Chicory Bites with the GREY GOOSE Noël Rouge


Chicory Bites with smoked duck, pomegranate and mint paired with GREY GOOSE Noe¦êl RougeChicory Bites


2-3 heads of chicory (12 cups)

100g smoked duck breast, chopped

80g pomegranate

A handful of small mint leaves, chopped

A small handful of parsley, finely chopped

25g walnuts, chopped

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

Sea salt and black pepper

½ red chili, finely chopped



Wash and dry the chicory, and break apart carefully, saving the larger leaves for a salad (they will likely be too big for canapés). Trim the bottoms of the longer leaves and arrange on a plate. Finely slice the smoked duck and add it to a large bowl, with the herbs, chili, walnuts and pomegranate. Drizzle over the olive oil and balsamic, season and toss together. Taste and adjust the seasoning, if required. Add a teaspoon of the smoked duck mixture to each of the chicory cups and arrange on a platter. Finish with a final scattering of herbs.

Devilled Eggs with GREY GOOSE and beetroot caviar paired with GREY GOOSE E¦ütoile de Picardie

Deviled Eggs


6 eggs, hard boiled

2 small beetroots, washed and trimmed

1 heaped tablespoon GREY GOOSE vodka

1 large garlic clove, peeled and grated

1 tablespoon lemon juice

¼ cup chopped and toasted hazelnuts

1 small stalk rosemary leaves

½ teaspoon fine sea salt

2 tablespoons fresh chives, finely chopped



Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius, with a rack in the center. Puncture the beetroots with a fork a few times, and wrap each in foil. Roast for an hour, or until the beets are completely tender when you test by cutting into the center with a knife. Halve the boiled eggs and remove the yolks, set both the yolks and whites aside in bowls. When the beetroots are cooked and cool enough to peel, remove the skins and add to the food processor with the egg yolks, GREY GOOSE, rosemary, garlic, lemon juice, half the hazelnuts and a good pinch of salt. Blend until the texture is to your liking, you’re looking for a rough, caviar-like texture not a puree. Fill the hollowed-out eggs with the beetroot caviar. Top with the remaining crushed hazelnuts and chives.

Mushroom Pâté Bites



15g Dried cep or porcini mushrooms

½ cup boiling water

1tbsp olive oil

2 tbsp butter, divided

1 small onion, finely chopped

2 cloves garlic

Coarse sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

350g mixed French mushrooms, girolles and chanterelles

1 heaped tsp fresh thyme leaves, plus extra to serve

2 tsp parsley

A dash of port

¼ lemon, juiced

Crème fraiche, to top (optional)

12 mini sable biscuits or toasted baguette



Combine the fried mushrooms and boiling water in a small bowl and let soak for 30 minutes. Heat olive oil and 1 tablespoon butter over medium-high heat. Add onions and cook for 7-8 minutes, until they become soft and translucent. Add the garlic and continue to cook for a further two minutes. Raise heat to high and add the fresh mushrooms, thyme, salt and pepper. Cook until mushroom brown further and release their liquid. Continue to move the mushrooms in the pan until all of the liquid has evaporated, then add soaked mushrooms and their soaking liquid. Cook the liquid almost completely off. You want to be able to drag a spoon through the mushrooms and leave a path. Add a dash of port and continue to cook for a couple of minutes, until the alcohol evaporates. Season the mixture to taste. Stir through the last of the butter. Let the mixture cool for 15 minute, then blend in a food processor, or blender, until the mushrooms reach the texture of a fine smooth pâté.  Chill in fridge for a few hours before serving, giving the flavors a chance to settle. The pâté will keep in the fridge for 5 days in an airtight container. When ready to serve,

place a heaped teaspoon of the pâté on each biscuit. Finish with a grind of black pepper, a few fresh thyme leaves and a little dollop of crème fraîche.
