On the Menu: Jacques Torres & Friends Chocolate Brunch
October 08, 2009
As part of our partnership with the New York City Wine and Food Festival, we've invited Jacques Torres (along with FCI faculty members Marc Bauer, Nils Norén, and Alain Sailhac) to prepare a special brunch featuring chocolate in every course. Anyone who has paid a visit to one of Jacques Torres's candy shops understands that the JBF Award winner knows a thing or two about the addictive sweet stuff. Here's a sneek peek of the menu: Hors d’Oeuvre Miniature Mole-Glazed Chicken Drumsticks Miniature Thyme, Aged Gruyère, and Chocolate Vol-Au-Vent with Wild Mushroom Ragoût Savory Chocolate Napoleons with Spicy Cream Cheese Chocolate Gougères with Gorgonzola and Walnuts Grilled Cocoa Nib–Infused Polenta with Chile-Spiced Beef Tenderloin Brunch Foie Gras with Pear and Chocolate Chutney, Sauternes Aspic, and Brown Butter Brioche Cocoa Nib–Crusted Tournedo of Salmon with Leek Confit, Pickled Grapes, and Delicate Clam and Mascarpone Foam Duck Magret with Pommes Anna Galette, Parsnip–Cocoa Emulsion, Red Beet Quenelle, and Chocolate and Balsamic Grand-Veneur Sauce Hot Chocolate Soup Jacques Torres’ Signature Dessert Storm Click here to see the official event listing.
