The Chefs' Line recipes from season 1

Vacherin with its layer of creamy ice cream and crisp meringue is the French equivalent to pavlova.
Key to this French classic is perfectly cooked duck breast (or leg) with crispy skin. 
The flavours in this soufflé are simple but classic. I love the nuttiness of the Comté and the natural saltiness of the pancetta.
This is a signature at Montrachet. The twice-baked crab soufflé is served with a prawn and crab bisque sauce and finished with a cheesy gratinated crown.
This cherries in the sauce add a great hit of acid, cutting through the fat of the duck.
