Who was on this show:
Well to say the least it was amazing! We each had the 5 course chef's menu, which also included 2 "taste" courses. I really can't say enough about it, other than you just have to go and enjoy it for yourself. Here is the breakdown of the courses we enjoyed:
amuse bouche - sorry to say I actually don't even remember what it was...but it was good...I will comment later what it was...I gotta keep you guessing, something with a horseradish sauce...
first course - foie gras mousse, it had some rye bread crumbs on top for crunch which I think totally made the dish. the mouse was so silky and full of flavor it literally melted down my throat it was just so delicious!
second course -seared diver scallop, I think it had baby argula on top - perfectly cooked and perfectly seasoned, the best scallop ever
taste - sweet potato soup, served in a shot glass. The fh doesn't even like soup, but he liked this. It was so complex like it contained every perfect flavor of thanksgiving dinner
third course - seared quail over a chorizo ragut, it was so delicious the little bit of spice from the chorizo and the quail had a little crunch to it - perfect!
fourth course - lamb shank with truffle risotto, I have no words for this, it blew my mind
fifth course - choclate lava cake, the perfect amount of sweet to end the meal
We each had a liquor drink when we first got there, sage against the machine, highly recommended. Then we did a wine pairing with the 3rd and 4th courses. The wines were perfect and only $6 a piece! To top it all off at the end of the night they presented us with a detailed menu listing everything we had (even wines and tastes) and it had the date and our names at the top and it was signed by Kevin - talk about service!
I loved Woodfire and stronly encourage you to try it if you live in or are ever visitng Atlanta! Have you ever done a chef's tasting menu before? Were you impressed?
