First up was “Spicy Pecan Goat Cheese Rolls”, and we’ve provided you with the recipe, below.
And then the Chef and Madison prepared “Smoked Salmon on Winter Radish” and “Martini Beef Skewers”.
They prepared enough of these three appetizers for everyone in attendance to sample! And everyone seems to enjoy all three!
Throughout the event, the Chef was sharing what it was like to cook for the Capitals, his job is now in it’s 5th season – and he said that he has the “best job in the world”!
He works closely with the team’s nutritionist as well as Doctor to provide the necessary dietary components to all of the players.
He told us how nutrition has really changed over the years. He jokingly said that in the “Alan May” days, the players would be eating pizza along with 12-packs of beer!
Another guest asked Madison if he does much cooking at home, and to that he replied, “…well, I don’t have a home [in DC] yet!”
Madison was also asked who his favorite baseball team is and he said he is really enjoying getting to know the Washington Nationals!
When Madison was asked about eating while on the road, he said that he is quick to tag along with Brooks Oprik. The Chef then mentioned that Brooks is very conscience about his nutrition and he also said that “Brooks is one of the nicest people you will ever meet.”
Madison was kind enough to sign autographs and take photos with those in attendance when he finished up in the kitchen. Here he is with Capitals season ticket holder, Daniel Drummond and his daughter, Sadie.
Thank you, Monumental Sports Network for putting on another terrific VIP Member Event. We are already looking forward to the next one!
