3 yr anniversary = Chez Panisse Reservations

Just had to share the excitement.

In other news, I made a soufflé from Julia Child's Vol 1. The presentation was dramatic and the taste was amazing.

Do is conquering the world of stews. Found a fabulous new beef stew recipe.

Made Guinness cupcakes for an office party/potluck yesterday. 4 other (female) office mates and I got lost driving to the party in the Berkeley hills, the car gave out on the slippery (super steep) slopes, and it was super foggy. We had to continue on foot, each gal carrying a pot or tray of food, wandering the streets, in the fog, lost. Perfect setup for a horror flick. Thankfully, we made it.

Alright, enough procrastinating.

Enjoy Chez Panisse! When I was looking at colleges my mom and I did lunch there on our Berkeley tour.

Happy anniversary!

Wow - that is some dedication to making it to a potluck.

I hope Do is going to share this recipe.

Amazing! Does sound scary, and I want to hear about this restaurant :)

Also, I made beer bread this morning and now I know that when you say Guinness cupcakes, you mean with the beer. Yay chemistry!

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!

The closest I've been to Chez Panisse is taking a class on Sauce from a former sous-chef now at CIA.

I broke my Bernaise, which was good as she wanted to rescue one.

For the caramel candy, waiting at least overnight is necessary...you can put in the fridge for a little bit to hasten the hardening process if you like.
