Quail Stock:
Saffron Pasta:


In a large saute pan, heat 2 ounces butter over medium heat. Add shallots and thyme. Saute for 1 minute. Add black trumpet mushrooms and saute for 3 to 4 minutes over medium low heat. Add Quail Stock to the mushrooms and simmer for 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

Grill quail breasts over hot coals until golden brown and crispy on both sides and just cooked through. Grill the leeks and set aside. Hold in warm oven until ready to plate.

Bring large pot of water to boil for pasta. Drop pasta into salted boiling water and cook for 3 minutes.

When the pasta is cooked, drain and add to stock. Simmer for 1 minute. Add chives and parsley. Divide pasta into bowls. Pour sauce and mushrooms over pasta. Place quail breasts on pasta. Place grilled leeks on quail and top all with pea tendrils. Serve immediately.

Quail Stock:

Heat olive oil in heavy bottomed saucepan over high heat. Add carcasses and cook until golden brown. Add carrots, onion, celery, thyme, bay leaf and garlic. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes stirring often. Add light chicken stock and simmer for 1 hour. Skim off fat as it rises to the top.

Saffron Pasta:

Bring water to boil. Steep saffron in boiling water for 30 minutes, covered. Combine sifted flour, egg yolks and salt in a mixer with dough hook attachment. Add water/saffron mixture and mix all ingredients for 10 minutes at low speed until dough is silky and elastic. If too dry, add water. If to wet add flour. Once pasta dough has been properly worked, rest for 1 hour in refrigerator. To Roll: Slice off one 2-inch slice of the dough and flatten with your hand and dust with flour, if needed. With the pasta machine open to widest setting, roll pasta through. Decrease the size by 1 1/2 increments each time and continue this process until pasta is very thin. Cut into 8-inch lengths, 1-inch wide. Hold in refrigerator until ready to cook.
