Jean-François Piège shares with you every Saturday on Point its cooking secrets by putting a seasonal product on the front of the plate. After the Vichy carrots last week, the 2-star chef of the Grand Restaurant in Paris has another great classic of French cuisine in store for you today: carrot puree. A basic recipe that can be applied to many other vegetables. Slices of carrots, cubes of butter, mineral water, fine salt and you’re done. We gather all these little people in a saucepan to tackle the cooking. All you have to do is add the double cream (or liquid) and mix everything in a mixer bowl until you obtain a fine and smooth texture. You will see, it’s simple, fast and unmissable. Now it’s up to you to do it again. Treat yourself.
