Preparation

Tip: once a step is done, you can click on it to cross it out and go to the next one.

  • In a saucepan, sweat the shallots in olive oil without browning.
  • Add the previously blanched plum tomatoes as well as the thyme, vinegar and maple syrup.
  • Reduce by evaporation until the tomatoes have lost their water (80%).
  • Drain the tomatoes to remove the maximum amount of juice and discard the thyme.
  • In a small saucepan, reduce the tomato juice until syrupy.
  • Using a mixer, purée the tomatoes, gradually incorporating the reduced juice. Add salt and pepper only at the end. Refrigerate.
  • Place the cherry tomatoes on parchment paper, lightly oil and season.
  • Bake at 250°F (120°C) for 30 minutes or until tomatoes look like gumdrops. Refrigerate.
  • In a double boiler, melt the Brie Le Manoir Double Crème with 125 ml (½ cup) of liquid cream and let cool to room temperature.
  • In another bowl, whisk 75 ml (5 tbsp.) of cream.
  • Once peaks start forming, add the juice of half a lemon. Refrigerate.
  • When the Brie mix has cooled, fold the whipped cream into it. Refrigerate.
  • On parchment paper, place the prosciutto slices and dry in oven at 250°F (120°C) until lightly coloured. Set aside at room temperature—they will eventually dry out.

Presentation

  • Spread a generous amount of coulis on the plate, and place the tomatoes, Brie mousse (with a spoon) and prosciutto chips.
  • Finish with a few greens seasoned to taste.
