I'm still digesting some of that food. It was great and SO rich.

I'll certainly be hitting you up for the liberal recipe for the pate and the flamiche.

The flamiche was easy. Saute 3 lbs of sliced leek whites in butter until they're falling apart and then add a cup or so of cream and three egg yolks, salt, pepper, and a bit of nutmeg. Stir this up and add it to a blind baked pastry shell. If I do it again, I'll try it with a tart pan -- mine's shorter than a pie plate and would allow me to use less of the egg/cream mixture, which made the tart less leeky and probably too rich.

Oh, i put some nutmeg in the crust too.

For an easy dish, the flavor was outstanding.
