Eggs poached in their shells and served with chorizo and a pea emulsion.
For the emulson:
Peel and finely dice the shallot.
Heat a saucepan and melt the butter. Add the herbs and the shallot. Cook until the shallot is soft and then add the peas. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes and then add the milk and the cream. Cook for 10 minutes. Transfer to a food processor and blend until smooth. Season with salt and pepper and pass through a sieve. Chill in the fridge and then transfer to a syphon and charge with gas.
Bring a pan of water to the boil. Cut the chorizo into small dice.
Use an 'egg-clacker' to remove the top of the egg. Tip the egg out its shell and then add a little chorizo to the shell. Return the yolk and a little of the white to the shell. Carefully place the egg shell in the simmering water and cook for 3 and a half minutes.
Season with salt and pepper just before removing the egg from the pan.
Top the egg with the pea emulsion and serve immediately.
