Texas steak if you can't get the Alberta
version [ real thing :-) ]. Both are mighty good snackin'
ps. Happy 25th Anniversary Al, I hope you and your sweetheart have
another 25 or 50 together.
