Royal of turnip with Kyona mustard cress.

Preparation method:


Clean and wash the turnips. Keep the most beautiful green leaves. Peel the turnips.

We prepare it further in 3 ways:

Part 1: Grilled discs
Cut 3 slices per person, thickness 1 cm, cut where turnips thickest. Season with salt and pepper and a few drops of argan oil. Grill slowly on both sides. Save for later. 

Part 2: Sour threads
Cut some wafer-thin slices from the remaining turnip parts with the help of a mandolin. Then cut fine with a knife into threads. Marinate these in half water, half apple vinegar. Also add some salt and let it rest for 30 minutes.

Part 3: Emulsion
We cut remaining turnip pieces  into blocks and cook them in water with a little salt. Add finely chop a few green leaves and cook for another 30 seconds. Then mix turnip with greens and a dash of cooking liquid, add a little mace and a dash of argan oil. Possibly spice extra with pepper and sea salt.

Place 3 hot discs on each plate. Spoon some fresh green turnip emulsion onto each slice. Drain slightly leavened turnip julienne and place a small heap on each slice. Now finish with some finely chopped chives and Kyona mustard cress. Possibly a few more drops of argan oil.
