Instructions

Step 1: Soup

Cut the cauliflower into small florets, and blanch in boiling, salted water for 2 to 3 minutes. Cool in cold water and drain.

Bring the light chicken stock and whipping cream to a boil. Add the cauliflower and a dash of curry, and cook for 40 minutes.

Purée the mixture until completely smooth, then strain through a fine-meshed chinois. Season as needed.

Cool completely, then adjust the thickness of the cream, if necessary.

Step 2: Croutons

Trim the bread, and cut into 1/20 inch (1 mm) cubes. Lightly heat the clarified butter in a frying pan. Add the croutons, and sauté, tossing constantly to brown evenly. Drain in a strainer, pat dry with paper towels and keep warm.

Dice the butter, and keep in ice cold water until ready to use.

Stalk the chervil.
