180ml cream
10gm salt
Ground White Pepper as needed

220gm carrots, diced and fully cooked
14gm powdered gelatin
14gm minced herbs
pinch nutmeg
1gm ground cardamon, grounded
Salt and pepper as needed

Blend the chicken, egg white, cream salt and pepper in a food processor until smooth. Test the mixture by poaching a small amount adjust seasoning if necessary. Toss the vegetables into bowl with powdered gelatin, herbs, nutmeg, and cardamon. Season with salt and pepper. fold vegetables into the processed meat, working over an ice bath.
Oil a terrine mold and line with plastic wrap, leaving an overhang of at least 10cm on all sides. Pack the mixture into the lined mold, making sure to remove any air pockets. fold the plastic wrap liner over the mixture to completely encase the terrine.
Poach the terrine in a 77C hot water bath in a 149C hot oven until an internal temperature of 74C, 60-70 minutes. Refrigerate the terrine weighed with a press plate, for at least 12 hours.

Lightly oil a terrine dish (approx 8 by 4) then line with a piece of cling film.Pour the mixture into the dish then gently tap down on a solid surface to remove any air pockets
Place into the fridge to set

To Serve

Gently invert the terrine on to a chopping board,carefully remove the cling film then cut a slice or two with a warm knife and arrange onto the centre of your plate.
To accompany the terrine use a tomato vinaigrette ,marbled into a reduction of balsamic vinegar and a good olive oil, garnished with basil leaves and chopped chives.
Tomato Vinaigrette:

Halve the tomatoes, remove the seeds and chop roughly, then puree finely, force through a sieve into a bowl.
Season with salt, pepper and sugar, add vinegar then whisk in the olive oil and add the herbs
