The soup for the October tasting menu may be the best soup I've ever had!
This course really hits all of the flavor notes you could ever ask for! It is sweet, savory, herbaceous, earthy, and slightly spicy. I felt as though I could identify all components listed on the menu: parsnip, apple, truffle brie, and rosemary oil, and they go together so we'll even if they sound a bit odd together. The truffle brie was really incredible! Make sure you stir it up so you can get that incredible truffle flavor in each spoonful. I also want to give them huge props for making this incredible brie in house. We actually ended up buying some cheese to take home (this will be in a later review).
I'm so glad this was included in the tasting menu, because I'm not sure I would have known a soup with apple and parsnip could be so tasty.
I think @jonok summed it up nicely: "It's like a cheese board in soup form!"
