• Debone the quail legs, keeping the smaller bone attached.  Lay them flat, season well and place a pitted prune in the middle of each one.

• Turn the celeriac and potatoes into a puree with 40 g of butter, a spoon of milk and the seasoning.  Reserve until use.

• Heat up some vegetable oil in a deep pan or use a fryer, take the quail legs out of the freezer and dip each one in the flour/beaten eggs and breadcrumbs. 

• Fry them briefly until golden and finish to cook in a oven at 180c for 10 minutes.

• Cook the wild mushrooms in a very hot pan with the rest of the butter and olive oil.  Season well and mix in the Ghoa cress at the end.

• With the help of a hand blender, blend together the persinette with a small amount of milk and season well.

• Reheat the puree, and take out the quail out of the oven.

• Dress the plates with the mushrooms and milk emulsion,  and enjoy hot.
