Impress Your Friends Quail in Puff Pastry
Not everyone goes on a business trip and ends up buying a black truffle. However, David says this quail dish was inspired by the movie Babette’s Feast and served at own of their regular Cocoa & Lavender “Dinner and a Movie” nights. You should read the full post here, the recipe is below.
Quail - Cailles en Sarcophages
A rich and almost luxurious feast of delicately roasted quail with sumptuous pate and truffles all cozied up in a light flaky puff pastry shell.
David's pastry epiphany...
* I no longer need to rail against frozen, commercial puff pastry. I have recently learned one of the reasons I never liked it. The brand most readily available here (Pepperidge Farm®) is not made with butter. Whose idea was that? It is great for vegans, but... well, whatever.
** I recently found Dufour-brand®, all butter, frozen puff pastry and love it. Homemade is always best but, if you aren't up for it or don't have the time, Dufour® is a great alternative!
