USE SEASONAL VEGETABLES
For this recipe, you will need:
– 6 mini yellow/Chioggia/red beetroots
– 12 mini carrots with their tops
– 8 mini turnips with their tops
– 4 Jerusalem artichokes
– 4 rutabagas
– 4 parsnips
– 200 g crosnes
– 2 celery stalks
Peel the vegetables and cook them whichever way you want. You can cut the raw vegetables into very thin slices and keep them that way or fry them. You can also cut them differently and blanch or even roast them.
– 150 g water
– 100 g sugar
– 50 g vinegar
You can also make pickles out of them. Mix the water, sugar and vinegar, bring to the boil and remove the cut vegetables. The liquid can even be flavoured with the spices of your choice.
– 100 g vacuum-packed ready-to-use chestnuts
– 40 g double cream
– 20 g butter
– 50 g stock
To prepare the chestnut sauce, combine the ingredients above, heat and blend. Place into a siphon and carbonate: your aerated foam is ready.
– arugula and one celery leaf
– hazelnut oil
– veal base
– dried horns of plenty
Season the vegetables with a light vinaigrette and fleur de sel. Arrange the vegetables in a circle while creating a sense of volume. Be careful to leave room in the centre for the chestnut foam. Delicately pour the veal base on top, decorate with arugula flavoured with hazelnut oil and the celery leaf. Chop the dried horns and sprinkle on top.
