The aroma it gave forth was not only that of beef-juice-smoking like incense, but the energetic smell of tarragon with which it was impregnated and the few, very few, cubes of transparent, immaculate bacon in the larding. The rather thick slices, their velvety quality guessed at by every lip, rested languidly upon a pillow made of a wide slice of sausage, coarsely chopped, in which the finest veal escorted pork, chopped herbs, thyme, chervil ... But this delicate triumph of pork-butchery, cooked in the same broth as the beef, was itself supported by ample cuts from the breast and win fillets of farm chickens, boiled in their own juice with a shin of veal, rubbed with mint and wild thyme. And, to pop up this triple and magnificent accumulation, behind the white flesh of the fowls ... was the stout, robust support of a generous layer of fresh goose-liver simply cooked in Chambertin. The arrangement was repeated again, in the same alternating order, forming distinctly separate parts, each marked by a boundary of assorted vegetables cooked in the broth and then slightly warmed in butter; each guest was to extract, in one stroke, between spoon and fork, the quadruple enchantment which was his share...."

You still have some work to do, bro.

Looks great! Soup/onion/Comté looks very good.

I had some chicken/broccoli/red pepper/green curry/crème fraîche type of thing

Honestly, I do not think I would have known the difference if the foie gras had been poached in a pinot noir. You flambé the Chambertin, anyway, which I think does away with most of its aromatic qualities. The slight bitterness imparted to the foie gras from the wine is certainly noticeable, though, and I think it works quite well.

+1.

Next time, just use an AOC Borgogne.

I'm assuming you mean a basic or cheap pinot noir (as in the AOC Bourg I suggested above) as G-C is made from Pinot Noir.

also, bought a vat of vegetables from the farmer's market on Saturday. After that, lunch was some turnips with sage.

You assume right.

Anyway, here is the recipe:

seems like he shows a fancy bottle of Burg at the beginning, poaches the foie, and then at the end while he is plating you see that same bottle of G-C but it is unopened. eh.gif

It's possible he had already poured a bottle into the pot. I don't doubt he is cooking with GC. The restaurant (Le Meurice) has capon poached in Château d'Yquem on the menu for New Years.

how much Sauternes do you suppose is needed for this? The only thing that would make this plausible is the 980 Euro price tag for the dinner.




I'd be tempted to try the poached foie gras using a small serving of the d'Artagnan foie with black truffles that I can easily get at the grocery store next to me. And I'd use a basic AOC bourgogne.

Well, it depends how it is being done. Poached can be a synonym for sous vide, in which case, you would not need very much of it to achieve the desired effect. If he is poaching breasts, or whole capons, in a pot like he is with the foie gras, then I don't know. Maybe the restaurant has some sort of excess, or the hotel can just afford to do this kind of stuff. In the case of the foie gras, I am not sure how much it is for taste, and how much it is simply for show.
