Porcini Mushroom Consommé

  • 4 1/4 ounces white onions (120 g)
  • 3 medium-sized porcini mushrooms, 10 1/2 ounces each (300 g)
  • 7 fluid ounces chicken consommé (80 cl)
  • 3 tablespoons whipping cream (5 cl)


Step 1: Porcini Mushroom Consommé

Peel and mince the white onions. Clean the porcini mushrooms, wash them, and slice into large pieces.

Sweat the onions in a large pot, covered, without browning. Add the porcini mushrooms, and simmer over a very low heat.

Add the boiling chicken consommé, and cook for 30 minutes. Strain through a fine meshed chinois. Season as needed.

The texture of the mixture should smooth and creamy, neither thick nor lumpy.

Whip the cream in a mixing bowl.

Step 2: Crayfish

Separate the heads from the bodies, and reserve the roe. Cook the claws in a court-bouillon flavored with dried fennel and black pepper for 2 minutes.

Roast the tails in a pot for 3 minutes. Add the crushed garlic cloves and the parsley, and infuse for 10 minutes in a pot covered with a damp cloth.

Once cooled, shell the claws and tails.
