iPhone NYC: Balthazar Restaurant
When I snap a quick, flashless iPhone photo at a restaurant, I know the odds of it making it to the blog are very slim. The lighting is off. The textures are flat. I can almost feel the chef and waitstaff cringe with the release of my shutter. It’s a bad photo of great food…
The Warm Goat Cheese and Caramelized Onion Tart from Balthazar Restaurant is different. I have to share this piece of heaven now, despite it’s aesthetically challenged appearance in the photo above.
I have been craving, dare I say dreaming, of this elegant, unassuming Hors d’oeuvre since I tasted it last month. I can’t wait to make this savory pastry and share it with you in a video!
And since I scored a copy of The Balthazar Cookbook, brace yourself for Le Cordon Betty to get a little French Bistro on you.
I wouldn’t trade my red, hard-cover, autographed Balthazar Cookbook for the world. But the internets are a beautiful place. You can find the Goat Cheese Tart Recipe here and here. Consider them the trailer for my video.
What spectacular dish have you had at a restaurant, either recently or in the past, that you are craving? Tell me in the comments…
