I have so much to post about from this past weekend's visit with my sis, but here I am again at my favorite Ann Arbor restaurant. This time around it's a Mardi Gras tasting dinner. Jealous? You should be!
Can't say I've ever had snails before that I liked so much. Well executed bourguignon. Fabulous house made puff pastry.
Coush-coush (as in cushion) - a traditional fried bread made to sop up sauces. According to my Time Life: Creole and Acadian cookbook, this can also be served with hot milk and sugar. Would love to try that version one day for breakfast.
The best gumbo on earth - but that's not news.
So much goodness on one plate, it's hard to know where to start. Loved the chicken rochambeau. (rock/paper/scissors - or nut kicking, yikes!). Also I had not ever tried a mirliton. Awesome texture and flavor.
Crawdaddy boil - suckin out the heads if you're brave.
Forgot to get a shot of dessert. You get the picture. A culinary adventure.
Bravo, my friend.
