pistachio aillade

etp111205 Oct 16, 2006 08:29 PM

I had a great dinner at Lucques is LA the other night -- lamb on a rosemary skewer with cous-cous, roasted nectarine, labne and pistachio aillade. Can anyone tell me how to make pistachio aillade? Thanks in advance.

    There is a recipe for pistachio aillade in the Zuni cookbook.

      Was it a thick, very nutty sauce?

        definitely nutty, although I am not sure I would call it a sauce -- a bit drier than a sauce.

          That sounds like a variation on walnut aillade, then. Substitute pistachios and pistachio oil (hard to find but exists):
