Method

  1. Brown the carrots in butter, in the casserole dish (for 3 minutes). 
  2. Add the button mushrooms, cook for 5 minutes, add the celtuce heart, cut into thick slices. Cook for a further 5 minutes, with the lid on.  
  3. Turn off the heat, add the carrot juice and leave to rest. 
  4. Brown the squid in olive oil and fresh butter for 30 seconds.  
  5. Season lightly.  
  6. Season the celtuce leaves with a little olive oil. 
  7. Arrange harmoniously on a plate. 
The flavors brought out by the champagne are the general sweetness of the carrots, button mushrooms and carrot juice, enhanced by the unusual flavor of the squid. The carrot and champagne pairing is smooth, with no aggressiveness, no acidity, a delightful crispness and a wonderful scent of carotene
