- Start by putting G 450 of the butter in a saucepan together with the small yellow onions and the potatoes, a few sprigs of rosemary and thyme and 3 crushed cloves of garlic. Let the butter melt and simmer on medium heat until the potatoes are completely soft.
- Pick up the potatoes and let the onions continue to jam until completely soft. Take the onions and let them cool slightly. Mix them together with the egg yolk and add a little of the melted butter. Season with salt and pepper.
- Heat a frying pan with rapeseed oil. Salt the capercaillie all around and brown it on both sides. Lower the heat and add G 50 butter, herbs and 1 clove of garlic. Spoon the capercaillie with the butter and set aside.
- Place the bird on an ovenproof dish and run it in the oven at 150° (302 F) to an internal temperature of 53° (127,4 F). Let rest for at least 5’ before serving.
- Add a little more butter to the frying pan you just fried the capercaillie in, chop the shallots and put it in the pan. Add wine, 80 ml game stock, gin and some junipers. Let this reduce for 20’, strain to another saucepan and reduce to the desired consistency and taste. Butter the sauce just before serving and add the blueberries.
- In a frying pan, heat the confit butter, previously set aside, removing the red onions and add the chanterelles. Once half-cooked, add the small red onions as well. Put in the confit potatoes and let it get color. Pour in 1 tablespoon of the sauce and the remaining game stock.
- Stir around so the potatoes, onions and chanterelles are glazed.
- Place the potatoes and the meat on a serving dish and garnish the capercaillie with blueberry sauce.
