Those of us that have been to America will know the reverence that the Olive Garden chain of Italian restaurants is held in by the locals, and they are correct that it is a cut above the usual chain restaurant. They do an Alfredo sauce that is an American take on the the original simple Italian recipe and I can confirm that it is indeed very moorish.

Here's the recipe for the sauce you could try yourself.

Do you use fois gras on your rossini?

Of course not...I can't afford it and I do have an aversion to how it's produced. I use Waitrose duck liver pate. Never compromise on the quality of the fillet and search for decent flavoursome porcini mushrooms. Once again truffles are way out of my budget.

Perhaps it should be called Tournedos Rossini'ish. Bigsmile

I cant stand truffles, FG isn't so bad, but truffles, esp. Truffle oilis up there with coriander as "shit that shouldn't be anywhere near a plate'

I'm not keen on coriander and my wife hates it. I use a lot of oregano in my dishes...even if the recipe doesn't call for it. Also fresh rosemary...absolutely love the stuff.

I'm not a steak lover nowadays but a Steak Rossini I had about 40 years ago in Johannesburg is one of the two tastiest meals I've ever eaten. Fabulous.  

We must not give opposition teams hope. We have to kill them.

Best steak I've ever had was in an Italian Restaurant in Cape Verde, of all places. The owner said he was the only person inthe islands who imported his beef direct from Argentina

Seemed odd at the time, then I read about the Islands being used as a stepping stone for the cocaine industry from South America to the 'Ndrangheta families in Calabria, and that, plus the odd fortress like villas with huge satellite dishes near the port, kinda explained it
