Chef demonstrations tend to be pretty grim affairs, and the so-called tastings that come with it even worse. (Usually, its a sample of whatever horrible product the chef is currently shilling.) Tomorrows demo by Daniel Boulud at the Time Warner Center's Williams Sonoma, though, will be a rare chance to actually eat the chefs actual food. The chef is promoting The Cafe Boulud Cookbook, but there's a bonus Bar Boulud tasting, too.

Boulud will demonstrate one of the dishes on Daniels fall menu, a duo of fig-leaf papillote of lamb leg and roasted lamb loin with fennel confit and fresh figs exactly the kind of autumnal, old-school French country cooking thats at the root of his best work. And get this: Theyll be passing out samples of the charcuterie from the soon-to-open Bar Boulud. Word from the master is that hell be giving out pt grand-pre (a country-style terrine with chicken livers) and rabbit garrigue (a Provenal-style rabbit terrine with herbs en gele). There will be samples for 400, so you won't even feel like Milton from Office Space.
