Cauliflower and Nutmeg Panna Cotta, infused walnut oil

We served this for our last event as an amuse bouche, but could easily be an entrée with a nice bitter salad. It's great with caviar, salmon gravalax, quails eggs, peas ......
The panna cotta : 
Take 225 gr of cauliflower sliced relatively fine (with no stalk), put in a pot with just barely enough cold water to cover,…

There is no clear recipe for what we do, however......

There is a space between -and touching both, a semi-gastronomic restaurant and a grandmother's table.

It is not a bouchon (as much as we adore a good one),

It is not a bistro (as fun and exciting as a good one is),

It is not a fancy restaurant (even though a good one is a pillar of indulgence)

But somehow, it includes all of these.

The venture is nomadic in nature so it may not always be our door we open… Continue

The importance of aperitif

Last night, while discussing the menu for our next event and thinking about canapes and welcome drinks, I was reading Aperitif, Recipes for Simple Pleasures in the French Style by Georgeanne Brennan, day-dreaming about making our own vin maison

or seasonal homemade wine, for everyday, that you can find in any given

region in France. Aaah, the pleasure and ritual of aperitif, both…

Ode to the Pig

oh little piggy, when i see you rolling in the mud and you squeal

i must confess, hungry- i do not feel

but when i see you shaved, paitently waiting for my knife

i am filled with all the joys of life

i will take your belly for confit, your breasts to roll

your hocks for soup, a menu (in my head) starts to unfold

your head for terrine, your leg for ham

your blood for sausage, mis en plas i start to plan

you truely are the perfect animal, your heart…

Chef Tony Tan as a guest?

Sometimes life is strange... Two days ago, we've watched an episode of

Anthony Bourdain, No Reservations in Melbourne, and few hours

ago...I've bumped into the very same celebrity chef Tony Tan (featured

in the episode), having cake and coffee at Nikau! He's a friend of the

owner, which is also a friend of mine... Tony Tan is in Wellington for

2 nights, as a guest chef at The Museum Hotel, but I wonder if I could

invite him to our first dinner party…
