Beet & Burrata salad by Eric Briffard
From his kitchen at Le Cordon Bleu Paris, the Executive Chef and Culinary Arts Director – Eric Briffard – is cooking the first salad for sunny days. With his beet & burrata salad, you have found a perfect alternative to tomatoes that are usually unavailable this season.
1 orange beet
1 red beet
1 pack of coarse salt
1 burrata di Buffala
Step 1 – cooking
For each beet :
- Clean and brush away any dirt or impurities
- With paper foil, create a container and lay pre-moist coarse salt in the bottom.
- Center well your beet so that it does not move. Then recover it all with the rest of the coarse salt.
- Put in the oven at 150°C for 1h30.
Tips: It’s best to cook beets with coarse salt than water. Therefore, you will save water and agree to Less Saves The Planet precepts.
Step 2 – Cutting
Still for every beet:
- Take out of the oven and break the salt crust to get to the cooked beet.
- After dusting away the salt, cut it into quarters.
Step 3 – presentation
- In a plate, place your quarters of beet.
- Cut in four the burrata di Buffala.
- Put them down next to each beet.
- For a fruitier flavour, add pomegranate seeds.
- Decorate with basil leaves and grate ground pepper on the burrata.
- Finish off with roasted hazelnuts and a drizzle of pomegranate treacle.
And that’s it, all you have to do is enjoy this dish cold, warm or hot depending on your mood.
