A Taste of Fall at the Chef's Table...

Well, autumn is definitely here! The ingredients shout it out loud constantly every day, and every moment. Our farmers are bringing in great, great product by the bushel. Cauliflower...Potatoes...Cress...Porcini, Chanterelle and Saffron Milky Cap Mushrooms...Apples & Beets...Salsify, Truffles and Celery Root...Pears and Crab apples. So many wonderful foodstuffs, so little time. Can't get it all in in a day's cooking. Better start the prep list for tomorrow! Recently, we had some great customers come in for yet another chef's table dinner to celebrate a special occasion. I wanted to give them a nice treat heading into this fall season. Here is the menu we cooked for them and their guests. It was an awesome dinner. I am so spoiled! Enjoy...
