Every Christmas Eve my family and I eat at Wolfgang Puck’s restaurant, Spago, in Beaver Creek, CO. We have great memories of family and food at the restaurant, and tonight’s dinner was made extra special by a visit with Wolfgang.
Prior to visiting with Wolfgang, we enjoyed an incredible meal that included pretzel rolls, handcut taglietelle with porcini mushrooms, tuna tartare in sesame cones, pork Wienerschnitzel and a creme fraiche pancake with organic strawberries. Needless to say, the food was outstanding and complemented the inviting ambiance of this restaurant that is nestled within a ski resort.
Spago was selling Wolfgang’s new cookbook, Wolfgang Puck Makes it Easy: a Step-by-Step Recipe Collection for the Home Cook, and Wolfgang was kind enough to personalize a copy to add to my growing collection. I look forward to testing many of the recipes in the book and highlighting the best of the best here on Just a Taste.
Happy holidays to everyone!
