Oh My! Too Much Dinner!

Last night we met 5 other couples for dinner.  We ate at Talulah's Table...a small local shop/ restaurant which I might have talked about before.  It is a year long wait for a reservation here because you have to know 6 couples who all want to spend a small fortune on dinner but not get to choose what you can was a sort of friendly business gathering so I knew some people and did not know some people. 

It's a lovely shop by day filled with unconventional foods.  It's the place where Den accidentally bought a box of pasta for $ day it's filled with coffee and tea drinkers, scone eaters, chatters.  You can pick up cheeses and breads and oniony fig jams and all natural beeswax birthday candles.  It's fun and lovely and a place to shop for specialty foodie stuff.  At dinner Talulah's becomes candle lit and music filled and almost enchanted.  You just hang your wraps on store hooks and tuck your purse on a shelf somewhere.  Each course is announced and explained...and presented...there are lots of small courses.  Last night we had handmade gnocchi with spring green pesto and and duck...ick...I slipped mine to Den...and the cheeks of something...and lots more...breads are all hot and different and know where every local egg and pat of butter came from.  You bring wine...Talulah's gives you suggestions and we had a different small vineyard wine...with every course.  One of the wines was so reserved we won't ever have it was fun and lovely and today I have a headache and I want carbs...I am a very moderate drinker, too.  I just usually take sips but this was a lot of!  

Last night's menu...

This was my cheese course...after cheeses we had baby buttermilk donuts on a tart purée of fruits and ice cream...lavender,  I think!  

And then we had handmade Truffles...and we each got a cookie to take home...Den just ate mine!

And...that was dinner!

Today we are binge watching tv...we should have run errands but we are too lazy!

Have a wonderful holiday weekend!


  1. I'm not an adventurous eater so I'm not sure that I would like that.

  2. Wow, impressive dinner! Thanks for I feel decadent just thinking about this.

  3. Wow, that's some dinner! Or should I say feast :)
    I should bite my tongue...and please don't take this the wrong way... but I grimaced at reading veal cheeks. With all those courses they could've left that one out, but that is just my personal opinion and I'm glad you had a wonderful meal. So many other yummy-sounding foods to try! I would love to visit a place like that in the daytime for some scones and tea.

    1. No problem...normally I would not touch those two foods but I was kind of stuck...I gave them to my husband...

  4. I bet everything was delish. Duck is great when it's cooked correctly.
