BACON-WRAPPED, GOAT CHEESE-STUFFED PRUNES
SF CHEFS. FOOD. WINE. 2009 OPENING NIGHT PARTY
At the opening night of SF Chefs. Food. Wine. 2009, Chef Lisa Eyherabide had fantastic prunes that were wrapped in bacon and stuffed with goat cheese. Many people, including me, went back for seconds and thirds. Simple, well-balanced, and delicious, evidence of why she and Gitane restaurant are getting lots of attention.
I discovered these are available on the regular Gitane menu. They’re called “bacon bonbons,” and the prunes are sauteed and finished with anise and cinnamon port sauce. Excellent appetizer and doorway to Gitane’s Basque-inspired innovations.
- Delicious bacon-wrapped, goat cheese-stuffed prunes from Gitane.
