I'm looking for a backup in case I can't get fresh fava beans (may not be in season yet) for my original appetizer (which was the Fava Bean Agnolotti with a Curry Emulsion from The French Laundry). I'm stumped! Any ideas would be more than welcome!
In case it helps, here's the main and dessert courses:
Slow Roasted Leg of Lamb, Lamb Jus, Flageolet Beans, Spring Vegetables (or roasted baby carrots finished with fresh herbs and mustard if the farmer's market doesn't have spring veg at this point)
Ricotta Tart, Poached Prunes, Kumquat Confit
