Photoblog: Chez Panisse
First Course: Warm Goat Cheese Salad Chez Renee. The cheese had just the right amount of skill and heat added to it so it remained in a semi-solid, semi-liquid suspension. The best part was that Matt doesn't like cheese, so I gladly took it off his plate. The vegetables were perfect little jewels that were used to paint the plate and then were to be eaten. I adored the radishes.
Pan-seared king salmon with summer squash and squash blossoms. A classic example of an Alice Water dish. I say classic, because everyone has copied this concept, so I've had a production line facsimile of this dish at other places. The original helped me see why so many restaurants have copied her style of cooking.
