Boneless Quails with Forest mushrooms

1 bag Parisian Carrots

1 bag Forest Mushroom Mix

36 pc Small Artichoke Bottoms

2 Echire Unsalted Butter Cups

3 oz Shallots

6 Potato Rosettes

12 pc Quail

6 oz Cooked Ham

1/2 pint Heavy Cream

1 tsp Cognac

  • 1. Sauté the frozen mushrooms until the water reduces and chop them finely.
  • 2. Sauté the shallots and ham thinly diced then add the mushrooms. Flambé with cognac and add the cream, salt and pepper. Cook slowly for few minutes.
  • 3. Boned the quail from each side so you do not cut the skin to open them. Stuff them with the preparation above. Put a small knob of butter on each quail and a branch of thyme.
  • 4. Roll the bird in an aluminum foil.
  • 5. Preheat a sauté pan in a very hot oven (475°F) and put the quails inside. After 5 minutes, turn over the quails and finish cooking them for about 10 minutes.
  • 6. During that time sauté the artichokes bottoms with olive oil and finish cooking them in the quail juice.
  • 7. Cook the carrots in boiling water. Cool down in cold water.
  • 8. Put 2 quails on a potato rosette in the middle of the plate and 3 artichokes bottoms around topped with carrots.
  • 9. Sauce: Quail juice.
