Preparation time: 30 min
- Preparation for the cream
Peel the shallots and cut thinly. Peel the celeriac and cut into cubes of 3 cm. In a casserole, cook the shallots with a piece of butter and a pinch of salt. Add the celeriac and cook 2 minutes, then moisten with water to cover and cook for about twenty minutes. Once celery cooked, add the cream and boil. Then mix the cream of celery with a blender and adjust seasoning.
- Preparation for the poached egg
Put 1 l of water to boil with the vinegar. Break each egg into a ramekin and place in the simmering water, without the rush. From clotting white, remove and store in ice water to stop cooking.
- To serve
Dip the eggs in hot water to warm, prepare the cream in a bowl, arrange the slices of smoked duck breast, poached eggs and reduced balsamic vinegar.
This technique to poach eggs applies to all other types of egg. The vinegar helps to coagulate the egg white. Do not overcook the eggs so that the center is still runny.
