Very good and elegant looking. I had a little trouble with the cakes breaking up, but I think it was because my eggs were too big to it was a little too wet. I restarted using smaller eggs, and I also pan fried them like I do with fried chicken. That worked out perfectly. The puree was very beautiful in color and tasted great! I think I'd add some cracked black pepper to the cakes. I served with shaved parmesan over the top of both. Made and Reviewed for Tag It Red game - Thanks! :)
