Many thanks to The Peabody Hotel for inviting us over this month to experience the new 7-course tasting menu at Chez Philippe!

We chose the vegetarian option and are happy to share a bit about that with y’all today. Chef de cuisine Keith Clinton + the team there made this experience so fun and memorable.

I’d recently spent time at Chez photographing new menu items & am thrilled to share my Justin Fox Burks Photo Studio images of some of the stellar, creative, and seasonal dishes  that I was then able to try during dinner w/ Amy the other night.

We loved the tomato salad accented w/ yuzu and flowers (pictured here), the milk bread course w/ peach butter, chanterelle mushrooms in squash purée, and the amuse, two tiny savory tarts with so much umami flavor. A brand-new dessert featuring tarragon ice cream, lime leaf, and coconut was so good as well. I can’t choose a favorite thing because we were both just wowed by all of it!

Many thanks to Kelly Brock of The Peabody for calling on me for photography, for inviting us to this amazing night, and for always being so kind and welcoming.
