the Rosewood Sand Hill BY EJ HEINZER, Vice Chargée de Presse THE HILLSBOROUGH BAILLIAGE'S holiday gala at the Rosewood Sand Hill hotel on December 2 was a thoroughly delightful affair. On a portico heated by mesmerizing columns of flames, attendees enjoyed fabulous canapés and refresh- ing champagne. Lively conversation and happy laughter attested to the Chaîne's special camaraderie, as guests and longtime members mingled in perfect harmony. After everyone took their seats in the formal dining room, the service team flaw- lessly presented the sumptuous meal. The courses were paired with superb wines. Executive Sous-Chef Michael Daley, who has prepared Chaîne dinners in the past, proudly explained that the produce had been procured at a farmers' market that morn- ing and that most of the other ingredients came from California farmlands. Chef Daley's specialty is crafted dishes with foraged ingredients. He also conveyed that his team was pleased by the opportunity to create a unique holiday menu for confrères. The group was honored to be joined by Wine Director Paul Mekis, who not only directs the wine pro- gram at the Rosewood Sand Hill hotel in Menlo Park but at all Rosewood properties. His overview of the evening's wines piqued the interest of all.
