fried foie gras
with celery ribbon, maldon sea salt, meyer & lemon
This was an amuse bouche that was coupled with a Mango Soda Pop palate cleanser. The idea was to have the diner eat the foie in one bite and after fully consumed, wash it down with a mango/pop rock push pop.
The embarrassing reality was when we went to fry the foie it immediately fell apart so we had to go with an unfried variant. What was really upsetting was that we had fried a bunch off prior to sample and it came out fine (hence the picture). I think we overcrowded the fryer and all the bubbles agitated the breading off of the foie gras. Oh well, gotta try it again sometime, I guess.
