TEAM 2014 – FRANCE

Valentin and Clement from France

“The theme of our food pairing was “Polar Sailing”: Valentin invented a cocktail, using sea water and I created a dish, composed of sea water, gelatin, black caviar and arctic fish. The resulting dish was a pearl-like ball with gold slices – slices of the thinnest gold one can find, added for a splash of color.”

«The Ice Floe» Dish

INGREDIENTS:

60 ml Mamont Vodka
1 tbsp. lime juice
30 ml seawater
3 dashes of Boston Bittahs
½ tbsp. ossetra caviar
White sugar
2 sprigs of dill

DISH NAME: ARCTIC DROP

INGREDIENTS (15pcs):

200 g seawater
25 g clear water
25 g Mamont Vodka
4.5 sheets of gelatine
20 g of caviar
Gold flakes
150 g of arctic char fillet
2 sprigs of dill

ESSENTIAL EQUIPMENT:

Ball-shaped mould that can be separated into two half-spheres.

METHOD FOR DILL CHIPS:

Cover a plate with a plastic wrap. Polish the plastic wrap of the plate with a bit of olive oil, and add salt, pepper and a sprig of dill. Cover with a second plastic wrap; pierce it with a knife. Place in the microwave twice for 30 seconds to evaporate the vegetation water, and then remove the first plastic wrap plastic wrap layer. Let it dry in the open air for at least 5 hours.

METHOD FOR ARCTIC CHAR TARTAR:

METHOD FOR ARCTIC DROP:

SPHERE OF SEAWATER:

Gather seawater, fresh water and Mamont Vodka. Boil a small portion. Meanwhile, soak the gelatine in cold water to soften. When the mixture is boiling, add the softened gelatine, and stir to melt it. Assemble the hot mixture and the rest of the cold mixture (seawater, fresh water and Mamont Vodka). Let the mixture cool; otherwise, the hot mixture may cook the fish.

ASSEMBLY:

Put a very small amount of the mixture (seawater, clear water, Mamont Vodka and gelatine) in the bottom of the moulds. Add small balls of the tartar of Arctic char in each mould. Using a toothpick, place individual caviar and small gold leaf in each mould. Close the mould with the second half-sphere. Fill the void in the mould with the mixture of seawater, fresh water, Mamont Vodka and gelatine using the hole above the mould. Through the same hole, add more caviar eggs and gold leaf. Put the moulds in the fridge for about 4 hours to make gelatine.

Finally: Carefully unmould the spheres, and put dill chips atop them. Note: Serve immediately to prevent gelatine from melting.
