In 2007 Chef Neuville left to go out on his own with his family and open Fat Hen Restaurant & Catering (Low Country French).

Ready to fuse his passion for food and family, Neuville opens Fat Hen as an outpost for culinary delights and domestic enjoyment.

Sautéed Oysters

Ingredients:
• Shallots…1oz.
• Country Ham…1.5 oz.
• Wild Mushrooms…1.5oz.
• White Wine…1 oz.
• Liason…3 oz.
• Spinach…1 oz.
• Oyster (selects)…5 each

M.O.P.
Using a sauté pan on high heat, you first start with the shallots and white wine. Let the wine reduce by half and add liason(egg yolks and heavy cream), mushrooms, and country ham. When the liason is “nape” consistency, add the spinach and oysters. Sauté until the oysters are translucent, season with salt and pepper, and serve over grilled Tuscan bread.
