Tournedos Rossini

WHAT’S IN THE MENU?
Tournedos Rossini

Named after the Italian composer, Gioachino Antonio Rossini, Tournedos Rossini is beef tenderloin served with foie gras. Rossini, who was born in Pesaro, Italy, lived in several European countries and enjoyed good food. After immense success of his operas The Barber of Seville and William Tell, he retired in 1829. Every time he would go to a restaurant, he would meet the chef and visit the eatery’s kitchen. In one of his favourite restaurants, the Maison Dorée, it is believed the Tournedos Rossini was invented by chef Casimir Moisson, while another story points in the direction of Café Anglais where Rossini bugged the chef so much that Rossini was made to leave the place. The original recipe required a 2.4” * 3.15” inch thick steak from the tenderloin. Since it was too large to grill, the steaks were roasted together and were served on round slices of toasted French sourdough bread. It was followed by garnishing of the steaks was of foie gras which is fattened goose liver, placing it on top of the steak. However, today the steak cut from the fillet for Tournedos Rossini weighs around 250 grams. It is not roasted and is barded before it is grilled. Each diner can request a rare, medium rare or even medium-well Tournedos Rossini. However, in France the chef will not prepare a well-done order. Coming to the luxurious foie gras, it is fried gently in beurre noisette which adds flavour to the dish. The classic recipe if followed today, will make the dish extremely expensive so all those fond of the dish, can do with a less expensive version with most of the original ingredients.
