Preparation steps

  1. Country bread

    A few days before making the bread, prepare the rye starter. Knead for 15 minutes + 5 minutes after adding the soaking water. Let it rise for 3 hours with 2 turns in the middle. Shape and place in a floured banneton. Allow to proof for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Bake in a deck oven, decreasing the temperature (20 minutes at 240°C, then 20 minutes at 220°C, and finally 20 minutes at 200°C). Let it cool.

  2. Red onion confit

    Place all the ingredients in a saucepan and simmer until the liquid fully evaporates (2 to 3 hours).

  3. Fig confit

    Heat the purple fig puree to 45°C. Gradually add the powders and boil for about 1 minute. Add the lemon puree. Blend and transfer to a gastronorm container with a film in contact. Cool to room temperature and then refrigerate. For 150 g of fig confit, add 75 g of fig high fruit compote.

  4. Duck foie gras with Timut pepper

    Devein the foie gras as much as possible without damaging the lobe. Season with fine salt and Timut pepper. Arrange the foie gras pieces on plastic wrap and make a ballotine by rolling the foie in a cylinder shape, tightening the film as much as possible. Then, roll the cylinder forward while holding one side to tighten it. Tie a knot. Repeat the same operation on the other side. Vacuum-seal the ballotine. Cook in a water bath at 60°C for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Let it rest for 15 minutes after cooking in the pot. Remove from the water, pierce and drain the fat. Make a new ballotine and immerse it in ice-cold water. Refrigerate for 24 hours. Slice into thin pieces.

  5. Assembly

    Slice the country bread into 0.5cm thick slices. Top with approximately 20 g of fig confit. Then, arrange the foie gras and slices of smoked duck breast. Decorate with arugula and fresh fig segments.
