The sabayon needed to be caramelized under the salamander, but due to how high above my head the equipment was, I wasn’t able to get it as I would have liked. In other words, that’s why there’s holes in the colouration.
I know, the plating for this dish was dreadfully uninspired. Mushroom quenelles again, Amanda? Pfft.
This is a modern version of the classical French braised beef dish from Burgundy. All the traditional garnishes are there: potatoes, bacon and onions, but there is also a foie gras dariole and parsley crouton circles.
