  • 3 celery sticks
  • 1 large onion
  • 1 leek
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 bouquet garni
  • 6l water
2
Leave to cool in the liquor, then remove the head from the pan, pick all of the meat off the head and reserve. Strain the cooking liquor into a clean pan and reserve
3
Weigh out 450g of head meat and place in a bowl. Sweat the shallots and sage in a dash of oil, then add to the bowl with the meat
  • olive oil
  • 100g of shallots, cut into brunoise

  • 4 sprigs of flat-leaf parsley, leaves picked and chopped

To make the mustard, toast half of the mustard seeds in a dry pan until golden, then blitz in a spice grinder with the un-toasted seeds until they form a fine powder

For the pickled onions, bring the vinegar, olive oil, sugar, salt and coriander seeds to the boil, then drop in the onions and remove from the heat. Leave for 24 hours to pickle
