Venison with Bone Marrow, Bone Marrow Dumpling, Creamed Parsley & a Fricassee of Mushrooms with a Red Wine & Shallot Sauce   

I chose this dish as I believe it is a highlight in Marco Pierre White's long career. This dish was created at a time when he wanted to reach perfection. And he did. I believe that this also stands for what I believe in which is to use beautiful freshly sourced ingredients but create delicious food.
