JBF Dinner: Chez Pascal

It was almost warm enough to enjoy the backyard at the James Beard House, and while some took to the outside as respite from having to manhandle your way through the hors d’oeuvres, it wasn’t summery enough for the House to fully set up drinks and appetizers outside.  But spring is blooming, and as the beautiful bouquets in the dining room were any testament, spring is on its way.

Dinner from Chez Pascal, Providence, Rhode Island

The spring bouquets – irresistible!

Terrine of goat cheese, early spring vegetables, and hard boiled eggs

Chicken drumstick stuffed with fava beans and raclette with crispy potato anna

North Atlantic halibut en papillote with ramps, fennel and spoonful of rather tart lemon, parsley and mustard

Slow roasted pork neck roll with a potato and morel gratin and buttered turnips

Lemon souffle pudding with rhubarb soup, strawberry gelee and garnished with tiny ribbons of mint

Not only did we sit in the grownup section but we were luckily not seated with some of the rather verbose dinner guests who have a tendency to force everyone to make toasts at every course.  Hurrah!
