SOCIETY HILL — Enjoy a three course meal of French-Moroccan cuisine celebrating designer Yves Saint Laurent in the home of Spring Mill Café chef Michelle Haines next Wednesday, April 20. The menu will consist of savory crepes with ratatouille and caviar; a lamb tagine with couscous, cates, and figs; and then sweet crepes with raspberry coulis and chantilly. For dessert round two, guests will each be equipped with a hammer and the freedom to chip away at a twelve pound block of chocolate, all the while sipping on absinthe. The party will be a small one — only eight guests total — so if this sounds like your kind of party pick up your ticket here .
