Grilled, smoked scallops with stewed chicken ravioli and sauce suprême

Chez Ruffet
Chef: Stéphane Carrade
Country: France
City: 64110 Jurançon
Address: 3, avenue Charles Touzet

This dish expresses all wonder of the philosophy and laboriousness that defines the cuisine of Stéphane Carrade’s–a chef who has succeeded in putting forth a completely personal message… a combination which, it must be said, can wear on a guest at times for its exhaustive baroque style. Nonetheless, exuberance is coupled with wonder with two ultimate values: select products and an immaculate way of communicating them to the guest.
A supreme testimony to this element is found in these scallops. Excellent in and of themselves, seared and smoked, clean and powerful, offered alongside a succulent chicken ravioli with vegetables and juices, crowned with truffles and flowers as well as an attractive, refreshing green mango mirepoix seasoned with Espelette pepper and ginger, topped with an exciting adornment of sweet corn and bacon foam. It would be hard to find more purity, more complexity, more art and such beauty in a single dish.
