Choices ranged from Gorgonzola crostini to baked chicken salad, pâte à choux puffs and honey chicken wings — and that was only for starters. The dessert tables featured Kentucky Derby pie, Ghirardelli chocolate mousse, seven-layer bars and glazed apple cake — to name a few. Grand Bay residents Kenny Soderblom and his wife, Leah, provided the entertainment for the evening.
