National Guard Dinner

Last night, Governor and Mrs. Robert Bentley hosted the officers of the Alabama National Guard for a dinner at the historic Governor's Mansion.

Chef Jim Smith prepared a menu that delighted all of the senses and pleased the palate. He served four courses which are featured below. The Chef selects ingredients found in Alabama to showcase all that the state has to offer. During his selection process he travels to local farms and farmers markets to research and find quality products to serve. He, along with the Bentley's promote and support the state of Alabama, its products, and its people.
