Thanksgiving at Daniel, 11/23/2006
We went to Daniel for Thanksgiving for the fourth year in a row, my Mom and me. We were a bit unsure about how many times, but they were quite.
There were some lovely choices - the menu was not online this year, but they had Venison with Foie Gras and Galette of Turkey and walked about with some great stuffing, and Fricassée of Dover Sole with Cauliflower, Golden Raisins and a Light Brown Butter Emulsion and those were just the mains.
Peeky Toe Crab and Risotto with white truffles and Butternut-Kabocha Squash Soup with Oregon Huckleberries, Caraway and Cinnamon Marshmallow. But Mom had the crab.
She also had the turkey. I actually switched up, having the Grain Crusted Millbrook Venison with Foie Gras, Lambic Stewed Red Cabbage, Celery and Glazed Honeycrisp Apples. It was luvverly.
