Chef Way: Thomas Keller's salmon cornets (tuiles shaped into tiny cones and topped with creme fraiche and fresh smoked salmon) are a famous kick-off to his luxe and whimsical meals at the French Laundry in Napa Valley. The original recipe appears in the French Laundry Cookbook(Artisan).
Easy Way: Shaping the tuiles into cones is tricky and involves working very quickly with the cornet mold. Instead, leave the tuiles flat, like cracker. Top them with store-bought smoked salmon and creme fraiche. F&W Newsletter - March 30/2009. --Cooling time not included-- ;)
