In Italian, "you do it". One of the things I love is putting myself in the hands of the chef (especially if it's someone you already know). Earlier this week I went back to one of my favorite restaurants in my old home town. The chef was in the house and she knew that I like a sequence of small plates. She sent out four courses that were ridiculously good, starting with seared scallop, peach, and crispy leek. It helps to be friends with the chef of course, and I wouldn't try this at TGIFridays, but do you folks do this?
I learned this in Italy in small trattoria type places where there really is no menu. It's like just bring me what you think is good. It helps if you are non-food phobic.
