Kale side dish?

I have converted many who were not familiar with kale to this Raw Tuscan Kale salad from the NY Times. http://www.nytimes.com/2007/10/24/din... Toasted bread crumbs give it a great crunch and pecorino hits it with a bit of saltiness. My family is so obsessed with this salad, we've planted a bunch of Tuscan kale in our garden in France since it's not terribly easy to find there. And do try it with Tuscan rather than regular kale, which also goes by Black Kale, Cavolo Nero, or Dinosaur Kale. The leaves are more tender than the regular kale.

Rennet

Since I saw no one replied, I'll throw in my two cents. I order online from cheesemaking.com in the States. Glengarrycheesemaking.on.ca is a Canadian source you may want to try. For some cheeses, you can use Junket Rennet tablets, which may be available in Newfoundland, but they are not as trustworthy as the real thing. Happy cheesemaking!

Any Ethiopian restaurants in Halifax

While I don't think there's an Ethiopian restaurant, there is a West African restaurant on Gottigen St.

Hello,
Can anyone recommend a restaurant in Rome where we can find a great Chianina steak in the Tuscan style?
Grazie,

Special night out... with kids... near Chevy Chase or DC

Hello,

I would like to buy a gift certificate for my family members who live in Chevy Chase; they deserve a nice meal out, but I don't want to burden them with having to get a sitter. Does anyone have recommendations for a fairly nice meal that could include an infant (always quiet as long as she's being fed; I can already tell that she's going to be a future chowhounder!), and a 4 year old. I know not to expect the Ritz with kids in tow, but I also don't want to send them to a family-themed restaurant that doesn't value food above all. Any recommendations?

Thanks!

Help with wallet-friendly restaurants for a group of 12 in August

It's funny that you mention that. That's one of my favorite dinner spots in Paris.

That's a very good point that you raise. I'll revisit this question in the spring. Thank you!

Help with wallet-friendly restaurants for a group of 12 in August

Hello,

I hate to be "that person" that asks for recommendations when traveling, since the boards cover this thread repeatedly. However, my situation is specific, in that I'll have a group of 12 for four nights in Paris, and will be covering the whole bill every night. Therefore, I'd like places that are typical French bistros and brasseries that are in the area of 35E per person.

I would really appreciate any recommendations that you could give.

Merci!

-Brady
