Fermented mushrooms

Mix everything and let ferment in vacuum and at room temperature for a day. Then squeeze it out and only use the juice.

 

Essence

Mix everything except the chicken stock and let soak for 20 minutes. Then mix it together with the stock in a high pot and slowly bring to the boil. After boiling, let infuse for an hour, pass through a fine sieve and reduce to the desired intensity. Add truffle juice to taste.

 

Mushroom gel

Boil everything together, let cool and then mix to a smooth gel.

 

“Toadstool” (55 pieces)

Mix everything together bit by bit and freeze in small half-spheres. Cover with cocoa butter and let de-frost slowly.

 

Black chanterelle branches

Cook ingredients in the Thermomix until it’s a puree, inject into forms and dry. Then fry at 200C.

 

Morel stone

Mix everything together bit by bit, season to taste and freeze in stone shapes. Then cover with cocoa butter and let de-frost slowly.

 

Porcini tartar

Fry porcini and shallots, pacotise and season with porcini powder and fermented mushrooms.

 

Parsley puree

Roughly pick the parsley, blanche for 3 minutes, then squeeze and mix in with the rest. Place into Pacojet tins and freeze. Pacotise at least three times and always freeze in between. De-frost before serving and fill into small piping bags.
