What did you eat last night for dinner? - Page 1600

post #23986 of 24805
I had that salmon baked in clay with figs the other night. Unbelievably good.

i've got both. the daniel book is mm-type stuff. 10 hours of work to get 4 small plates. but beautiful, and the techniques are terrific. my taste (which i think everyone knows by now because of my endless jeremiads) leans much more to the cafe boulud book, which has the additional qualification of being written by my old buddy dorie greenspan, who can make the most impenetrable recipe practical (she also does pierre herme's pastry books).

also, if you like that kind of thing, i've also got on my desk the new books from Manresa, Coi, and Anne-Sophie Pic. all are very beautiful to look at. good season for cookbooks.

Coi is kind of stupid. Manresa I like a lot.
post #23990 of 24805
the books or the restaurants?
post #23991 of 24805
the restaurants. haven't see the books. probably would not get much use out of either book, would check out Manresa's though. I could never go back to Coi and that would be cool. In fact, I think I never will. OTOH, if I ever wanted to increse my odds of divorce, I could take my wife there.

Coi was meh. The food, I mean. The company, the wine, the service etc were all awesome. But we got served flowers on like 6 consecutive courses.

yeah, lots of very spare plates with lots of microgreens and flowers in the coi book. manresa looks like stuff i might actually cook and would certainly enjoy eating.

Manresa is great up until the main courses start. After that it is not so great. Coi isn't great at all. Not even very good, and I have been enough times to be able to make a determination. The Pic book is kind of crappy and the dishes don't really appeal to me other than the bass with caviar. That dish is have a century old, though. I've had it for a year and looked at it last ten months ago or so.

My last meal at Manresa, the main was definitely the weakest. the two fishes were out of this world. Dessert was great too. I think we had five.

The one cookbook I have that I've enjoyed literally everything I've made from has been L'Ambroisie.

+1 I would go so far as to say that foodguy would love everything in there other than some of the flights of fancy that are obviously from the new generation.

Do any of you guys watch Gordon Ramsey's show called Master Chef Jr. with kids from ages 8-13. It is amazing to these kids cooking and doing the challenges the same way the adult chefs do.

Very talented kids... their attention to detail etc is really remarkable for their age.

This looks delicious. Is it homemade?

No, it was at Terroir Parisien. It was good and only like 15 €.
