For the pea purée, blanch the peas in boiling water for 3 minutes until tender. Reserve 4 spoons of the peas for a garnish and blend the rest in a food processor until smooth

Make a beurre noisette. Heat the butter in a pan until it reaches a dark golden brown colour and has a nutty aroma. Heat the double cream in a separate saucepan over a gentle heat and add it to the pea mixture with a third of the beurre noisette. Pass through a sieve and chill immediately
  • 60g of butter
