(LAMB BACKSTRAP) SELLE D’AGNEAU EN CROUTE DE CHATIGNE, VELOUTE DE PANAIS, PATATE CONFITE:  One of the more exciting regions of France, you find more prominent influences of the neighbouring Mediterranean here with the use of lamb backstrap.  The crust is chestnut which is countered by a parsnip white sauce and confit potato.  The richness and obvious precision to the dish make this the must-try this winter.
