Surprisingly great. I also wasn't sure how much I was going to like it, but it started to make sense as I was putting the dish together. First, the parsley oil with the touch of garlic, and then the broccoli, which married incredibly well with the truffle. Of course, I did pause briefly before adding a few tablespoons of chopped white truffle to a bowl of broccoli, but it really worked. Then the sweetness of the scallops. Really incredible and unusual dish. That book has yet to fail me once. However, the poularde was my favorite dish tonight.

Oh, that Dory dish was fantastic. You have to use like 60 dollars worth of saffron in the braising liquid, though. The sauce with the anise is haunting.

Nice, I will try the Dory.

I'd like to. I think Matt was trying to figure out whether the foie gras is pre-cooked or not. The book says to use raw--I think AEK used raw, and it kind of just made a mess. I assume it must be pre-cooked to some degree before being assembled and baked in the pastry.

Looks like an awfully large serving of sweetbread to me. I'd have a hard time dissecting brains, but eating in one bite, less of an issue.

Sweetbreads are the thymus gland. They are one of my favorite things to eat. It seems less common to serve them in large pieces like that in America as it is in France.

Sweetbreads with shaved chestnuts, celery root confit
