OMG! Look what came in today’s mail! … need I say more? …

Poached Salmon with a Champagne Sauce infused with Asian Flavours

Okay, Michael (Love_Eternal_Desire) may think ice cream is orgasmic … but I’m telling you if you mix 200ml of Champagne with 180g of butter, shallots, soya, a bit of chicken stock and ketjap mansi together and reduce it down to a sauce then pour that sauce over salmon poach in more champagne and serve it with basmati rice you’ve cooked in water you used to rehydrate ancho chiles …. Damn! …. you’ve an orgasm cubed!

Brent’s poached salmon with Champagne sauce … OMG! … a winner!

Jack (MadaMadaDan3):  I’m sure Auberge du Pommier (which, for you out of town xanga readers, is probably the finest french cuisine restaurant in the City of Toronto) does a similar sauce that’s just as to-die for!

Course, you mix a crap load of butter into anything and you cannot go wrong!

Brent’s Crepes Manicotti
Since tomorrow night I must go blah-blah at some 5:30pm function in the boardroom on the 68th floor of the Bank of Montreal  building … oh bloody joy! … I dislike stuff like that immensely, I prepared the manicotti (part two of gourmet week) just now.

    haha indeed we do have a few types Champagne sauces and Champage chantillies too.  but it’s mostly for the use of garnishes on the places. like cream of truffle champagne. – we would whisk to sauce until it foams up and just scoop upt the foam to sauce it.
    but oh man.. with all these dishes you are coming up with, at this pace, i think i’m going to fall behind!!.

    Insanely jealous about the tickets (actually – happy for you), I just wished my bf has the same taste in music as I do. That poached salmon – I’m licking the screen of my laptop. My neighbor used to have a crab apple tree and you’re right, it is very pretty when in full bloom. Thanks again for the support Brent.
