Eleven Madison Park Fall Tasting Menu Reveal!

{Chef Daniel Humm}

Nathan had an idea one evening - he decided to find out when Eleven Madison Park would be launching its fall tasting menu. After calling and stopping by a few times, he found out the menu would be revealed on October 7th, just a few days before my 30th birthday! Soon we were all set for a 6pm reservation.

Franny's Fusilli with Pork Sausage Ragu

I am obsessed with the Franny's cook book! I think I have made just about every pasta recipe, maybe even twice. It has been my go-to for casual Friday nights in, and cookbook recipes are even more fun to follow when you are hanging out with friends over a bottle (or two) of wine.

One of my favorite types of pasta sauce is a meaty ragu (duck, pork, lamb, etc), so when I saw this pork sausage ragu I sent it along to Nathan and suggested we try it out. Nathan picked up ingredients at Caputo's Fine Foods (fresh pasta and charcuterie!), a go-to in Carroll Gardens for all things Italian, and Staubitz, a meat purveyor in Cobble Hill.

My best friend's older sister, Arti, and I, planned a foodie trip to Chicago, and the restaurant at the top of both of our lists to visit was none other than Alinea!
