Poach the brains in Vinegar Court-bouillon, remove and cut into thick slices as evenly shaped as possible. Marinate with oil, lemon juice and chopped Fines Herbes for 20 minutes. Dip in batter and deep fry at the last minute taking care that the batter becomes very crisp. Serve in the usual manner.
