The Culinary Institute of America (CIA) opened The Restaurant at CIA Copia in Napa California, and Gratitude Gourmet experienced a great Dinner this week!
The Restaurant Concept offers Tapas/Dim Sum Style Dining with a variety of options to choose from.
I chose a glass of Luna wine and these vegetarian options, and asked the Chef if a special vegetarian option could be prepared and he prepared 2 special delicious dishes: Roasted Cauliflower with pine nuts and raisins, and Mushroom Tartine with woods, trumpet, and chanterelle!
. Three Spreads, rosemary flatbread with Harissa Hummus, Eggplant, mint and cucumber yogurt
. Romaine hearts, Meyer lemon goddess
. Roasted Califlower with pine nuts and raisins
. Charred Carrots, cumin yogurt
. Mushroom Tartine . Woods trumpet and chanterelle
. Creme Fraiche Ice Cream
** As a Tip sit at the Bar watching the Chefs work their Magic! Cheers!!
