The first kiss of love, Springtime or the new speechless butter

Image

The new butter requires two people in love, salted butter made from cultured cream and some lightly salted sour cream. Equp the couple with two teaspoons, one with perfectly (14,8) tempered butter, the other with perfectly (20) tempered sour cream. Well, I think you get the picture. What is very important is that you engage in the style of kiss invented by the french! The resulting butter is divine and can not be described with words! If ever served in a restaurant and given to two businessmen there could be unpredicted results and unprecedented business oppurtunities. . If served to lovers they will forever be in love!

Thank you M for the inspiration!

This idea could also be applied to other combinations of ingredients…will get back to you on that!

Make a really concentrated cep oil.  Make tiny squares of cucumber and cover them in the salted cep oil.

Add sugar on surface of chicken liver mousse and use a gas burner to caramelize the sugar.

Mine was made by my blacksmith and has a beautiful quinine handle. It served me well in battle in Madagascar.

Kale and next years competition.

The idea is to use only one ingredient and butter/buttermilk/soured cream.
I came up with this:
Fermented dried kale, boiled stem of kale, butter fried kale, jus of fermented kale with puree of kale, dried kale. Surprisingly good. Without the acidity from the fermentation it would be flat. Could have added some salted sour cream but thought it was a bit too much.

Next year we will organize a competition where there will only be 1 ingredient and the dairy products from our dairy. More info to follow.
