Warm Baby Octopus Salad

Kabocha

Zagat
Before diners get to the tender baby octopus in this warm salad, there is an obstacle in the way: a mysterious breaded orb begging to be broken open. Once done, a runny egg yolk pours onto the salad and combines with plum wine sauce to create a creamy dressing. [...] Thompson cooks the yolk sous vide and then places them in a half-sphere mold. The eggs are frozen and then glued to another half with more egg before taking another trip in the freezer. The egg orbs are coated in panko before cooking partially in a deep fryer and finishing under a dehydrating fan so the inside stays runny. [...] creates a tried-and-true texture - the perfectly runny egg yolk - using a thoroughly modern technique.
