The First Flavors of Fall!

Delicious Wagyu Tartare

The Texas food scene is about to get a whole lot cooler! Seasonal ingredients are top of mind in a gourmet meal we’ve arranged for you and someone special. Settle in at home for three courses that focus on all things fall, from a Texan beef tartare to pumpkin cheesecake, compliments of one of my favorite bakeries anywhere! Plus, a sleek, slender, and frankly, mysterious cocktail known simply as “Auburn Evening.” You in? 😉

Start with…

This terrific Wagyu Tartare [above] made with pickle, shallot, parsley, plus several key sauces (Worcestershire, hot sauce) and condiments (beer mustard), in addition to the yolk from a quail egg. ‘Tis the season! Serve on oven baked baguette slices we’ll show you how to prep like a pro.

Onto Our Entrée…

Pumpkin Cheesecake

DESSERT! Goodtaste snagged the recipe to a Pumpkin Cheesecake from one of my very favorite bakeries in Houston — Petite Sweets. Baked on a scrumptious ginger spice cookie crust.

Sip and savor! Sunburnt skies abound during autumn. Cheers to the inspiration behind our cognac-based Auburn Evening, courtesy of the cocktail craftsman at the swanky Paramour rooftop bar in San Antonio.
