Chef’s Special: The Bull Hotel – Tournedos Rossini

A classic French dish purportedly created by French master chef Marie-Antoine Careme for the composer Gioachino Rossini

A beautifully constructed classic dish that is currently making an appearance on the Bull Hotel’s exciting new a’la carte menu, giving a more up to date approach which should appeal to modern tastes but still achieving the traditional rich flavours that made the original dish such a great classic. Slices of foie gras and black truffle make way for the chicken liver parfait and flat field mushroom that give a similar but lighter flavour, still harking back to the originality of the dish.
