Castle Hornberg (Germany) Chef's table dinner at FABI+ROSI

We enjoyed a five course meal prepared by Master Chef Gerhard Penitz, of the Castle Hornberg, Germany.

The Lighting in the back room is warm, yellow-orange even.  It takes a lot of manipulation to get the pics of food to render true colors.

Finally busted out the iPhone flashlight for an impromptu studio lighting technique.  The venison filet was fantastic!  It was all delicious and we enjoyed some witty banter with Chef after the meal.  Chef Wolfgang of Fabi+Rosi had apprenticed at the Burg Hornberg, the two chefs had a long history together.  We felt priviliged to be there for this reunion of sorts, like extended family that gets all the benefits of great food and wine.

The single decorative item in the back room is this large white buck.

Chef Wolfgang translated for Master Chef Penitz, explaining how he was traveling around, checking up on his past apprentices.  Ensuring they were still doing things right!
