This year’s Christmas party was one for the books!
It wouldn’t be Christmas without amazing food and great company! Dr. Oltjen and his lovely wife hosted our party at their home, where we spent a relaxing afternoon enjoying a wonderful lunch followed by a gift exchange — which is always fun!
For this year’s luncheon, Chef Alfredo, a professional chef from Granada, Spain who has made his home in Kansas City prepared our lunch and while doing so, gave us a quick cooking lesson. We were incredibly lucky to be treated to his culinary creations. Chef Alfredo’s mission is to show people how simple, fresh ingredients can be full of complex flavors. And full of flavor they were. For an appetizer, we got to try Iberico ham and manchego cheese, but the real star was Chef Alfredo’s paella which he prepared with shrimp, mussels, scallops, and clams. It was amazing!!
After lunch, we had our staff gift exchange where gifts were chosen, then stolen, and in some cases, stolen back. It was all in fun as we experienced the joy of the season outside the office on a December afternoon.
Good family, Great friends, and wonderful food!
