Mousse of haddock, Roquefort and plum

How can you transform a food such that it disappears? By hiding it in a mousse! That's how we made it a real head-scratcher for Sorted Food to pick out the secret ingredient in this recipe: haddock. To pull off this recipe, you need a whipped cream dispenser with a gas cartridge to make the emulsion. Then let molecular cuisine work its magic! Smart, isn't it? 

A delicious wine pairing with a Bourgogne selection from Domaine Lucien Muzard&Fils

    Pair with

    White wine - Santenay Champs Claude from Domaine Lucien Muzard&Fils 

    This wine lingers in the mouth and is then balanced by a hint of freshness which takes over. One does not perceive the ageing that comes with the body worthy of a great terroir.

    Vinification & maturing : 
    The grapes are pressed, the must is lightly clarified before being placed into barrels. Alcohol fermentation is achieved with indigenous yeast. Malolactic fermentation is entirely carried out during the winter months, in our underground cellars. We use 20% of new barrels for this cuvée which is matured for 10 months in casks, with a third of the cuvée being matured in barrels before being blended in vats for homogenisation for around 2 months.
