    Ground Sassafras aka File Powder

    I am trying to locate some "real" ground sassafras hopefully from a source in South Louisiana. Anyone know of a place to find some?

    Pretzel ice cream

    I have made pretzel ice cream before inspired by Sam Mason and used Snyders Pretzels as well. I steeped them in the cream, then took half of the cream pureed with pretzels, strained and added back to the base. Turned out very well and pretzly

    Schwa's Quail Egg Ravioli

    I was wondering if anybody had an idea how Chef Michael Carlson creates this dish? I have not done an egg yolk ravioli before so I am unsure of the preperation to keep the yolk fluid.

    Single Shrimp Amuse Bouche

    How about Shrimp wrapped in a spanish ham with a thin slice of apple and manchego cheese skewered over the glass of champagne....trust me it should go together http://www.foodpairing.be/FoodPairable.aspx?f=Champagne you could juice a granny smith apple and marinate the shrimp in it, grill with salt and pepper, wrap in ham and place a thinly sliced piece of manchego cheese around it, skewer and serve

    Single Shrimp Amuse Bouche

    I do have the perfect service for this idea. I have a bronze patina tree with birds holding small 2 oz cups with tea lights under as warmers. I've done a similar lobster bisque with saffron added. ← You could serve the bisque in shot glasses as well with the shrimp skewered on top. You could also make some cheesy grits, spread them in a hotel pan till cool and set up. Cut out in rounds with a biscuit cutter and sear in a pan on both sides till crispy. Serve the shrimp on top with a tomato like relish or a sauce of rosemary, worchestire, veal stock and garlic.....just a thought

    Creating Tasting Menus

    I will be doing the same thing in the next couple of months as well, so I look forward to how yours goes. For meat I would go with pork belly, you can cook it ahead of time and just sear it off before dinner.

    McCrady's

    I am sorry you had that type of experience. I have never been but have been following Sean's progress on his blog and we were originally scheduled for the Blais dinner but Mother Nature changed our plans. I would have to guess that maybe it was just an off night. From what I have seen and read I feel that Sean is one of the few in the country who are redefining the whole farm to table. He and his crew have their own farm, pigs etc and he is truly interested in preserving the southern type of food AND flavor with a twist. I would say give it a second chance, I am stll waiting for the 1st chance
