Begin this whole chicken recipe by making the stock. Place the ingredients for the poaching stock into a large saucepan and fill with warm water

  • 1/4 bunch of thyme
  • 1/4 bunch of tarragon
  • 4 garlic cloves

Bring to a gentle simmer, then add the chicken, topping up with more water if necessary. Cover with a lid and simmer very gently for 40 minutes
  • 1 free-range chicken
3
Remove the chicken from the stock and allow to dry off slightly. Strain the stock into a clean saucepan, bring to the boil and continue to boil gently until it has reduced to a third

Remove the pan from the heat and whisk in the mustard and cream. When ready to serve, reheat gently and whisk in the chopped tarragon

For the cauliflower, put a chargrill pan over a very high heat whilst blanching the cauliflower for 3 minutes in seasoned boiling water, then drain
