Step 1

To make the sausages, soak the breadcrumbs with the milk. Let stand for 20mins. Once milk has been absorbed add veal, chicken, egg white, tarragon and breadcrumbs in a processor and pulse until it starts to become smooth. Add the cream bit by bit until combined and you have a thick puree. Lightly season.

Step 2

Fold in the cubed puree, put into a piping bag with a 2cm open end or nozzle. Pipe enough mixture into oiled cling-film to create a long sausage. Fold the cling-film carefully and wrap until it is tight and creating a sausage shape. Put to rest in the fridge.

Step 3

Prepare the smoked potato. Char the skins on an open flame, wrap in foil then bake for one hour at 180c. Remove the flesh, pass through a ricer, add the milk and butter, season.

Step 4

For the mushrooms, combine the breadcrumbs, herbs and a little oil in a food processor. Bake the mushrooms at 180c for 10 mins, spoon in the breadcrumb mixture. Return to the oven for another 10mins.

Step 5

Heat the sugar in a pan until you can smell caramel and it's a lovely brown colour. Add the butter and lower the heat, put in the apples. Cook them for a couple of minutes aside and keep turning until they are soft. About 10 mins.

Step 6

To cook the boudin blancs, bring a large pan of water to a rolling boil. Add the sausages in their cling-film. Poach for 15mins. When cooked it will have the same texture of cooked chicken, immediate spring back. Remove the sausages from the pan and wrapping, brown in a pan to give the look of a normal sausage.
