Poached eggs

To coat the eggs


  • 100ml of extra virgin olive oil
  • 10ml of sherry vinegar
  • 1 lime, juice and zest
  • salt
  • pepper


Broad bean salad

To prepare the eggs, bring the water, salt and vinegar to a boil in a deep-sided saucepan
  • 1.5l water
  • 15g of rock salt
  • 100ml of white wine vinegar
Crack the eggs one-by-one into small glasses, making sure they are very cold as this will help them to retain their shape when poaching
Lower the water to a simmer and stir to create a whirlpool. Drop the eggs one-by-one in the middle of the water and cook for 3 minutes. Carefully drain and refresh the eggs in iced water
To prepare the coating for the eggs, cut the pastry into a very fine julienne and keep covered with a slightly damp cloth
  • feuille de brick pastry, one packet
Whisk the egg with a pinch of salt and pepper
Drain the eggs and carefully coat each one in the flour, then the egg, and finally the feuille de brick pastry. Heat a deep-fryer to 160°C
  • flour
To make the vinaigrette, whisk together all of the ingredients until combined. Set aside until needed
  • 100ml of extra virgin olive oil
  • 10ml of sherry vinegar
  • 1 lime, juice and zest
  • pepper
  • salt
Wash the morels very thoroughly in lukewarm water, rinsing out the bowl and washing in fresh water repeatedly until the water runs clear. Dry well on kitchen paper
Heat a frying pan over a medium heat and fry the morels in the oil for 1-2 minutes until liquid starts to seep from them. Crack the garlic clove and add to the pan, season the morels with salt and pepper then add the butter. Fry for a further 2-3 minutes until the morels are cooked, then deglaze the pan with the Madeira and remove from the heat
Dress the broad beans, radishes and frisée with the dressing and finish with the shallots, bacon and parsley. Arrange on serving plates and add the morels
Deep-fry the coated eggs for 2-3 minutes until golden brown and cripsy and serve on top of the salad
