Parfait of Cauliflower Puree and Caviar

INGREDIENTS:
1/2 cup firmly packed raw cauliflower flowerets
1/4 medium waxy potato, peeled and cut into large chunks
salt and pepper to taste
1/8 pint heavy cream
6 ounces top-grade caviar

DIRECTIONS:
Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Add the cauliflower and potato. Boil until cooked through, about 25 minutes. Drain the vegetables, then pass them through a very fine sieve (like a tamis) 2 times.

Place the mixture in a small, heavy saucepan over moderately high heat and dry it out for 2 to 3 minutes. (Do not allow it to burn.) Season to taste with salt and pepper. Chill until very cold.

Whip the cream until it's light and firm. fold whipped cream carefully into cold cauliflower mixture, preserving the airiness of the cream if possible. Chill until very cold.

When ready to serve, place one sixteenth of the caviar in each of 8 cups or glasses. Top each with one eighth of the cold cauliflower cream. Top each with the remaining one sixteenth of caviar. Chill until very cold and serve.

Joël Robuchon’s ‘potato puree’ is the dish — in his own words — that made his name in the industry. “These mashed potatoes, it’s true, made my reputation,”

The key to the dish is then peeling the potato while it’s hot and using a food mill to puree them until they’re silky smooth.

Image

Method:
1. Put the potatoes in a saucepan with 2 litres of cold water and 1 tablespoon of coarse salt. Bring to a simmer, cover, and cook until a knife slips in the potatoes easily and cleanly, about 25 minutes.

2. Drain the potatoes and peel them while hot. Put them through a food mill fitted with its finest disk and into a large saucepan. Turn the heat to medium and dry the potato flesh out a bit by turning it vigorously with a spatula for about 5 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, rinse a small saucepan and pour out the excess water but do not wipe it dry. Add the milk and bring to a boil.

4. Turn the heat under the potatoes to low and incorporate the well-chilled butter bit by bit, stirring it in energetically for a smooth, creamy finish. Pour in the very hot milk in a thin stream, still over a low heat, still stirring briskly. Keep stirring until all the milk is absorbed. Turn off the heat and taste for salt and pepper.

5. For an even lighter, finer puree, put it through a very fine sieve before serving.

Not anymore.
The idea is to turn the caviar farming industry into something more akin to the commercial production of poultry, eggs or milk. The new method, being practiced at a small farm in Loxstedt, Germany, called Vivace GmbH, involves first viewing a sturgeon's eggs by ultrasound. If they are deemed ready, a signaling protein is administered to the sturgeon several days before the egg harvest. This, Köhler says, "induces labor" and releases the eggs from a membranous sack in the belly cavity. At that point, the eggs can be pumped from the belly with gentle massaging. Köhler says the process can be repeated every 15 months or so throughout a sturgeon's lifetime, which may last decades.
