This technique is easy to realize and easy to adapt in a restaurant. Its time of realization is short;
although it is necessary to realize them shortly before to consume them. We can preserve them in some
water before raising them, to avoid drying out them.
This is a simple technique to make pearls giving a caviar texture with the savours of your choice.
This technique is however already present in other gourmet restaurants.

This technique is already a "classic".
III.8. How to create a mist.
III.8.1. Objective :
The aim of this study is to produce an effect of mist in a glass. The mist would be induced by a
warm white liquid (eggs, cream) poured into a glass cooled with ice cubes.
A recipe from “hotel and restaurant” is made with a fried fois gras with a warm duck stock poured
into a glass containing an ice cube. The picture shows a thick white smoke. Is this reproducible?

The day before, prepare ice cubes. For this, mix the sweet red pepper (remove the skin) with the
vinegar and 100 ml of duck stock, season. Freeze the cubes in a deep freeze.
15 min before serving, make a duck stock, reduce it in half, add the liquid cream and mix it with
the soft-boiled eggs, put it in a sauceboat.
Fry the foie gras, 1 minute on each side. Absorb the fat in excess using a absorbent paper.
Set the foie gras in a plate close to a frozen glass with one ice cube.
In front of your dinner guests, pour the boiling milk of duck on the ice cube. The thermic shock will
induce a mist which will get free of the glass.

We first used some water as the liquid poured in the glass, and an ice cube made from tap water
