Celeriac Ravioli with a Green Bean and Chicken Filling

The nutty, celery like flavour of celeriac makes a perfect accompaniment to the chicken in this masterpiece by Chef Franck Giovannini. The saltiness of the caviar adds just the right amount of pizazz. This is art on a plate and the best part is you can eat it!!

METHOD

Chicken Stuffing

  1. Purée the chicken breast, then add the egg whites.
  2. Mix well, then stir in the cream. Season with salt and pepper and pass through a sieve. Set the stuffing aside in the fridge. 

Green Bean Filling

  1. Bring the cream and milk up to the boil, add the beans and simmer for approximately 10 minutes.
  2. Blend and strain through a fine-mesh chinoise.
  3. Season with salt and pepper and place in the fridge.
  4. Mix the chilled bean filling into the chicken mixture, together with the brunoise of raw beans.
  5. Transfer to a piping bag and chill. 

 

ASSEMBLY

  1. Grease twelve 2 cm diameter round metal rings. Pipe some of the green bean filling inside the rings, cover with cling film and place in the fridge.
  2. Using a mandoline, cut the celeriac into fine slices and use a 5 cm diameter cutter to cut out 24 rounds. 
  3. Blanch the celeriac circles quickly in salted boiling water, then plunge immediately into iced water.
  4. Drain the celeriac rounds carefully and place them on a tray. Using a piping bag, pipe a hazelnut-sized amount of filling into the centre of 12 celeriac rounds and cover these with the remaining 12 rounds.
  5. Press the edges together firmly to make neat ravioli. Cover with cling film and place in the fridge.

 Velouté of Green Beans

  2. Place the rings and their content, together with the ravioli, into a steam oven at 90°C for 5 minutes. 
  3. Heat a drop of olive oil in a pan and brown the green vegetables. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Turn out the contents of 3 rings onto each plate, arrange the green vegetables around the outside and place the ravioli on top.
  5. Dribble with a little olive oil, sprinkle with fine sea salt and freshly ground peppercorn medley.
  6. Decorate each ravioli with a little Ossetra caviar and a few fresh seasonal sprouts.
