Sauce Gribiche with Roasted Cauliflower Steaks

Gribiche Sauce

This sauce stole my heart many moons ago when my French chef had me squish hardboiled eggs through a fine mesh sieve. I was a little bit panicky inside, because I really should have been setting up for service, and brunoise-ing veg for a mystery sauce probably would have been something I would have taken care of earlier, given the option. We served it as a special amuse bouche that night for some phantom VIPs, underneath a piece of briefly seared tuna. It was f-ing great.

It wasn’t until later that week that I realized the reason I liked it so much was because it had all of the components of a fish & chips-style tartar sauce. The stuff you ask for extra of when your Dad takes you to the beach for a greasy lunch. I love it when classic flavours can span fine-dining, to the very most casual classics, and now to the healthy, nutrient-dense world of food.
