The May, 2009, issue of Bon Appetit contains a recipe for Asparagus Salad with Parmesan Dressing from Gracie's, a restaurant in Providence, Rhode Island, where Elliot (the first born) is doing an internship. Elliot is a student in the culinary arts program at Johnson & Wales in Providence. As soon as our local asparagus pops (a modest claim: the asparagus grown in West Michigan is the best in the world), I am going to try this recipe--it sounds delicious!
Elliot is having a great experience at Gracie's. He says that the food, preparation, and service at the restaurant are amazing.
