In going along with the idea that imitation is the best form of flattery I riffed on TK's dish and came up with "Angels and Oysters". I simply replaced the tapioca with handmade cappellini or angel-hair pasta. After cooking the pasta I tossed it in a beurre monte (emulsified butter sauce) made with the juice from the oysters and some fenugreek.
Pasta is placed neatly in the dish like a little bird's nest. The oysters, which were poached very lightly in the sauce, are placed on top along with a spoonful of American hackleback caviar. The plate is garnished with some chopped chives.
Phish covers the bands that have influenced them in adopting their own unique sound over the years. I've always seen their cover tunes as a way of honoring the greats. So in that same respect, if Chef Keller is reading, Thank You.
