For the Herb Oil:Preheat the oven to 62ºC. Combine the herbs and olive oil in a vacuum pouch, and seal tightly. Cook the mixture in the oven for 3 hours. Strain the mixture, discarding the herbs and reserving the oil.
For the Red Garlic Casein:Fill an immersion circulator and preheat it to 83ºC. Toast the garlic lightly in a pan without oil, and put it in a charcoal smoker with tepid embers for about 2 minutes, until it picks up the aroma of the embers. Combine the garlic and walnut oil in a vacuum pouch, and seal tightly. Put the pouch in the immersion circulator and cook for 3 hours. Pour the garlic-oil mixture into a food processor, and purée for 1 minute. Strain the mixture, season with salt, and reserve. Bring to room temperature before serving.
For the Colt Chunk:Remove the colt from the cooler 2 hours before service to bring the meat to room temperature. Clean the meat of all fat, tendons, and skin. Divide the colt into 4 portions, and season with salt and pepper.
Heat some of the Herb Oil in a frying pan, and sear the colt on both sides.
