La Caille, L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon

This tender, delicately roasted quail is stuffed with nuggets of foie gras, and that’s not even the most decadent part of the dish. The accompanying, legendary pommes puree is no ordinary mashed potato. Hot, cooked potatoes are pushed through a tamis several times before being combined with copious amounts of Echire butter. The result is creamy, rich, airy potatoes that melt on your tongue and somehow make the foie gras and quail even more indulgent.

Filled With the Spirit

Celebrity-endorsed spirits mean big business to the beverage industry: Fergie and Pitbull for Voli vodka, Swedish House Mafia’s recent collaboration with Absolut, and Matisyahu for L’Chaim Kosher vodka, just to name a few. But some stars of rock, pop and country are going well beyond simply selling clout by the case to actually owning a piece of the action. Cîroc? Diddy. Mansinthe? Marilyn Manson. Crystal Head? Dan Aykroyd. There’s also Ron Jeremy’s Ron de Jeremy, Bethenny Frankel’s Skinnygirl line … You get the picture.
