Preparation (recipe for 4 people)

Hazelnut milk

Roast the hazelnuts in the oven until they turn golden brown. Melt the butter and hazelnut oil in a saucepan and sweat the browned hazelnuts, season with Maldon salt and deglaze with milk and oat milk, bring to the boil and leave to infuse for 24 hours. Strain, warm the mixture slightly and mix with soy lecithin to a stable foam.

Beurre Blanc ice cream

Sweating shallots in butter until they turn translucent, add peppercorns and deglaze with white wine, vinegar and reduction. Boil down to a creamy consistency and let the herbs steep in it. Strain through a sieve and bind with egg yolk at 85 °C, gradually add the butter cubes. Freeze in an ice cream maker for about 15 minutes.

Malt bread

Press the pumpernickel through a coarse sieve so that the kernels remain in the sieve. Marinate with vinegar and oil.

Dressing with large-grained sturgeon caviar

Place the marinated malt bread in a deep plate and pour foamed hazelnut milk on top. Place a dollop of butter ice cream in the center of the foam and drape the fresh low-salt caviar from Royal Caviar on top.
