    Delicious! I modified as a single serving and added few cloves of chopped garlic instead of shallots, as well as a serving of walnuts for extra fat

        Portion size turned out quite small but it was delicious! Recommend adding some grated nutmeg and spoonful of mustard to the cream sauce. Oh and some crispy fried garlic on top for a crunch!
