Not going to lie: I was not happy with my first day back in the kitchen. I don’t like the bitterness of endives, nor did I enjoy the plating of this dish. This is a dish from Le Nord (Flandre, Artois, et Picarde).
Turning potatoes isn’t my favourite thing either, but you gotta do what chef says you gotta do. The squash purée soup, however, was more fun.
I enjoyed making the whipping cream quenelle and toasting the pumpkin seeds for a less-boring texture.
