Caesar Salad, New Years 2012 Gourmet Dinner

First of all, we’re sorry about the VERY slow release of new sandwiches and recipes, we’ve been extremely busy with other projects, but we hope to return to making at least a couple of posts per month.

Last night we had a great New Years eve dinner with our friends. It’s a tradition, and we always cook a 7-course gourmet meal, with each couple making one or two dishes, paired with a great drink/wine. As you can imagine, we’re rather buzzed at the end of the night. Since Wendie got a Thomas Keller The French Laundry Cookbook, she decided to make a Caesar Salad. The Caesar Salad was made with a crouton, which makes it a sandwich (a tiny one) in our mind!

The recipe, well, it’s too long to write (Thomas Keller’s recipes are CRAZY complicated), but you can find it in his book here: The French Laundry Cookbook

  1. I love beets and have never thought of eating them raw. Sounds deoicilus. I've been looking for a recipe for beet greens. With their beautiful dark green color I knew they had to be good for me.
