  2. Before serving, coat it with melted butter. It is best to simmer and steam the green asparagus separately in salt water.

  2. Whisk the 4 egg yolks with this reduction in a bowl over a water bath and season with lemon juice and Worcester sauce, according to taste.
  3. Then allow the clarified butter to slowly flow into it steadily and keep whisking while doing so. Finally, season with salt and cayenne pepper.

How to Make Focaccia with Sea Salt:

  1. Dissolve the yeast in lukewarm water and prepare the dough by adding flour, salt and herbs. Cover with a kitchen cloth and allow to rise for 1 hour.
  2. Give the dough the desired form and turn it in olive oil.
  3. Then sprinkle coarse sea salt onto the surface and allow the dough to rise for 1 more hour.
  4. Preheat the oven to 220 °C and bake the focaccia for 30 minutes.
  5. Finally, coat the focaccia with butter and place the Black Forest ham on top of it.
