Method

1
Start by preparing the hay. If it's wet or damp, place into an oven set to a low temperature until completely dry. Once dry, place into a large saucepan
  • 100g of fresh hay
2
Light the hay on fire and stand away from the flame. After all the hay is burnt, cover with a lid to extinguish the flames and then cover with water. Allow to slowly simmer for 10 minutes
3
Pass the smoky hay-infused water through a fine strainer and pour into a smaller saucepan. Bring to the boil, remove from the heat and add the kidney's. Leave the kidneys in the stock until cool. This will gently poach them, creating a smooth texture

Place the potatoes into a pan filled with cold water and gently boil for 20–30 minutes. Once cooked, but still firm and hot, put them through the vegetable mill (mouli) or ricer
