Ooh-la-la at Canlis

Lunch a couple of days ago at Canlis. Straightforward menu: a salad, a small steak, "apple pie." The genius was in the execution: the salad was garnished with toast points spread with tapenade and white anchovies. The steak was an unbelievably flavorful filet from Misty Isle Farms on Vashion Island [Black Angus, aged 21 days]. And the dessert was a clever tarte tatin paired with vanilla ice cream.

Credit goes to the French Government Tourist Office for hosting this delightful event, which showcased wines from Provence and, by its very nature, promoted French joie de vivre.
