A Birthday Dinner at Chez Panisse

Saturday, January 3, 2009

Sierra Beauty Apple and Escarole Salad with Smoked Goose Breast
Farro Soup with Kale and Olio Nuovo

Braised BN Goat Shoulder with Turnips, Artichokes, and Grilled Anchioade Toast
Spicy Wood Oven Roasted Squid with Chickpeas, Fennel Cilantro, and Meyer Lemon

Churchill Brenneis Orchard Kishu Tangerines and Flying Disc Ranch Barhi Dates

A small scoop of Clementine sorbet

I should remember what we drank, but I never do. I get so enchanted by the first glass of champagne that the letters on the lables of the bottles of red and white wine placed on the table all swirl together. But, needless to say, it was all so beautiful, perfect, and good.
