Each season any number of food magazines list
top chefs selections for their seasonal menu.
I would like to start that practice here on Cheftalk.com.
Over the year I have noticed chefs posts coming from all over the world. I am sure many of us would love to know what the best selling menu item is on the other side of the world!
Any thoughts?

check out my recipe in the cheftalk.com recipe file, for pineapple, apple & sour cherry strudel. it calls for caramelized pineapple with no sugar!

baby is groovy.
thanks for asking!

I'm going back to work in a month and need to come up with new menu iitems. What's everyone serving?

I wanted to do a souffle of dark chocolate and violet,
a nut "tart" in the style of a tartan, grilled or stir fried fruits with ice cream and a frozen mousse with citrus and taquila.

PS does any one know where to find Violet extract?

The chocolate with violets sounds so unique. Just today I made some chocolate-flecked butter tuiles, and I plan to fill them with a very light strawberry mousse. I am in Stamford, Connecticut. I think I'm pretty close to where you are, M. Brown. Yes?
