Nice write-up of the first Kings Dominion Halloween Haunt VIP meal this past Saturday from the CP Food Blog site. Includes a few pictures of the decorations, table settings, servers, and most importantly, the food.

The article includes this coming Saturday's menu (Oct 4th). I thought some of you were planning to attend the Haunt VIP meal this Saturday, so I assume you knew already what the menu would be. (Did the Park contact you yet for food allergies or for vegetarian menu?)

Here is the link to the CP Food Blog Haunt VIP Meal:

Thanks for the write-up, Nic. I've been itching to read a review of this dinner. I agree that the fare seems more "accessible", but there still seem to be nice little touches of creativity all over the menu. I think the salad looks especially nice.

My one complaint is the presence of "truffle" oil, which I cannot bear. I've never had fresh white truffles, which are extremely expensive, but I love black truffles, having had some incredible bits of truffle in France and occasionally cooking with them when Dean & Deluca had fresh ones, and I had the money to waste. But "truffle" oil actually contains no truffle at all, nor does it taste like truffles. It's a combination of olive oil and a thiol-ether chemical called 2,4 dithiapentane. All up-and-coming chefs should just say NO to it.

This is your brain on 2,4 Dithiapentane.
Any questions?

Yeah. Where can I score some 2,4 Dithiapentane? I was at a Phish cover band show in 2012 the last time I two-foured it. Believe the hype, people. This shit is legit.

I guess you'll need to sweet talk the Chef up at KD :)

Now look at what I've started.

You do not want 2,4 Dithiapentane in concentration. Since it's a thiol (a molecule with a sulfhydryl group), it smells horribly of old garlic.
