experiment #65 - Cobaya Gabriel with Gabe Fenton at Bourbon Steak

Another experiment successfully completed! For Experiment #65, we made a return visit to Bourbon Steak in Aventura, where Chef Gabriel Fenton first cooked for us more than six years ago for Experiment #6 (can't believe it's been that long). For the first time around, in the interest of going against the grain, we encouraged Gabe to cook everything but steak. This time, we said "just cook," which was probably a good idea. Here's what he did (you can see all the pictures in this Cobaya Gabriel Fenton flickr set):

Truffle Duck Fat French Fries
Flroida Grass-Fed Beef Satay
Antelope Chili, Fingerling Potato Chips

Wianno Oysters, Ponzu, Green Apple, Rockefeller

Buffalo Sweetbreads, Celery, Pt. Reyes Blue Cheese

A big thank you to Chef Gabe, to pastry chef Patty Lopez for a delicious dessert, to wine directors Craig Teriaca and Kareem Zarwi for some excellent pairings, to all the crew at Bourbon Steak for their warm hospitality, and as always most of all, to the guinea pigs whose support makes these events possible.
