Longtime Chef Bruce Naftaly and owner of Le Gourmand knows a thing or two about the comforts of French cooking. Known as one of the father’s of Northwest cuisine, his local take on French classical cooking gave us the powerhouse French restaurant that graced Ballard for years. Join Bruce as he steps into our little Ballard kitchen to share his love of food and cooking. On the menu: Soupe au céleri-rave (celery root soup with cognac); salsifis au gratin (salsify gratin with comte cheese); filet de truite saumonée pochée aux champignons sauvages (poached steelhead filet with a wild mushroom sauce); and sorbet de coings et poire (quince and pear sorbet).
