  • 50g of beetroot juice
  • 3 eggs
  • 250g of almond flour
  • 25g of 00 flour
2
Pour the mixture into a siphon with 2 N2O charges and allow to rest for 14 minutes
3
Use the mixture to fill 4 microwavable plastic or paper cups and cook in the microwave for 1 minute. Set aside until ready to serve
4
Preheat the oven to 140°C/gas mark 2
5
Peel each potato and finely slice on a mandoline. Place in a bowl and mix with the thyme and butter so that everything is well-coated
  • 2 sprigs of thyme
  • 2 large potatoes, waxy
  • 50g of butter, melted
6
Layer the potatoes in a small buttered baking dish and cook in the oven for 1 hour, until the potatoes are tender. Allow to cool, then place in the fridge to set for at least 3 hours

Wash and peel the black salsify, then simmer in the milk for 30 minutes
  • 500g of milk
  • 150g of black salsify
8
Blend the salsify until smooth, season with salt and pepper and transfer to a piping bag or squeezy bottle

  • salt
  • 32 dried morels

Blanch the wild garlic in salted boiling water for a few minutes, then drain and blend with a little vegetable stock to make a thin purée

To make the squid crackers, mix together the flour, water, ink and a little salt in a bowl until smooth. Heat a frying pan over a medium heat with the oil and ladle in a thin layer of the mixture, just enough to cover the bottom of the pan. Cook until crisp then drain on kitchen paper
