Another Idea for the Bro’s B-Day

June 22, 2012 § Leave a comment

My bro is moving to Long Island, he’s going to do a fellowship at SUNY Stony Brook. We just came back from Paris, and he was really looking forward to eating just one thing – Blanquette de Veau from Chez Denise in the heart of the belly of Paris on 5 Rue de Prouvaires. Unfortunately they did not have it that day. Instead we had am amazing gigantic brochette of lamb, “haricots du mouton,” huge slabs of foie gras, snails and a lovely medium rare salmon in mustard sauce, with the obligatory heap of frites, all seasoned with a big pot of sel guerande and washed down with bottle of burgundy. This was probably O’s favorite meal of the trip. But my brother still longed for that Blanquette de Veau, so I’m thinking I might make it for his birthday this year… though it would really be more appropriate for a X-Mas dish.

This recipe is from the NY Times

This recipe is from Anthony Bourdain, now I’m tempted to do this one, since my brother did first cultivate this hunger by watching Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations episode on Paris, but it’s enriched with flour, and I prefer reduced sauces like the one above.

I will also consult the Larousse Gastronomique.
