  1. Chestnut cream, poached egg, 7-hour braised beef tongue


    • Frozen fruit purée, sugar added : Chestnut & vanilla - 1kg
    • Fresh liquid cream - 500g
    • Beef tongue - 1 pièce
    • Bouquet garni - 1 kg
    • Port - 1/2 bouteille
    • Veal stock - 500 cl
    • Onion - 10p
    • Poached egg - 10p
    • Croutons - 500g
    • Potato - 1kg
    • Milk - 500g
    • Truffle oil

    Braise the beef tongue with the bouquet garni. Fry the onions until caramelised, glaze with port and reduce by 3/4. When the beef tongue is almost cooked, peel it, continue it until it is glazed in the reduced port jus and leave to cool. Dice finely and leave it to soak up the sauce.

    Warm the single cream with the chestnut puree and check the seasoning.

    Poach the eyes in vinegared boiling water, cool then increase the temperature to serve.

    For the mousse, warm the mashed potato with milk until it reaches almost liquid consistency, season with salt and truffle oil. Pour into a siphon with 3 gas cartridges.
