Make a poolish as customary, add eggs, soft butter and salt, knead well and let the sough rise once. Knead on the floured work surface and place in a loaf pan, cover with a kitchen towel and let rise. Bake for 40 minutes 200 °C. Immediately tip our after baking and let it cool on a cooling rack. Cut the brioche lengthwise into thin slices on a gravity slicer as and when required.

Mince and strain the basil with the water. Mix with the Celluzoon and season well. Cool down to 4° C and brush on brioche slices as and when required.

Seal the beef tenderloin and poach in the sous vide water bath of fusionchef at 57° C for 50 minutes, remove from bag and sear from all sides. Remove dripping with a kitchen towel and quickly wrap in prepared bread slices. Sear on all sides in little olive oil until the brioche is crisp.

Reduce the shallots together with the herbs and white wine to a minimum, strain and mix with the beef stock. Whisk the mixture together with the egg yolks in a mixer bowl set over simmering water, season well and stir in the Emulzoon with a hand blender. Melt the butter and emulsify the olive oil with the egg mixture. Add a little lemon juice. Pour into Isi-dispenser and warm at 60° C in a sous vide water bath of fusionchef. Spray into a dish as and when required.

Peel the sunchoke and cut into dice of 5x5 mm, shortly blanch in salt water, glaze in butter and season well. Then fold in the salad.

Arrange the vegetables on the plate. Place tenderloin on top; pour the jus around the meat. Garnish with sprouts. Decant the egg sauce and serve.
