|Last night we enjoyed dinner at Villa Mozart in downtown Fairfax, VA.|
We began with several appetizers, including a platter of salumi.
|Miriam and Alice waiting for dinner.|
|Main courses included stuffed quail (above)|
and rack of lamb with small timbales of polenta,
|Tiriamisu: imaginatively presented.|
|"Finnoccio" -- tiny carmel topped pana cottas with a little|
scoop of ice cream, sauces, and slivers of fennel.
|Earlier in the day we were again at the National Gallery of Art. Miriam and Alice were not very interested|
in the only DaVinci painting in North America, visible just behind them.
Happy anniversary! The rack of lamb looks so yummy – lamb is one of my favorites and not easy to find in the South. I also copied your chocolate pudding as I made one this week that was not too tasty. I bought a second-hand copy of “Remembrance of Things Paris – Sixty years of writing from Gourmet” edited by Ruth Reichl. Have you read it? It has short articles, not all on food, and they are quite good.
Happy Anniversary!!!! I covet some Finnoccio after that picture and description. I would love to be touring the National Gallery with you!
