Port wine
Fresh tarragon
Watercress

Season whole chicken livers with salt and freshly ground black pepper, and sauté with finely chopped onion in butter until chicken livers are cooked through, but still a little pink inside. Remove from pan and drain well on paper towels.

Place 3 leaves of fresh tarragon in the bottom of each mould (or ramekin). Then place chicken livers in moulds and fill to the top with the port flavoured aspic. Chill in refrigerator for at least 2 hours.

When ready to serve: loosen apsic from sides of moulds with your fingers and turn out on to a serving plate. Garnish with sprigs of fresh watercress and, if desired, a little chopped aspic.

½ to 1 pound veal shank
1 or 2 fee of veal
3 or 6 shallots

  2. Place the ham in a large saucepan. Add the veal shank, calf’s foot or feet, shallots and herbs. Pepper. Add the wine. Cook over very low heat until a tablespoon of the liquid dropped on a cold dish jellies; this should take about 20 minutes per pound of meat.

  4. Alternate layers of parsley and ham in a large bowl.

For 4 people, use 2 pounds of ham; for a larger group, the whole ham. If you do not have a large serving bowl, use several small ones.
This dish keeps very well if refrigerated.

Daube Froide/Beef in Aspic (Réunion Island)

ingredients:
2 pounds thinly sliced lean beef (from the rump or round)
¼ pound lean bacon strips
2 onions
2 shallots
2 cloves garlic
1 handful parsley
1 sprig thyme, or ½ teaspoon dried
1 bay leaf
salt, pepper
nutmeg
4 ounces fresh bacon fat
1 Tablespoon flour
2 cups dry white wine
1 calf’s foot
1 teaspoon agar-agar or Japanese Moss
1 cup beef bouillon

instructions:

  1. Flatten the beef slices and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Chop one onion, the shallots, garlic and parsley. Sprinkle in the finely chopped thyme and bay leaf. Add salt, pepper, and grated nutmeg to taste. Mix thoroughly.
  3. On each slice of beef place a slice of bacon and spread some of the herb mixture on it. Pile the seasoned slices into a “tower” and press as flat as possible. End with a slice of beef, then tie the entire pile together with string so it will not fall apart while cooking.
  4. Mince the bacon fat and the remaining onion, sprinkle with flour, and add any remaining herb mixture there may be. Brown lightly in a Dutch oven. Add the wine, the calf’s foot, and the securely-tied beef slices. Cover and cook over low heat for 3 hours.
  5. When done, remove the meat from the pot. Dissolve the agar-agar in the bouillon and add it to the liquid in the Dutch oven.
  6. Place the meat into a mold and strain the liquid over it. Refrigerate. The sauce will jell. Unmold when ready to serve, and garnish with sprigs of parsley.

This dish is ideal for a meal served outdoors. As agar-agar and Japanese Moss are not readily obtainable, plan unflavored gelatine may be substituted, using a little less liquid than the instructions call for, in order to obtain a stiffer gelatine.
