    I had some great Navarran dishes at Cesar on Piedmont. Didn't know it was part of a larger promotion.

    The "spicy cauliflower salad with anchovies & caper vinaigrette" was so good I've been trying to track down a recipe. Raw cauliflower thinly shaved (presumably on a mandoline) in a really strong dressing. They're having some sort of event:

        I was curious about the Navarra Gastronomy Week after reading about it in the Tablehopper last week.

        that cauliflower salad is a pretty normal rotating item on the Cesar menu i believe----i was obsessed with it last summer and made many special trips to oakland in one 2-week or so period to have it as much as possible. i never though cauliflower could taste so good.

        was able to replicate it in a somewhat reasonable way off of a cauliflower recipe in the san francisco urban league cookbook.

          Could you post it on the recipe board?
