Turkey mousse:

600g turkey breast

2 whole eggs

2 egg yolks

200ml double cream

Salt and pepper to taste

Sauce filling:

500g turkey thigh, skinned, trimmed and diced

500ml Essential Cuisine Signature Beef Jus

500ml Essential Cuisine Chicken Stock Reduction

200ml red wine

1 carrot, peeled and fine brunoise, blanched

1 parsnip, peeled and brunoise, blanched

20g flat parsley, chopped

300g creppinette

Premier Veal Jus bubble:

62g Essential Cuisine Premier Veal Jus

500ml water

10g Sosa Gluconolactat

5g Sosa Alginate

1ltr water 


For the turkey mousse:

1. Blend the turkey breast until smooth.

2. Add the eggs and egg yolks. Blend again. Add salt and pepper. 

3. Add the cream to make a smooth mousse. Roll a ball of this in clingfilm and poach in boiling water until hard.

4. Check consistency and taste. Correct both, then chill until needed.

For the sauce filling: 

1. Gently fry the diced turkey thigh, until starting to colour. 

2. Add the wine and reduce by two thirds. Add the stocks and simmer gently until the turkey is cooked. 

3. Strain out the thigh and set aside. 

4. Continue to reduce the stocks until quite thick. Mix back into the thighs with the vegetables and the parsley. Set in a deep container. When set, cut into 4cm cubes.

Premier Veal Jus bubble: 

1. Mix the Premier Veal Jus into the 500ml water. Bring to the boil, whisking constantly. Simmer for 2 minutes. Blend in the gluconolactat. Set aside, preferably overnight.

2. Blend the alginate into the 1ltr water. Spoon the veal jus into the alginate solution. Leave for approximately 1 minute or until starting to set, then carefully remove and refresh in a bowl of clean water. Set aside until needed. 


1. Lay out the creppinette. Spoon a square of mousse into the middle. Place a cube of turkey leg jus onto this, then cover the tops and sides with more mousse. Wrap gently with the creppinette. Set in the fridge for 15 minutes. 

2. Fry gently on all side in a little butter until starting to colour. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes 180°C until firm to the touch.

3. Place in centre of the plate. Heat the veal jus bubble in water and place on top.

4. Garnish with seasonal vegetables.
