Roasted Sweet Potato Soup Foam

Ingredients
3 to 4 sweet potatoes, cut into a large dice
Canola oil
Salt and pepper
200-400 grams chicken stock
1 piece of ginger, peeled and chopped.
10 grams molasses
20 grams thyme leaves
20 grams honey
200 grams heavy cream

For the Garnish
Small marshmallows
Thyme leaves
Walnuts, finely chopped
Molasses

 

Preparation

Preheat an oven to 232°C / 450°F.

Toss the sweet potato chunks with canola oil and salt and pepper. Spread out on a sheet pan and roast until the outsides have browned nicely, typically 20 to 30 minutes.

Place the roasted sweet potatoes into a pot with the chicken stock, ginger, molasses, and thyme. Cook until the sweet potatoes are very soft and the flavors have melded. Start with 200 grams of stock and add more as needed to keep it moist. Add the honey and cream then puree until very smooth using a blender. Strain through a chinois or cheese cloth if you want a finer texture.

Pour the sweet potato soup into your whipping siphon and charge with 1 N20 cream charger. If desired, heat the whipper in hot water until it is warm.

Dispense the soup into soup bowls or cups. Top the soup with the marshmallows, thyme leaves, and walnuts then finish with a drizzle of molasses.

Brown-Butter Sponge Cakes

INGREDIENTS
6 tablespoons unsalted butter
4 large eggs
3 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
3 tablespoons whole milk
1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
Nonstick cooking spray

Preparation
In a saucepan, cook the butter over moderate heat, swirling the pan, until the milk solids turn deep brown, 5 minutes. Let cool.
In a bowl, whisk the eggs with the sugar and salt until pale. Whisk in the milk. Whisk in the flour and the brown butter until the batter is very smooth and uniform in color.
Pour the batter into the canister of a 1 pint dispenser. Seal the siphon and charge it with one cream (N2O) cartridge. Shake the siphon vigorously.

Set the cup in a microwave oven and cook on high for 45 seconds, until the cake is fluffy and risen. Invert the cup onto a plate and let stand for at least 1 minute. Repeat with the remaining batter and cups. Remove and discard the cups. Serve right away.
