Restaurant recipe: Harrods' Arctic Char with dill butter and morel cassolette
I love chunks of Perugina sausage in sweet pepper-and-onion ragout with two panisses, or chickpea-flour fries; black truffle-accented grilled diver scallops in brown-butter jus; and a cassolette of Provençal vegetables.
Seafood cassolette is a hearty indulgence of shrimp, scallops, red snapper, lobster, lump crab and peas in a creamy au gratin sauce with a splash of champagne.
