1 egg
0.100l oil
1 clove garlic
1 branch thyme
1 bay leaf
0.010kg fine salt


Pick up and bone the pigeon thighs. Marinate 10 minutes in salt and fry 30 minutes in oil seasoned with garlic clove, thyme and bay leaf. Pick up the pigeon supremes. Cut foie gras into two slices the same size as the supremes and season. Preheat oven to 230°. Unroll flaky pastry dough and embed seeds with a rolling pin. Cut a wide strip, butter one end and roll the pigeon on the buttered part while going along. Cut the excess dough and coat like a turnover. Bake 7 minutes and grill 5 minutes at 190°. Remove the pigeon and let rest 5 minutes on a grill.

Take out and drain the thighs. Cut the turnover in half and put a thigh on each one.
