Oxtail consommé

Raft (to clarify the consommé)

Morel powder

To assemble the eggs

To begin, make the oxtail consommé. Sauté the pieces of oxtail in oil for a few minutes in a hot pan until caramelised. Add the carrots, onions and celeriac and continue to cook, occasionally deglazing the pan with a little water
Stir in the tomato paste, then add 3 litres of cold water and bring to the boil. Allow to simmer for 2 hours
Add the garlic, spices and herbs and boil for another 30 minutes. Remove from the heat, allow to cool then pass through a sieve. Keep overnight in the fridge
The next day, mix together all of the raft ingredients until well-combined. Add the raft mixture to the broth, bring to the boil and continue to cook over a low heat for 2 hours. Allow to rest for 30 minutes, pass the liquid through a sieve and season with salt
For the morel powder, dry the morels in a dehydrator at 60°C for 2 hours. Blitz in a spice grinder until you obtain a fine powder and set aside until ready to serve
To assemble the eggs, mix 100ml of the oxtail consommé with the cream in a saucepan and bring to 80°C. Place the egg yolks in a mixing bowl and pour the consommé and cream mixture into the eggs, whisking continuously until smooth
Preheat a steam oven to 80°C on 100% steam
Season with salt and pour the mixture into the egg shells. Cover with cling film and steam for 80 minutes
To serve, cover 4 bowls with some moss or black salt. Place an egg onto each mound of moss, dust with morel powder and finish with a spoonful of caviar
