To Complete

  • Pipe dots of balsamic glaze along one side of each serving plate (chill plates for a few hours before).
  • Place a larger dot of chive oil in the center of each plate.
  • Tope each pool of chive oil with a spoonful of tomato tartare, place a quenelle, or small scoop, of sorbet on the tartare, and sprinkle with a few grains of fleur de self.
  • Lean a garlic tuile on each quenelle of sorbet and serve immediately.
