2 Sprig(s)
Thyme
50 Ml
Cognac
4 Gr
Salt
1 Gr
Nutmeg
50 Ml
Cream 35%
100 Gr
Unsalted butter

Port jelly

150 Ml
Port wine
20 Ml
Honey
4 Gr
Gelatin

Preparation time: 30 min

  • Port Jelly

    At medium heat, bring the port wine's temperature up (40c to be precise) and blaze away! Off the heat, very important, add up the honey and the now soft gelatine sheets. Gently sieve, once again to bring the temperature down for the gelatine to stick and pour it on top of the mousse that you molded, at least 2 hours beforehand.

  • Mousse

    Very high heat, if possible an old fashioned cast iron pan, a nice an even coloration on every liver with a little butter. As soon as the livers are well coloured, and what we call rosés (58c) in the kitchen, put them on a pan to cool them down and stop the cooking. In the same pan, throw in the shallot and the thyme, make sure they are very soft before you flambé them. Chicken livers in and everything in a robot mix until the blend is very soft and uni-coloured! Mold the mixture.

  • Mise-en-place

    Clean the livers by removing any white membrane. Chop down the shallot and the thyme. Cover the gelatine sheets in cold water.

The single most important step in this recipe is to make sure the livers aren't overcooked! The only thing you need is for them to be very well coloured, like a steak, have some good coloration on them then stop the cooking right away!
