Step 1: Crayfish

Separate the tails of the crayfish from the heads.

Cook the claws for 2 minutes in a court-bouillon flavored with the dried fennel and black pepper.

Roast the tails in a pot for 3 minutes, and then add the crushed garlic cloves and the parsley stems. Infuse for 10 minutes in the pot covered with a wet towel.

Once cooled, shell the claws and the tails.

Step 2: Salad

Sauté the chanterelles in a hot pan in brown butter, then season with fleur de sel and freshly ground pepper.

Blanch the cranberry beans starting in cold water, then drain. Return them to the pot and cook with the carrot, onion, bouquet garni, bacon trimmings, and foie gras trimmings.

When cooked, the cranberry beans should be soft and tender.
