And: Gita scored the recipe for Phillip’s famous Duck Egg, Asparagus, Butter and Vinegar Recipe, which he served that night at the Dep. The dish is a simplified combination of two classics: Asperges Hollandaise and Asparago Milanese. It takes on the basic flavours of hollandaise and is even simpler to make than the Milanese. Get it here!
