HALLOWEEN MENU 2012 : INSIDE/OUT CHICKEN chicken heart & guts infested with maggots This dish didn’t come together until we actually plated it. I had so many ideas for it that I just didn’t know what the end result was. It turned out quite nice. I used a needle syringe to inject the raw chicken heart with the chicken jus which I reduced, mounted with butter, and then dyed with beet juice. You can actually insert the needle right into the arterial tubes and it’ll pool up in a hollow area in the heart. Pretty awesome. The breakdown: chicken heart - grilled chicken heart injected with blood jus guts - chicken stew maggots - risotto egg in nest - soft-boiled quail egg, potato frites, & sweet potato puree that thing on the left - sous-vide & fried boneless chicken wing

This dish didn’t come together until we actually plated it. I had so many ideas for it that I just didn’t know what the end result was. It turned out quite nice.

I used a needle syringe to inject the raw chicken heart with the chicken jus which I reduced, mounted with butter, and then dyed with beet juice. You can actually insert the needle right into the arterial tubes and it’ll pool up in a hollow area in the heart. Pretty awesome.

The breakdown:

chicken heart - grilled chicken heart injected with blood jus
guts - chicken stew
maggots - risotto
egg in nest - soft-boiled quail egg, potato frites, & sweet potato puree
that thing on the left - sous-vide & fried boneless chicken wing
