Waldorf Soup

By Executive Sous Chef Ramit Kohli

Soup

  • Remove the core of the apples and chop roughly. Finely chop one celery stick and keep aside.

  • Add apples and chopped celery to the pan and sauté for another 5 minutes on medium heat
  • Add the vegetable stock and seasoning. Mix well. Cover and bring to a boil. Simmer for 15 mins till the ingredients soften.
  • Once the soup is well cooked, remove the bay leaf and puree until smooth. 
  • Strain the soup through fine sieve and mix in a spoon of cream. Adjust seasoning.
  1. Walnut dust
  • In another pan, toast walnuts over medium heat. Ensure that pan is shaken well during the process to prevent burning. Allow the nuts to cool.  
  • Once cooled down, grind the walnuts to a fine powder and strain to prepare walnut dust. 

Celery cream caviar

  • Mince the second celery stick and pass it through a sieve. In pan, add this minced celery, the remaining cream, salt, agar agar powder and bring to a boil. Once done, pour the mixture through a dropper into chilled oil.
  • Using a spoon, gently remove the freshly made celery cream caviar and wash the pearls under running water.
