Ah, the days of King Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette, the Palace of Versailles, and the royal foods of the time!
In this episode the filming crew and I visit La Caille (I think that's French for "The Caille"), a spectacular French restaurant outside of Salt Lake City. They have recreated a French chateau, from the lofty meals of old to the bustier outfits of the 1800's, down to the ceilings which they imported from a bakery in France. Swans and ducks roam the grounds, while peacocks spread their feathers for the diners in the outside garden.
In homage to this, my favorite restaurant in the western US, I too decided to recreate a dish from the past: Duck a l'Orange. Where better, then, to recreate this dish than at a fast food outlet with a king's crown on their sign? Admittedly, it was quite a surprise when King Louis XVI himself decided to pay us a visit during the filming.
Before I get any complaints from the video, rest assured that no actual ducks were injured in the creation of this film. Just don't tell chef Dolce Debbie how I used her blender. - Barry
Please leave a comment - the crew and I would love to hear which fast food outlet we should visit next!
