My good friend Ehsan is interning at the famed Chez Panisse - which means that he needed to take a break from prepping squid and gem lettuce, and make a proper meal. Well, I obviously invited myself over for a tasty time. Below is a Thomas Keller style chicken, golden beet/dill/goat cheese salad and a salad with the most beautiful summer produce.
His mother offered us a rose-saffron-pistaccio ice cream and it was so very very amazing. I highly recommend it but I think you can only get it at Iranian markets.
