Shape mixture into quenelles with two lightly floured dessert spoons and place on trays lined with baking paper.

  • 03
  • Heat butter in a large frying pan over medium heat until nut brown (3-4 minutes). Add raviules and stir to coat, then sauté, turning occasionally, until golden brown (2-3 minutes). Add remaining garlic and chervil, stir to combine and serve with squab braised with juniper.
