Method:

Making the Tortoise Heads :
- Mix the crab meat with the avocado, tarragon, grapefruit, celery, salt and pepper.
- Mix with sauce and adjust seasoning.

Sauce :
- Mix egg, cream cheese, mustard, lemon juice, orange juice, salt, pepper, ketchup and cognac together until you have a smooth sauce.
- Transfer to another bowl and add 15g chopped tarragon.


To Serve :
- Take two chocory leaves and put a spoonful of filling in each.
- Place on a plate on top of a basil leaf.

Advice: Try making 'vegetable crisps' for a fun starter or snack : Thinly slice some beetroot, courgette, celery, carrots or any other vegetables you fancy, then arrange on an oven tray.
Cook at a very low heat for 30 minutes, by which time the vegetables will have lost their liquid and become crisp and crunchy, without any oil !
