GRACIOUS GOURMAND, a weekly dinner event presented by The Discerning Brute & Second Stop Cafe, is not for the weak of palate. Featuring a rotating cast of chefs specializing in avant-garde, gourmet, sustainable fare, our series aims to challenge ordinary perceptions and preparations of fine food, expose visionary talent, and celebrate conscientious hedonism.

The launch is Friday August 27th, 2010, featuring Chef Lagusta Yearwood.
Lagusta Yearwood's Six-Course, Japanese-Mediterranean Menu:

   ♦ AMUSE BOUCHE: Baked scalloped local corn in cashew cream sauce.

   ♦ STARTER: Yellow tomato aspic, red tomato aspic, green tomato aspic, and tomato essence aspic with yuzu juice, micro basil, aged cashew cheese, and smoked Hawaiian guava wood sea salt.

   ♦ SALAD: Timbale of watermelon, heirloom tomatoes, and Chioggia beets with Kalamata olive vinaigrette and amaranth chiffonade.

   ♦ ENTRÉE: "Eggplant and squash, inside and out:" Syrian-stuffed eggplant with deep-fried spaghetti squash garnish, heirloom tomato sauce, and eggplant caviar-stuffed fried squash blossoms.

   ♦ DESSERT: Local stone fruit pudding parfait with coconut cream

   ♦ DESSERT: Lemon-verbena pine nut cookie sandwiches with creamy fruit fillings

   ♦ DESSERT: Chocolate truffles with olive oil ganache infused with Genovese basil, rolled in corn powder
