New Spring Menu at the Mansion

Now that it’s spring, I guess I’m going to start blogging again! And, the Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek is introducing new menus. They’ve got cocktails perfect for the patio like the ginger-ita, Texas sangria, and Blazing Turtle (!). Inside at the wonderful restaurant, chef Tesar is making all kinds of new things, such as soup of spring garlic, burgundy snails, and lemon chlorophyll creme fraiche and leek and curry-infused baby turbot with lime orzotto, green apple and madras curry nage (not sure what nage is. Anyone?)

Since I’m always broke, this event sounds good to me: Two times this spring, the hotel will be serving free cocktails on the patio. Let’s all meet on April 7 for Moet Champagne cocktails. (Note: this is only from 6pm-7pm, so we will have to drink quickly.) Check the website for other events.

  1. À la Nage – Cooking à la nage means poaching food, usually seafood, in a court bouillon and serving the court bouillon and the vegetables around the food as part the garniture. When making a court bouillon to use for cooking à la nage, cut the vegetables in a decorative manner, such as julienne.

  2. Great definition, Allison. Literally, “la nage” means “swim” or “swimming” in French. I think it’s fair to say that “curry-infused baby turbot with lime orzotto, green apple and madras curry nage” is swimming in something other than the aquaculture farm on which it was probably raised.
