I'm sitting in the office at our catering company hearing the plans of staff members for the weekend. One lucky person is heading up to the Sierras in this beautiful weather. What comes to mind for me... Moody’s Bistro, yes always food.
Moody’s Bistro is a great restaurant in Truckee that I adore. I often joke about driving 3.5 hours for dinner, but really it isn't a joke. When we travel to Tahoe or Reno I plan the time we leave to balance with the time that we can eat at this restaurant. In the winter they serve a wonderful fondue that will melt away your cold and warm you to the soul. Served with great crusty bread. The best part is always the final crusty bits at the bottom.
They also have my absolute favorite dish, Foie Gras with French Toast! I am an avid animal lover and avoid foie gras most of the time; however this is one time that I cannot pass it up. The seared foie gras is cooked to perfection and served on a delicate brioche French toast and completed with a seasonal fruit compote selection. Why are the best things so bad?
It brings to mind another favorite dish, a southern classic fried chicken and waffles. Crisp fresh waffles with buttermilk fried chicken on top, served with warm maple syrup. This happens to be my nephews favorite birthday dinner.
