Tweet Tournedos Rossini
Round tenderloin fillets of beef fried in butter, served on a crouton, topped with a slice of foie gras, slices of black truffle, and a Madeira sauce.
Original Receipt in the 'Guide to the Art of Modern Cookery ' by Auguste Escoffier (See: Escoffier);
1126- TOURNEDOS ROSSINI
Fry the tournedos in butter, and dish them, in the form of a crown, upon fried crusts.
On each tournedos set a round slice of foie gras, just a little smaller than the former; the slices should be seasoned, dredged, and fried in butter.
On each slice of foie-gras, set a fine slice of truffle.

Although this is clearly a French style of dish, there is evidence that it was created at the Royal Pavilion in Brighton during Christmas of 1823 by the cook Marie-Antoine Carême in honour of the composer Gioacchino Rossini who was staying there.
