    ^ Huh, Robuchon enunciates really clearly when he speaks. My French is incredibly rusty now and I was always bad at aural comprehension, but I can still sort of follow along.

    I finally got a chance to go to L'Arpege for the lunch surprise tasting menu. Everything about the meal was fun. Over 3 hours, 20+ plates, and each dish had that little spark of genius that just made you smile when you ate it. The price is also a steal considering that I think I got just as many courses as the people getting the fixed menu, just less canonical stuff. Honestly this is the only tasting menu I've had that's exceeded my expectations, by far.

    Only small disappointment is I wish I could speak French because Passard was constantly in the dining room chatting with the regulars and even French speaking one-timers. I did not get those strawberries. [​IMG]

    Edit: here's the menu, from memory:
    Menu “Le Déjeuner des Jardiniers”
    • Amuse-bouche: vegetable tartelettes (quince, celery, apple)
    • Second amuse-bouche: puff pastry with swiss chard
    • House-made bread with butter
    • Gaspacho (tomato) with celery mustard ice cream
    • Beetroot in gel of sweet wine and cacao
    • Multicolored vegetable ravioli with celery consommé
    • Red pepper soup with a spoonful of ham flavored cream
    • Beetroot sushi with fig oil
    • Onion gratin topped with quince
    • Baby cabbage wrapped shrimp in Parmesan soup
    • Tomato pie with zucchini flower **favorite**
    • Thinly sliced pear and mushrooms
    • Beetroot tartare with horseradish cream
    • Mashed potato with coulis of red wine
    • Squid with minestrone of vegetables
    • Dover sole, celery purée, white wine sauce/foam, chives - that purée was excellent and tasted nothing like celery
    • Mignardise
    • Pastry with ice cream and (separate) cherry tomato stuffed with rhubarb (I think?)
    • Vanilla ice cream puffs
    • Puff pastry with apple and raspberry filling
    • Crème caramel

    Just discovered this CCTV English series "Discovering Chinese Cuisine":

    Shot quite well and very informative, and it really shows how complex Chinese cooking is, something that I feel is hard to find / never explained, even in China. There are multiple parts, I just linked the knife one cause it looks really cool.

    Man I never knew this thread existed.

    Happy to not be eating vegan after a week of it. Dont get me wrong, the food was tasty but my insides couldnt handle it. I was up to 3-4 movements a day over my usual 1.

    Edit: my wife just made some veggie farro thing with tofu :fu:

    Cool! I got some smoked salmon to eat with goat cheese and it wasn't as good as I hoped. I have some olive tapenade on hand so this will be great.

    Just tested my Anova for the first time. I'm going to call this a success.
