Sommelier’s tip


The wine of Chablis reveals some appetizing floral notes that transition into more fruity notes of apricot and peach. On the nose, it also offers citrus and a fresh buttery aroma. In the mouth, it is lively, particularly delicate, and offers good minerality.


1. Mix the sugar and salt, and pour half into a bowl, and place the egg yolks on top. Cover with the remaining sugar and salt and place in the refrigerator for 10 days.

2. Remove the yolks, rinse well and wipe carefully. Leave to dry in the oven at 50°C for 12 hours. They will keep for around four weeks.

3. Wash the mushrooms and fry in a little olive oil. Season lightly with salt.

4. Crush the basil leaves in some olive oil and season with salt. The mixture should be fluid.

5. Cut the scallops horizontally in very thin slices. Place in circles on heated ovenproof plates. Sprinkle with a little icing sugar and caramelize with a gas flame, without burning!

6. Arrange the mushrooms on the plate and finely grate the marinated egg yolk over the top. Add the basil sauce, season with salt and pepper, and serve immediately.
