Your Chance Has Come at Last to Eat Boulud’s Food for Free

Just another day at the stove at Williams Sonoma.

Chef demonstrations tend to be pretty grim affairs, and the so-called “tastings” that come with it even worse. (Usually, it’s a sample of whatever horrible product the chef is currently shilling.) Tomorrow’s demo by Daniel Boulud at the Time Warner Center’s Williams Sonoma, though, will be a rare chance to actually eat the chef’s actual food. The chef is promoting The Cafe Boulud Cookbook, but there’s a bonus Bar Boulud tasting, too.

Boulud will demonstrate one of the dishes on Daniel’s fall menu, a duo of fig-leaf papillote of lamb leg and roasted lamb loin with fennel confit and fresh figs — exactly the kind of autumnal, old-school French country cooking that’s at the root of his best work. And get this: They’ll be passing out samples of the charcuterie from the soon-to-open Bar Boulud. Word from the master is that he’ll be giving out pâté grand-père (a country-style terrine with chicken livers) and rabbit garrigue (a Provençal-style rabbit terrine with herbs en gelée). There will be samples for 400, so you won’t even feel like Milton from Office Space.
