I treated myself to a wonderful lunch at Chez Panisse today. My son, Michael, had to work, so I went there alone. For a starter I had celery sunchoke soup with turmeric. The entree was pan-fried petrale sole with cabbage, celery root, and caper butter. For dessert I had persimmon pudding with chantilly cream. I can't remember the name of the wine. There were lots of people in the restaurant and I was too self-conscious to take photos of my food. Maybe I'll get bolder after I've been blogging longer.
