  3.  Confit the Mixed Baby Potatoes in the rendered beef fat until done, then season with sea salt.

Herb Mayonnaise

  2. Add egg yolks, garlic clove and cider vinegar to blender.
  3. Stream in oil until emulsified. Season to taste.

Pickled Mustard Seeds

  1. Take mustard seeds and desired vinegar, bring up to a boil, cover and reserve.

Cured Egg Yolk Purée

  1. Remove whites from yolks and reserve.
  2. Mix equal parts salt and sugar, then place half of the mixture into a half hotel pan.
  3. Make little wells for the yolks to nestle in and place inside, then cover with the reserved half of salt and sugar mixture.
  4. Let sit for 4 hours then take out and rinse. Pass through a fine mesh tamis and reserve.
