Spoon And Stable Offers French-Inspired Menu For Takeout

While we’re all being asked to remain close to home as the pandemic drags on, we can at least bring a taste of France to our dinner tables now, thanks to world renowned chef Gavin Kaysen.

For the next three weeks, Kaysen’s restaurant, Spoon and Stable, is offering a French-inspired takeout menu on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. The menu (see below) is a tribute to another world-class chef, Daniel Bouloud, who was Kaysen’s mentor.

“These are the dishes I think of most when I think of Daniel and our time together,” Kaysen said in a statement. “Cafe Boulud had four sections to the menu—he called them muses—Tradition, Seasonal, Vegetables, Voyage. In these four sections we would create a menu together. Our inspirations would range from traditional French food to studying food from Ethiopia for Voyage. It was the most fun I have ever had making a menu. I would sit in awe as I would watch Daniel flip through his handwritten recipes, a book he carried around since the age of 14. We would do this sitting in his office that overlooks the line at DANIEL. As a young chef, and chef today, it was a dream come true. This is my tribute to his creations and all he taught me then and continues to teach me today.”

Kaysen is also taking pre-orders now for a Beef Wellington Christmas dinner to go, with pickup on December 23rd. He’ll also continue his virtual cooking classes, with the new Winter Series starting in January.
