Shaved beef tenderloin on a bed of chickory and arugula layered onto a warm herb-encrusted crostini and topped with shaved reggiano cheese: There's nothing we didn't love about this equation. Especially because this starter was a perfectly portioned bite-sized temptation. So what if my tablemates were surprised to learn "carpaccio" referred to thinly sliced raw beef. The delicate cuts of quality tenderloin were wonderfully flavored, and best with these few, simple ingredients. Yum!
