Nicolas Poelaert, the French chef who won praise at Brooks and Embrasse restaurants in Melbourne, is now making waves with his choux-pastry smarts in Newcastle.

Soy-milk custard and crab


"A delicate dish, served cold," says McConnell. "For best results, cook the crab fresh on the day."

You'll need

250 ml (1 cup) soy milk 5 gm bonito flakes 1 egg 1 egg yolk 1 tbsp light soy sauce 150 gm picked blue swimmer or spanner crab meat 1 tsp finely chopped chives To serve: coriander cress   Tomato dressing 2 very ripe large tomatoes 1 tbsp white or light soy sauce 2 tbsp grapeseed oil ½ tsp sesame oil

Method

  • 01
  • Warm soy milk to 70C in a saucepan over low heat. Add the bonito flakes and a pinch of white pepper and set aside to infuse (10 minutes). Whisk the egg and yolk with the soy sauce in a bowl to combine. Strain the soy milk into the egg mixture and whisk to combine. Season with salt to taste. Pour into 4 x 150ml bowls or 1 x 600ml ramekin to a depth of no more than 2cm.
  • 02
  • Cook custards in a steamer over medium heat, checking every 2 minutes, until just set to ensure the custard has a silken texture (5-10 minutes). Remove and refrigerate to cool (2-3 hours).
  • 03
  • For tomato dressing, grate the tomatoes on a box grater (the pulp and seeds will work through the grater). Discard the skin and drain pulp in a sieve for 10 minutes. In a bowl, combine tomato pulp, soy sauce, grapeseed oil and sesame oil. Season to taste.
  • 04
  • Ten minutes before serving, remove custards from the fridge and season crabmeat with a pinch of sea salt flakes. Spoon the tomato pulp over the custard and top with crabmeat, scatter with chives and coriander cress, and serve.
