Two years ago, I decided to celebrate the Feast of the Seven Fishes on Christmas Eve with Mr. M&P for our holiday dinner together. And that was the best decision I made. On that night, I made some of my most ambitious and beautiful dishes to date. It was a lot of hard work but I was very happy with my results. Unfortunately, last year I got so stressed out and anxious about repeating the success of the meal, that I chickened out last minute. In fact, I didn't end up cooking anything and instead we went out to dinner. Looking back, I completely regret my decision last year but it was probably best for my stress level. However, I wasn't going to allow that for this year. I started planning much earlier and prepped myself mentally first then physically later.
The soft meat of the sturgeon with little pops of caviar in every bite spread on a buttery rich brioche toast. The terrine itself was a bit fishy and the texture was a bit too soft. It reminded us of canned tuna but fancier. Overall, we probably wouldn't buy this again.
