5.18.12: True Bleu

As they say in the funny papers, you have to get back on the horse that threw you so today Julie treats me to a Market Tour/Market Tasting/Culinary Demonstration at none other than Le Cordon Bleu. By the end of this six-hour extravaganza of fresh French cuisine we are chortling like Julia Child, completely delirious on asperges sauvages with hollandaise and caviar, blood sausage, ash-dusted cheese, cherry tomatoes, black truffles, chervil, quail eggs, pork rillettes, ripe melon, rhubarb tart with almond cream, and about a thousand other tasty delights… Although Victor made us nervous at times, under the capable eyes of Chef Patrick #1 and Chef Patrick #2, no chickens were dropped on the floor during the making of this blog post!

    Thank you for being my partner in crime today. My stomach still hurts from laughing. Or maybe it hurts because I ate all of that food. Keeping looking for 101Sunrises…
