A table for two at Saturne…

First, sea bass sashimi. Beets and raspberries. Green onions and sea salt.
Crab and pickled onions. Haricot ert, sorrel, and fennel.
Turbot, clam, and smoked baby potatoes. Point cabbage (which is also known as sweetheart cabbage) and oregano.
Veal and white asparagus. Mushrooms and mustard. Carrot purée and purple spinach.
Ribbons of comté (aged 24 months). Heaven.
A chocolate dish composed of mint ice cream, torn bits of plush dark chocolate cake, and soft whipped cream.
And some of the best madelines I’ve encountered. Honey-almond o_O
