egg.jpg

Duck egg en cocotte is the kind of refined and impressive-sounding dish that you can throw casually at your dinner party guests - but it's refreshingly easy to make. Here Daniel Doherty, head chef of Duck & Waffle, shares his recipe for the classic dish. The Duck & Waffle is appearing at The Lab festival is weekend.

The Lab in partnership with AEG is a brand new food event at Tobacco Dock (25-27 April). Featuring the Noma Taste Test and much more. The event is sold-out, but a limited number of additional tickets have just been released, to access quote FLAVOUR on labevent.com

Ingredients

  • Duck egg
  • 1 shallot, sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 sprig of thyme
  • 100ml white wine
  • 300ml double cream
  • Handful mushrooms, chopped
  • Handful grated Gruyere cheese
  • Knob of butter
  • Olive oil

Method

1. Pre-heat the oven to 180C.

2. Sweat the shallots, garlic and thyme in a little olive oil for a few minutes. Before they start to colour, add the white wine and reduce, and then add the cream. Bring the sauce to the boil, strain and season.

3. Meanwhile, heat a knob of butter in a pan and sauté the mushrooms for a few minutes.

4. Butter a ramequin and line the bottom with some of the sautéed mushrooms, then a spoonful of sauce. Crack in the egg, followed by the remaining mushrooms and sauce, and finish with grated Gruyere cheese.

5. Bake in the oven for 5-6 minutes, until the egg in set.
