Executive Chef Drew Sayes from The Rugby Grill at the Townsend Hotel will prepare the following: Pan Seared Diver Scallop, Black Garlic Cavatelli, Brown Butter Golden Beet Purée, Chanterelle Mushroom Conserva, Salmon Roe

Chanterelle Mushroom Conserva

1 ea Sprig of Rosemary
1 t Piment d'Espelette
4 ea Sprigs of Thyme
2 ea Bay Leaves
2 C Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 # Chanterelles
3 T Sherry Vinegar
As Needed Sea Salt & Freshly Cracked Black Pepper

Just before cooking, rinse the mushrooms as necessary to remove any dirt. Trim the end of other stems as well as any bruised areas.  Cut the mushrooms into pieces. Small mushrooms can be left whole, larger mushrooms can be cut into chunks or slices.   Combine the olive oil, bay leaves, thyme sprigs, rosemary and piment d'Espelette in a large, wide saucepan over medium to medium-high heat until the oil reaches 170o.  Add the mushrooms to the pot and gently turn them in the oil. When the oil reaches 170o again, adjust the heat as necessary to retain the temperature and cook for 5 minutes, gently turning the mushrooms from time to time. The mushrooms will not initially be submerged in the oil, but will wilt as they steep.  Remove from the heat, stir in the vinegar, add salt and pepper to taste, and let the mushrooms steep in the oil for 45 minutes.  Transfer the mushrooms, oil and herbs to a covered storage container; the mushrooms should be covered by the oil.

½# Unsalted Butter

Method:    Heat the butter on medium heat until the milk solids begin to brown.  Once the butter is lightly toasted, set aside.  After roasting and peeling the beets, place into a vita prep blender and puree until smooth.  Add the agar and continue pureeing the mixture.  Slowly pour the brown butter into the beet puree until fully incorporated.  Adjust seasoning with sherry vinegar, salt, and white pepper.
