Hey, i just got back from Chez Panisse. What a meal! Started with panzanella, and my friend had a beet and avocado salad. next course, a pizza with nettles and wild greens. For entree, I had a summer cassoulet with duck confit, sausage, and fresh beans. My friend had a polenta cake that was put in the wood burning oven with haricot verts, chanterelles (hi shroomgirl), and arugula. We had 3 desserts: a lemon creme brulee with gingersnaps, a bittersweet chocolate pave with chantilly creme, and a nectarine raspberry cobbler. I also had a Bandol Rose. My friend had a tisane--an infusion made with fresh mint and lemon verbena. It was a wonderful meal.
