Alex Haupt: "At 101 Gowrie we use the Zeeland flat oysters if available. The salty character and fruitiness, but especially its excellent taste, we love to present to our guests."
- caper powder
- Oyster Leaves
- Zeeland flat oysters
For the dried carrot and granita:
- 2 large winter carrots
- 350 g shallot
- 50 g of ginger
- 450 g of white wine
- 5 pcs bay leaf
- 5 l freshly squeezed carrot juice
- 10 g orange zest
Cut the oyster meat into 1 cm cubes and reserve them at 2°C. Steam the winter carrots in the oven at 100°C and cut 2 cm slices when they have cooled.
Dry them at 65°C for 6-8 hours, seal them with some granita liquid to dehydrate. For the granita, chop the ginger and shallot and sauté with a small amount of oil.
Cook without colours, deglaze with the white wine and add the bay leaves. Reduce the moisture, add 3 litres of carrot juice, reduce by half and add the remaining juice.
Infuse for 30 minutes, pass through a sieve and make a granita. Serve the ice-cold cubes of oyster on a small plate.
Make small cubes of the dehydrated carrot and spoon on the oyster with the caper powder. Spoon the granita over the oyster and cover with Oyster Leaves.
