Demo: Chef Yann Plassard

Today was a special day at Ferrandi as we welcomed Chef Yann Plassard, of 2 Michelin-star “La Fleur de Sel” into our kitchen to give us a cooking (and tasting) demo of some of his creative dishes.
Chef Plassard’s serves carefully prepared food from the Brittany region but keeps busy with his 3 restaurants and his sous-chef of 12 years.

2. Chair de tourteaux, crémeux de chou-fleur, cappuccino de tourteau et tartare d’herbes (Crab meat, cauliflower cream, cappuccino of crab and herb tartar)
