The Stone by Chef Kay Baumgardt
Roasted Rye Flour / Green Apple / Yoghurt / Parsley
Rye Flour Cream
65g Roasted Rye Flour 60g Cane Sugar
25g Honey 40g Inulin
160g Egg White
8g bloomed Gelatin
Pinch of Salt, little bit of Apple Kombucha
Combine the Egg White with the Inulin and whip it until stiff. Put the Gelatin Sheets in cold water for 10 minutes, squeeze the Gelatin, to get all the Water out. Now you combine all the other ingredients, make sure that the Cream is perfect seasoned with salt and kombucha. Put the Gelatine in a pan or microwave to heat it up. Not to warm!! Pour in into the Mix and whisk very well. At last you fold in the Egg White / Inulin Mix. Be careful …. Don´t whisk it too much. Slightly with a spatula is perfect.
