There is a new chef in town and he is ready to rock and roll! Chef Stuart Tracy is back from a stint in Charleston and clearly happy to be home. At a recent media dinner, he regaled guests with some fantastic dinner deliciousness and I was lucky to be invited to participate. I hope the images below do justice but you must go visit him and check out what he has in store at Parish. Our evening included family style first course, entrees for the second accompanied by shareables and then family style dessert. We had a lovely Nicolas Potel , Macon Villages 2013 white and Jean Francois Merieau , Le Bois Jacou 2013 red wine keep us company for dinner and our desserts were ably partnered by Evolucio Tokaj Late Harvest, 2012 in the cutest ever dessert wine glasses I have seen in forever! My favorites of the night were pretty much anything with a nice juice/jus to the dish - which seems to be the chef's specialty. So if you try the heirloom tomato salad burrata with mint and grapefruit, the mussels in mustard saffron brother and fennel pollen, jumbo flounder or roasted chicken, you will know exactly what I am talking about. Missing from the pictures are the mussels and caramelized okra - disappeared too soon to get a picture in time!
