At Table with Two of Our Top 40 US Chefs
By Sophie Gayot
Today, at the Second Annual Pebble Beach Food & Wine extravaganza, I enjoyed a dream lunch prepared by chefs Michel Richard from Citronelle in Washington, D.C., and Jean Joho from Everest in Chicago. Sponsored by Lexus, the meal was based on the king of mushrooms, the truffle. The talented pair cooked right in front of us, and even filled the tent with smoke! Here is the menu: Hors d’oeuvre Mushroom croque monsieur Smoked Salmon Terrine Chef Michel Richard Gougères Truffled Alsatian Sausage Chef Jean Joho Followed by Black Truffle Vintage Carnaroli Risotto Chef Jean Joho Katalfi Prawn with Truffle Sauce Chef Michel Richard Crépinette of Squab Wrapped in Alsace Marinated Cabbage & Truffles Chef Jean Joho Ending with, of course, by Chef Michel Richard Blueberry Cheesecake.
