An awesome present from a friend who is venturing into the world of smoking. Nice head of garlic and chillis, the aromas are pretty amazing, need to find a worthy recipe to use them in. Suggestions welcomed.
Gotta be something Basque / Catalan eh ? Maybe Basque chicken or how about a hot version of Basque garlic soup ?
You will need four 150ml-capacity ramekins for this recipe.
12 garlic cloves, peeled
1 bouquet garni*
100g soft goat’s cheese
2 egg yolks
250ml (1 cup) cream
Black olives, prosciutto, roasted red capsicum and chargrilled bread, to serve
Preheat the oven to 150°C. Grease the ramekins.
Place milk, garlic and bouquet garni in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook for 15 minutes until garlic softens. Remove from heat and strain, discarding bouquet garni.
Place the infused milk, garlic cloves and goat’s cheese in a food processor and process until smooth.
Beat together the eggs, egg yolks and cream in a small bowl. Season well with salt and pepper. Stir into the garlic puree, then pour into the greased ramekins.
Prepare a bain marie by placing a folded tea towel in the base of a medium baking dish (to provide further insulation to custards) and pour in water to halfway up the sides. Place ramekins in bain marie and bake for 30 minutes or until just set. Set aside to cool, then refrigerate for 30 minutes to chill. Bring back to room temperature and serve with a plate of antipasti such as olives, prosciutto and chargrilled bread.
