Dear La Degustation,

I have to thank you for broadening my horizons. You made me like cauliflower.

Sincerely yours, always and forever,

Seriously though, I’m pretty sure I still hate cauliflower unless La Degustation makes it. I’ve been continually attempting to eat cauliflower since this day and it always sucks. I keep ordering it at nice restaurants and moments later wanting to slap a chef. I once ordered a cauliflower foam soup from a Bib Gourmand restaurant in Vienna that was appalling.  I wanted to grab them by the ear and drag them across the border to chef Oldřich Sahajdák so they can get a firm talking to and perhaps even a back hand.

What the fuck did they do to their cauliflower to make it so damn good? I wish I knew. Oldřich, you are my hero!

La Degustation is one of three restaurants in Prague who have been rewarded a Michelin star, so they’re in the big league. Before we moved back to the states, Dave and I made a point to try all of them, and I can confidently say that La Degustation reigns supreme. They take a lot of pride and care in sourcing their ingredients locally and ethically and the staff draws inspiration for their dishes from traditional Czech cuisine. Personally, I think they manage to take Czech cuisine out of the dark ages and into the future. This restaurant has managed to take a very heavy style of cooking to a very light place and somehow make ingredients that are normally intimidating light as a feather. I don’t understand how they do it, but every detail is brilliant from the tasting menu to the amuse-bouche to the wine pairing. It’s a positively scintillating dining experience.

There’s no point in walking you through the menu as virtually everything on the menu is seasonal, but I can say, without a doubt, that if you choose one fine dining experience while you’re in Prague that La Degustation should be it. Period.

    Wow, love the commentary here. I actually like cauliflower. It does lean toward giving some intestinal discomfort.
    I’ve noticed cauliflower now in the frozen food section termed as ‘Riced’ Cauliflower. So progress has been made here for those that want to reduce carbs.
    I just want them to take away the ‘gas’!!!

    Hope you laughed!
