Signature Dishes of Monaco
Interpretation of an Egg
Recipe (serves four)
4 free-range farm eggs 1 black truffle
400g manioc root
3 drops white truffle oil
2 tbsp whipped cream
The passion fruit emulsion
200g maracujas (passion fruit)
3cl Xeres vinegar
6cl white wine
1⁄2 vanilla pod
1 pinch nutmeg
1 pinch saffron
salt and pepper
- For this recipe, you should choose eggs of utmost freshness and use them at room temperature; take them out of the refrigerator some time in advance. Cook them in a steam oven at 145°F for 2 hours and 15 minutes. You may also cook them in water at the same temperature using an immersion heater. Cool them in iced water after cooking.
- Prepare the manioc puree: peel the manioc root with a paring knife, removing the thick dark peel. Cut the manioc root into even-sized chunks, cover it with 1/2 of its depth in milk, add a little coarse salt and cook gently. Keep checking the manioc with the tip of a knife, which should penetrate into the manioc to the core. Drain, puree in a blender and rub through a sieve to remove all fibers. Add 3 drops of white truffle oil, and beat in the whipped cream. Keep warm.
- For the passion fruit emulsion, cut open the maracujas and scoop out the pulp. Add the sugar, the vanilla pod seeds (scraped out with the trip of a knife), finely chopped shallots, Xeres vinegar, white wine, nutmeg, saffron, cream, butter in a saucepan. Bring to the boil, then take off the heat, pass through a sieve and rectify the season. Beat to obtain a mousse which will be used to cover the manioc purée.
- Slice truffle into small disks.
- On each plate, put 2 tablespoon of manioc puree, one egg on top and add the emulsified cream. Decorate with black truffles and passion fruit emulsion.
