“I’m like everybody else, I’m just another bloke who wants to sit down and eat some good honest food , cooked well”
Marco Pierre White
Presentation is critical.
Use the best quality meat possible and then don't hide it.
Enhancing a steak with a thin
coating of jus gras is one of the simplest but most effective ways to present a great steak.
A great steak can be ruined by the wrong accompaniments.
Tasting the meat is what’s important to me, I like my steak with simple grilled tomatoes and mushrooms on the side.
This is how I serve steaks in my restaurants.
It is of course important to have the right style and quality of chips and onion rings, but let’s not forget that
sometimes keeping it light is the better solution.
Nowadays accompaniments can often be too heavy - one of the things I enjoy most is a simple, fresh green salad to accompany a steak. The crisp salad leaves mixing with the juices of the meat is one of life's great pleasures.
