Chef's B.A.BA

- You can make the soup in another way: brown 1 chopped onion in 20 g of butter, add the pieces of
potatoes and Jerusalem artichokes. Stir, add ½ liter of chicken broth and ½ milk and continue with the recipe.
- The duck breast can be replaced by thin slices of bacon.
- The only difficulty with this recipe lies in the peeling of the Jerusalem artichokes.

Cellar side:

If the realization of this dish is very simple, its taste, meanwhile, is enriched by the bread. This brings animal notes
and cheesy, as well as a crunchy dimension that enhances the soft, creamy and vegetal character of the soup, in which the common aromas of artichoke and Jerusalem artichoke reinforce each other.

In terms of agreement, one thinks quite naturally of a wine made from the Sauvignon grape variety, which we know is perfectly combined with goat cheese. In this case, we can choose either a Valençay, whose asparagus and nettle scents will support the soup, i.e. a Sauvignon from St Bris, the only Burgundy made from this grape variety, whose hints of boxwood and citrus fruit go more in the direction of the bread.

For amateurs, we can also take advantage of the arrival of early wines to make a marriage not of reason but of season with a Beaujolais Nouveau or one gamay de Loire primeur which, by their freshness and fruitiness, will add depth to the preparation.

Price idea:
- Valençay 4 to 7 €
- Sauvignon de st Bris 5 to 8 €
- Beaujolais nouveau 3 to 8 €
- Gamay de Loire primeur € 3 to € 6
