Quenelles de faisan à la financière
À la Financière is a French cooking term that can mean a garnish, a presentation method, or that a food is served with a sauce called “financière.”
As a garnish, used for poultry and meat, it consists of cocks’ combs and cocks’ kidneys, chicken quenelles, lamb sweetbreads, mushrooms, olives and truffles.
As a presentation method, it involves serving the food in a food basket; for example a vol-au-vent or a basket made from pancake.
The sauce called “financière” is a Madeira-based sauce, sometimes with truffle juice in it.
