As promised — although a day late — here’s the menu for the birthday dinner I cooked on Saturday. All dishes are from The French Laundry Cookbook. In order of service:
That’s French for cheese puffs, y’all.
A recipe chosen in part to make use of my recently-purchased Perigord truffles.

So that’s the menu. Dish-by-dish- breakdowns to follow.
