manresa iron chef dinner?
An acquaintance went and emailed the following..
Everything was excellent. Each dish had at least one distinctive cabbage component - usually subtly flavored in a way that made it much more interesting than "just cabbage" - plus David's usual inventive combination of protein and other flavors. Choosing wine to bring seemed impossible, so I had the pairing, which was mostly quite good, and in one case inspired: the Cabbage Patch (the only dish that was mostly cabbage) with 00 Marcel Deiss Gewurtz St-Hippolyte - very unctuous and a little sweet, which was a perfect counterpoint to the cabbage.
There's been enough interest that they added two more dates. Unless you really hate cabbage, or feel that a meal without foie gras just isn't worth eating, I don't think you'd be disappointed.
Hubby & I went last Sunday (24th) for our anniv. We were really impressed similar to previous experiences here and I agree it was more than "just cabbage". I don't have time to do a full review, but would wholeheartedly recommend it. And I recommend watching the episode right b4 the meal so you don't have to worry about paying attention while it's described, you can just absorb the scent & sight of it (and set up your camera shot) before digging in.
