• this weekend at madeleine bistro: “the best fruit in the world”

    July 22nd, 2010quarrygirlLA restaurants, madeleine bistro

    it’s almost the weekend, and that means madeleine bistro is getting ready to knock your socks off with another incredible tasting menu. from chef david’s blog:

    This weekend at Madeleine Bistro, we are offering a Five Course Chef’s Tasting Menu featuring the organic fruit of Etheridge Farms. I’ve known Gene Etheridge for many years, and I can say from personal experience that his fruit is the best that I have ever tried. He is also very passionate about what he does and is always eager to discuss his fruit and how he is able to bring out the best in each piece of fruit. This week, his peak fruits include “tasty treat” plums, “Santa Rosa” plums, yellow and white peaches and heirloom tomatoes. Here is the menu I created:

    Panzanella soup
    Heirloom tomato “cannoli”, basil oil

    “Tasty treat” plum carpaccio
    Pickled plums, green papaya noodles, toasted walnuts

    Grilled seitan with yellow peach barbecue sauce
    Yukon gold potato puree, grilled asparagus, shallot rings

    White peach-lemongrass dessert soup and sorbet
    Fresh berries, strawberry en gelee, mint oil

    S’mores flavors with plum ginger ale
    Chocolate ganache, graham crackers, marshmallow fluff

    sounds amazing, right?! the menu is going to be on saturday and sunday nights only, and is just $50 per person (dishes also available a la carte)! last time madeleine bistro had a tasting like this, it was $75 per person…so i highly suggest you take advantage of this low price! a quarrygirl reader went to the last etheridge farms meal and loved it so much that he wrote a wonderful review we ended up posting on the site.

    reserve a table now—i have a feeling this is gonna be an epic dinner you won’t wanna miss.
