“Spinach with fried egg and potatoes is a classic dish from my childhood. We ate it at home, in kindergarten, and at school. Most of the times it was slightly overcooked spinach and dry egg, but of course, the classic version can be made fresh and delicious. To make an ungraded, fancier version, I took the whole dish apart and put it back together to create a creamy, comforting dish. If you prefer, you can pick and choose from the components in the recipe and use them to add a twist to your favourite recipes. The potato foam, for example, is a simple way to enhance your dishes and make them a little more fancy.”

    To make the potato foam, peel the floury potatoes, cut them into quarters, and boil them in salted water until soft, approx. 15 min. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, heat the milk with the butter, nutmeg and a pinch of salt. Remove from heat. When the potatoes are soft, drain and reserve cooking water.

    To make the crispy potato topping, peel the waxy potatoes and cut them into approx. 1cm/½ inch cubes. Fill a large bowl with cold water and wash the potato cubes in it. Repeat until the water runs clear, then drain, and pat the potato cubes dry. Heat some vegetable oil in a frying pan, add the potato cubes, and fry until crispy. Add salt. Keep warm until serving.

    To make the creamed spinach sauce, fill a pot with water and bring to a boil. Add salt to the boiling water. Add the spinach to the boiling water and blanch for approx. 30 sec. Remove spinach with a slotted spoon and immediately plunge into a bowl of ice water. Drain spinach, pat the spinach dry, chop roughly, and finely puree in a blender. Zest lemon. In a pot, heat the chicken stock, cream, and crème fraîche. Add the spinach purée and season with nutmeg, lemon zest, salt, and pepper. Pass the sauce through a fine sieve. Lastly, stir in the arctic char caviar. Set aside until serving.

    • 1 tbsp olive oil
    • 2 tsp white wine vinegar

  • Step 5/7

    • eggs
    • pot

    To make the crispy eggs, first bring a pot of water to a boil. Reserve one egg for the breading mixture. Gently add the rest of the eggs to the boiling water and cook them for approx. 6 minutes. Drain and immediately rinse them with cold water. Peel the eggs.

    Set up the breading station: Add the reserved egg to a large bowl and beat it. Add salt. Add the flour to a second bowl. Add the panko breadcrumbs to a third bowl. Gently roll a boiled egg in flour until coated. Next, coat it in the beaten egg, and lastly, in the panko breadcrumbs. Repeat process for each egg. Add approx. a thumb’s width of vegetable oil for deep frying to the pot and heat it for approx. 2 - 4 min. To check the temperature, dip the tip of a wooden cooking spoon into the oil, if small bubbles rise up around it, the oil is ready. Add the breaded eggs to the pot and fry them for approx. 2 min. until crispy.

    Before plating, set up the whipping siphon for the potato foam. Using a funnel, fill the mixture into whipping siphon. Close the whipping siphon firmly, then fill with the cream charger and shake vigorously. Pipe a layer of foam into the bowl. Scatter some salad on top of the foam. Place the egg on top, scatter the crispy potato cubes around the foam and lastly, add a little of the creamed spinach sauce. Enjoy!
