Shallot Foam recipe by Chef Louisa Ellis


  • 200g sliced shallots

  • 6 crushed garlic cloves

  • 50ml olive oil

  • 1 tsp flaky sea salt

  • 200ml white wine

  • 500 ml cream

  • 50g proespuma

  • Lovage oil & crispy onion to garnish

  • 3 nitrous chargers


  1. Sweat the shallots & garlic in a pan with the olive oil and a tsp of flaky sea salt until soft and sweet. This will take around 15-20 minutes on a low heat.

  2. Turn the heat up onto full and add the white wine. Reduce the wine by half and then add the cream.

  3. Remove the pan from the heat and carefully blend the mixture in a jug blender with the proespuma until smooth. Pour the mixture through a sieve to remove any unwanted lumps.

  4. Fill the canister just over halfway with the shallot mix and charge with 2 x cream chargers.

  5. Gently spray the mixture into a bowl and top with lovage oil & crispy onion
