Happy Birthday Julia Child!
The famed Julia Child was a frequent guest at Four Seasons Biltmore in Santa Barbara and our very own Chef Mel Mecinas would cook for her nearly every Saturday night. Through their love of food, the two connected and became friends. When the time came to celebrate her 90th birthday, Chef Mecinas was not only invited to the event, he was given the honour of creating the second course for the star-studded affair. A photo of Julia and Chef Mel commemorating the occasion hangs proudly in his office.Join him for a special three course menu he has createdin celebration of what would have been her 103rd birthday! firstSCALLOPS EN CROÛTEsummer truffles / lobster sauceDomaine Costal 'Les Truffieres' Chablis Chardonnay entréeDUCK BREAST & FOIE GRASblack mission figs / orange gastriqueJoseph Drouhin Morey-Saint-Denis Pinot Noir dessertCHERRY CLAFOUTIScognac chantillyDr. Loosen Auslese Riesling 75 per person / 25 optional wine pairings*this menu will be served in addition to the Talavera menu*
