250 ml goat’s-milk kefir
250 ml water
half a tablespoon chicken stock powder
150 g goat’s-milk cheese
7.5 g agar
5 g gelatine (soaked)

Roughly slice leek and wash under cold water.  Sweat in olive oil until soft. Add kefir, water, goat’s-milk cheese and chicken stock. Bring to the boil and make sure cheese is melted. Blend this mixture and pass through a sieve. Transfer the strained mass to a new pot and check seasoning. Add the agar.  Cook for 3 minutes while whisking. Add the soaked gelatine. Pour the liquid into moulds. Freeze and turn out once set. Should be slightly warmer than room temperature when plated.

1 kg roasted beef bones
water to cover
500 ml red wine

Scorch the washed and prepared vegetables and thyme in a big pot on high heat. Add the beef bones, water and wine. Simmer for at least 24 hours on low heat, skimming off as much fat from the top as possible. Strain the stock through a fine sieve. Reduce the stock until it is thick enough (should be a consistency a bit thinner than marmite).
