Goat cheese, honey and flowers salad





First recipe since a looong time! I wanted to cook something using flowers, and I was lucky to find some at the farmer's market last week. I love how they can bring some color to a dish, but also some original textures and tastes: some of them taste like pepper, anise or... oyster (not joking!).


You'll need:

For the salad:

- Salad (here I used rocket)
- Edible Flowers
- Italian ham

For the sauce:

- Honey
- Vinegar
- Hazelnut oil 
- Bits of nuts (if you like)

For the fried cheese balls:

- Goat cheese
- Honey
- Egg yolk
- Flour
- Very thin breadcrumbs


1. Two hours before preparing the dish, put some fresh goat cheese in the molds. With a teaspoon, make a very small hole in the middle of each half sphere of cheese and drop a few drops of honey, then put them in the deep freezer.

2. Take the half balls out of the deep freezer and out of their molds. Now you must be very quick: glue one sphere to another using some honey. Then, roll them first in the flour, then in the egg yolk, then in the breadcrumbs before frying them until they get nice and gold. 

3. Wash the salad and the flowers, and simply put them on the plate. Add the Italian ham and the fried cheese.

4. Prepare the sauce: mix all ingredients and add some salt and pepper if you like.




Première recette depuis looongtemps! je voulais préparer un plat en utilisant des fleurs comestibles, et j'ai eu la chance d'en trouver au marché la semaine dernière. J'aime beaucoup le fait qu'elles apportent de la couleur au plat, mais aussi une texture originale et des goûts surprenants: poivre, anis ou... huître (ce n'est pas une blague!).


Ingrédients:

Pour la salade:

- Salade (ici de la roquette)
- Fleurs comestibles
- Jambon cru italien

Pour la sauce:

- Miel
- Vinaigre
- Huile de noisette
- Petits morceaux de noisettes 

Pour les boules de chèvre frites

- Fromage de chèvre frais
- Miel
- Jaune d'oeuf
- Farine
- Chapelure


1. Deux heures avant de manger, répartir le fromage de chèvre frais dans des petits moules en demi sphère. Creuser un petit trou au milieu de chaque morceau et y verser quelques gouttes de miel. réserver au congélateur.

2. Sortir les moules du congélateur et démouler. Coller rapidement chaque demi sphère l'une à l'autre en utilisant le miel comme une colle. Ensuite, les rouler dans la farine, puis le jaune d'oeuf, puis la chapelure avant de les faire frire jusqu'à ce qu'ils prennent une coloration dorée.

3. Laver la salade et les fleur, puis les disposer sur une assiette avec le jambon cru italien et les chèvres frits.

4. Préparer la sauce: mélanger tous les ingrédients et assaisonner.

  29. Must state that looks very good with the goat cheese and with my time living in England and as well as trips to France and Belgium, I am most partial to French food.

    Always open to reciprocal followings. Please have a fine weekend.
