Best Beef Tartar in the World

No these aren't little chocolates. Although they do look sweet!

They're the beautiful little quail eggs that my husband served with the tartar he made me on Valentine's Day (yes I'm a little late getting this up). I should also mention it was his birthday, you know, just to make myself look even worse. He insisted on cooking, honest!

We started off with some fried oyster mushrooms with romano and arugula. Soooo delicious.

Then this heavenly tartar that he finely chopped and mixed with capers, shallots, chives, hot sauce, dijon, worcestershire, truffle oil, salt and pepper and egg yolk. He separated the yolk from the quail egg and set it in salted water, which hardened it just enough to stay intact when placed over the mound of bright red meat. The salad along side, which had just as much detailed attention put into it with it's finely chopped sweet potato and beets, was mixed with microgreens and lightly drizzled in truffle oil.

Honestly one of the best meals I've ever had. Love, love, love tartar. I even had some leftovers for lunch the next day. Yum!

We had an amazing Amarone from a vintage release a couple of months ago. When I get home I'll check the name of it and let you know. It was delicious.

So happy to hear you blog as your post had me smiling going I need to know this chick! anyways not a stalker or anything but any recommendations for a good ninja turles pizza place lots of chese (but thin) never thick. Very gooey and that salty authentic italian tomato sauce. Recently went to this hole in the wall (pardon the cliche) MAZING Called Pizza Italie.
