How To
  • 1
    For the lamb:
    Remove the fillet from the bone, trim the fat and marinate with the vadouvan for 24 hours. Cut into 160g portions. Keep the trimmings to make the jus. Just before serving, sear the fillet in a hot pan, then bake until medium rare.
  • 2
    For the artichoke puree:
    Sweat 50g of diced carrots, 50g of celeriac and 50g of onions. Add the artichokes, a little wine and thyme. Cover and cook until tender. Blend, strain, adjust seasoning and reserve in a pipette.
  • 3
    For the artichoke poivrade:
    Remove the leaves from the 9 artichoke poivrades and cook them with 20g of carrots, 20g of celery and 20g of onions, all cut into small cubes. Just before serving, cut in half lengthways, brown the cut side in a pan, deglaze with vinegar and glaze with juice.
  • For the herb gnocchi
    Mix 250g of potato flesh, 80g of flour, 50g of parmesan, 1 egg and 40g of chopped mixed herbs with salt/pepper, then form into gnocchi. Cook in boiling water just before serving and finish by glazing with butter.
  • For the artichoke chip poivrade:
    Remove the outer leaves from the 2 artichoke poivrades, cut them in half and slice them with a slicer. Place them between two sheets of cling film with olive oil and salt and cook in the microwave until they are as soft as you like.
  • For the lamb jus:
    Brown the bones and trimmings in a hot pan. Reduce the heat and add shallots, garlic, butter and thyme to the pan. Cook gently until the shallots soften, then add a little water and reduce. Strain the mixture and return the liquid to the pan. Add a little vadouvan and leave to infuse.
