In this episode, we explore the culinary delights of Aspen, specifically at the renowned Caribou Club. This establishment offers one of the finest dining experiences in the area. Galvante’s founder, Christine, is joined by Chef Miles, the executive chef responsible for creating the incredible dishes from the Caribou Club’s kitchen. So join us in this incredible adventure!
Chef Miles is preparing a recent creation called butter-poached lobster with lobster tortelloni, sweet pea puree, and crispy Pata Negra, a special form of pancetta with a unique texture and marbling.
To prepare this dish, you need to perfectly poach lobster tail in a mixture of butter and water. The homemade tortelloni, known as zebra-striped tortelloni, is a delightful combination of flavors and is visually pleasing. When paired with the lobster and sweet pea puree, it creates a perfect blend of textures and taste. Fresh spring pea tendrils add a burst of color and freshness to the dish, while crispy Pata Negra and a sprinkle of flake salt enhance its texture and flavor.
This dish is an excellent representation of the flavors, textures, and aesthetics you can expect at the Caribou Club in Aspen. Next time you visit, make sure to experience this fantastic culinary creation!
