Mardi Gras at CreoLa Bistro BY EJ HEINZER, Vice Chargée de Presse LET THE GOOD times roll! New Orleans came to San Carlos on February 3 for the Hillsborough Bailliage's evening of revelry at CreoLa Bistro—the perfect venue for celebrating Mardi Gras, California style. Owner/Chef Edwin Caba went all out, decorating the restaurant with metallic gold, green, and purple foil. A large king's crown hung overhead, and beads and fleur-de-lis could be found on many sur- faces. The dining tables were resplendent with towering ostrich-feather centerpieces, sur- rounded by doubloons and other throws. Attendees arrived in the requisite snazzy party apparel, complete with masks. Chef Caba kicked it up a notch by creat- ing a collard green-goat cheese soufflé. He "bronzed" the redfish with Cajun spices and a Dijon glaze and served it with a Creole béarnaise sauce. The entrée was a reconstructed gumbo; instead of a stew, it was more à la nage , with duck confit, tasso ham, and puffed rice. Pierre Domaine Amadieu Gigondas le Pas de l'Aigle 2012 paired well with the main course. Awarding a certificate of merit to Chef Caba and presenting Chaîne pins to staff members was a reward- ing way to close the festivities.
