salad of endives with crispy potatoes, basil, dijon, pancetta and poached egg
@ blackbird, chicago
Chablis from Billaud Simon is brisk, balanced, and mineral-driven. It is one of the great domaines of Chablis which dates back to 1815. This particular wine offers a nice combination of fruit and stony minerality. With its creamy texture, purity, and freshness – it paired very well with the salad of endives and our second course at Blackbird.
salad of endives, a most creative presentation
With knife and fork, our server deftly chops the salad, blending the perfectly poached egg with the endives and pancetta, creating a silky dressing and reducing the charming potato basket to crisp crouton-like chards.
