List of ingredients
250g cooked beetroot
1 organic lemon
Ground black pepper
A small bunch of chives
Chablis Premier Cru Côte de Léchet
This wine is wonderfully subtle on the nose. It reveals aromas of elderberry and sweet fruity notes. On the tongue, it is delicate and extremely mineral, giving it an almost savory character. It can be kept for a minimum of 15 years.
1. Slice the beetroot very thinly and zest the lemon. Squeeze the juice and mix with the salt, sugar, pepper, and olive oil. It should taste fresh and lemony without being acidic. Leave the beetroot to marinade in the lemon mixture for two hours.
2. Chop the chives finely. Use a vegetable peeler to peel the bottarga, and then cut into thin strips.
Arrange the beetroot on a plate and sprinkle with the chives, bottarga and lemon zest. Serve immediately and enjoy with a glass of Chablis Premier Cru!
