Appetizer Hors D'oeuvres

Tomato Tartar

A small group of us have, year after year, gone for a day of cooking with the infamous chef Patrick O’Connell at his Michelin three star restaurant, The Little Inn at Washington.

Patrick is the ultimate chef and host so cooking with him is always a great experience. He showed us how to make this amazing appetizer, or can be used on fish, chicken and many other ways.

  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon of garlic. finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon of shallot, finely chopped
