Tetsuya Wakuda's Marron with truffle mayonnaise recipe

Preparation time
10 minutes
Cooking time
1 hour
Serves
6

Although a complex Chardonnay would be beautiful with the marron, the addition of truffle and Madeira in the dish means it’s also perfect with Pinot Noir. We’d opt for a Yarra Valley Pinot Noir for a perfect pairing

Ingredients

  • 12 marron
  • 3 litres cold water
  • 1 large brown onion, chopped
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 2 sticks celery, thickly sliced
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 tsp peppercorns & sea salt
  • 1 tsp white wine vinegar
  • 1 cup whole egg mayonnaise
  • 1 x 80g jar Tetsuya Truffle Salsa
  • 160g unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 tbsp Madeira (optional)
  • 25g finely grated parmesan
  • 1 loaf miche bread (or malt rye, sourdough)
  • Shaved fresh truffle & micro herbs, to serve

Method

  1. To make the court-bouillon (broth), place the water, onion, carrot, celery, bay leaves, peppercorns, salt and vinegar in a large saucepan and bring to the boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer for
    30 minutes.
  2. Bring the broth back to the boil and put the marron head first into the pot, (in batches) taking care not to be splashed. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes, depending on size. Cook for a further minute once the marron has risen to the top of the pot. All cooked marron are a deep red colour, regardless of their shell colour ,when raw. Place in a bowl of iced water to stop the cooking process.
  3. When marron is cooled, remove the tail from the carapace (head portion). Break the tail in half and remove meat from shell.
    (This is done in the same way you would shell a prawn or crayfish). You now need to devein the marron in a similar fashion to
    how you would a crayfish or prawn.
  4. Meanwhile, combine mayonnaise with ½ jar (40g) truffle salsa in a bowl. Mix well. Combine remaining truffle salsa with butter, Madeira and parmesan cheese. Mix well.
  5. Serve marron in a large bowl with truffle mayonnaise, truffle butter and bread. Garnish with shaved truffle and micro herbs

Impress: Poh Ling Yeow
Words by Mark Hughes on 14 Jun 2017
It is so easy to fall in love with Poh Ling Yeow. She's wildly attractive, intelligent, funny and vivacious. She has a dazzling charisma, but at the same time is approachable. And she’s oh so talented. A professional artist before starring on the first season of Masterchef, she is now a true celebrity of the Australian food scene and host of her own show, Poh & Co., on SBS. “It’s really lovely to be back on a second season of Poh & Co. and working with friends and family, because ultimately that’s where I get all my inspiration from,” Poh tells me when we sit down for a chat on the set of our Impress photoshoot. “It’s a very truthful depiction of how I draw my ideas, the kind of everyday influences that I have and the people that I come in contact with. “The thing that I love about the show most is that it touches on very common, suburban aspirations, you know, wanting to have a vege patch or build your own pizza oven. It’s got currency in terms of people being able to relate to it very easily.” Working on TV and being able to chat with people from all walks of life has also benefitted Poh in the fact that she has been able to feel more secure about her own food identity. “I used to be very purist about the way I cooked, but now I’m relaxing and understanding what my identity is, which is a Malaysian-born Chinese Australian. So I feel like my food should absolutely reflect that. “Now I feel I have this license to be a little bit more free and playful with my food and it absolutely reflects what food is all about. It’s all about multiculture, about mixing ingredients and techniques.” The other exciting development in Poh’s life is opening her first restaurant, Jamface, in Adelaide’s Central Markets. “It’s actually just a little café – a very casual place. I’m cooking light breakfasts and lunches. The main focus is actually my pastry. I’m well known for my Asian food, but the thing that I absolutely love is French pastry. You should come down and check it out.” Watch our exclusive video interview with Poh:
