Beef Wellington

Beef Wellington

This is a dish I like to bust out when we have a really extravagant meal lined up. It requires a lot of prep work (like 8 hours on your “day off” to make 60 of them) but if you only have 4 to make, you’re laughing. The best part is, once the prep is done, you literally pop them in the oven, pull them out in 16 to 20 minutes, and they are done. It’s a really impressive main course if you have a special occasion coming up, so if you have some time to prepare, give this a shot. Once you take your first bite, I swear you will forget about all the time spent making them.

L'Arpège Egg

L'Arpège Egg

The Arpège egg is a personal favorite dish of mine that was made famous by the incredible Alain Passard of L’Arpège in Paris. It’s an incredibly luxurious Chaud-Froid (literally hot-cold) that consists of an egg yolk, gently coddled in it’s own shell, topped with chives, seasoned crème fraîche and maple syrup.
