Here’s your chance to turn your very own kitchen into a star restaurant: Austrian top chef Klemens Schraml from restaurant Rau shares one of his favourite recipes with us, so you can recreate it at home. In this creative recipe, he shows you how to make cabbage turnip with escabeche, apple salad with 40-month old Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, and forest clover dressing. Parmigiano Reggiano is made using raw milk, salt, and rennet, and absolutely no additives or preservatives. Due to its versatility, it can be used in a wide range of different dishes, with each age having its own unique aroma and flavour.
Start by mixing water and sugar in a heated pan until you see very light caramel starting to form. Pour this out on both types of vinegar and reduce it by 50%. Then sauté the vegetables and garlic with olive oil until colourless. Add vegetables, mineral water, mustard seeds, laurel leaves, orange zest, and peppercorns to the vinegar reduction and reduce to 1/3. Place all herbs on top and let it simmer for 15 minutes without heat. Then pass the brew through a cloth and heat it again. Add the saffron threads, and season with salt. Finally, thicken the brew with a little xanthan gum until it is perfectly smooth.
