For the ravigote: In a mixing bowl, combine the mayonnaise, mustard, lemon juice, onions, shallots, garlic, capers, parsley, chervil, and tarragon. Mix until fully incorporated. Season with salt and pepper.

Combine the crab meat and ravigote together and chill. For the tomatoes: In a saute pan, heat the bacon fat. Season each tomato slice with Emeril's Essence. Season the flour and cornmeal with 2 tablespoons of Essence. In a small bowl, combine the eggs and buttermilk together and whisk well. Dredge the tomatoes in the flour.

Dip them in the egg wash, removing any excess. Dredge the tomatoes in the bread crumbs. In the hot bacon fat, fry each tomato for 2 minutes on each side, or until golden. Remove the tomatoes from the pan and drain on a paper-lined plate. Season the tomatoes with Essence. Place the greens on the plate. At an angle, alternate the tomatoes with the crab ravigote. Garnish with the oils, flowers and parsley. This recipe yields 6 servings.
