Morel Mushrooms and Watercress with Brown Butter
If you've never been lucky enough to enjoy browned butter, you are in for a treat! This stuff is almost worth drinking shots of. We all love butter, but unless you've browned up some of those milk proteins inside it you have no clue what you're missing!
The inherently sweet and always appreciated butter, is heated until some of the goodies that make up this wild emulsification begin to caramelize and brown, which brings a little more sugar to the mix while adding a delightful nutty quality right to the front! Paired with the meaty and earthy elements that make up the morel mushroom and the spicy herbal qualities of watercress (or arugula if you prefer) make up one of the most interesting flavor experiences we've had the chance to try!
