A note about serious food allergies
This meal is much like a Tesla or a Rolex; it's a fancy pants, luxury meal, where only the very cream of the crop are able to taste such divine decadence. You, my friends, are that cream of the crop, in for a rich treat with soft, delicate gnocchi sauced in an umami-rich sauce of mushrooms and spinach. You've reached the top, “you're the Coliseum. you're the top! you're the Louver museum.” (Thank you, Cole Porter.)
