Langoustine au casier

This is one of Anne-Sophie Pic’s signature dishes. It consists of grilled crayfish in butter, with a sauce flavored with green apple, celery, anise, and cinnamon leaf. The sauce constitutes the most interesting element of this dish and Pic developed it with the aim of it being complex in the making but simple in tasting. She wanted to have an elaborate sauce that still had distinguishable ingredients. I can’t tell you if she succeeded since I haven’t tried it (yet!) but it doesn’t look too shabby to me.

Anne-Sophie Pic is the daughter and granddaughter of chefs; but she did not decide to become one herself until she already had completed business studies. She’s a self-taught chef who is always seeking to develop flavors and tastes. She experiments with little known ingredients and different modes of preparation. Her style of cuisine is really simple but it’s also very sophisticated. You can discover more here.
