One of Francis’ primary goals when private cheffing: to create something that no one would (or could) make at home.
Think of a friend or family member who orders some bland and basic chicken dish when out at a nice restaurant. You want to change the order for them, right? They’re fine dining – go for something different! Well this recent dish defines “something different.”
It is called Lobster en Bellevue Parisienne which is as much culinary architecture as delicious. It has a long history though its not commonly made. Check out the picture below. The lobster takes center stage while the shrimp and smoked salmon on pumpernickel serve as supporting actors.
The diners were bowled over by this dish and Francis was quite proud. So what would you order at a restaurant that you’d rarely if ever make at home?
