chez panisse

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey, i just got back from Chez Panisse. What a meal! Started with panzanella, and my friend had a beet and avocado salad. next course, a pizza with nettles and wild greens. For entree, I had a summer cassoulet with duck confit, sausage, and fresh beans. My friend had a polenta cake that was put in the wood burning oven with haricot verts, chanterelles (hi shroomgirl), and arugula. We had 3 desserts: a lemon creme brulee with gingersnaps, a bittersweet chocolate pave with chantilly creme, and a nectarine raspberry cobbler. I also had a Bandol Rose. My friend had a tisane--an infusion made with fresh mint and lemon verbena. It was a wonderful meal.

I remember Chez Panisse from 8years ago....UMMMMMM Acme breads, nicoise olives on the table, grilled tuna salad nicoise, mixed berry pie. I walked into the cafe for lunch on a whim and actually got seated.

Hey, what are ramps? I saw that ingredient in one of Charlie Trotter's books. I've never seen it up close and personal.

Hi cookm
Ramps are wild leeks, very thin,only around in the spring (out east)very delicate leek-garlic flavour.
