METHOD To make the poached eggs, fill a large, wide frying pan with water, add the salt and bring to the boil over medium heat. Arrange eight egg rings in the pan and crack an egg into each ring.

Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook for about 1 minute, or until softened but not browned. Add the spinach, cover with a lid and cook for 1–2 minutes, or until wilted. Heat the olive oil in a separate frying pan over medium heat. When hot, add the prosciutto and cook for a few minutes until crispy, adding the tomatoes at the last minute to warm through. Pop the toast onto serving plates, top with the spinach, eggs and the prosciutto mixture, scatter over some shaved parmesan and serve immediately.

mexican pulled-pork shoulder Serves 15 easily

INGREDIENTS 60 ml (2 fl oz/¼ cup) olive oil 3 brown onions, diced 10 garlic cloves, finely chopped 2 green chillies, finely chopped 1 red chilli, finely chopped 3 teaspoons dried oregano 1 tablespoon coriander seeds 1 tablespoon cumin seeds 1 tablespoon fennel seeds 1 teaspoon white peppercorns 1 cinnamon stick 2 whole star anise 10 whole cloves 2.5–3 kg (5 lb 8 oz–6 lb 12 oz) piece of pork shoulder, bone in and skin removed 2 heaped teaspoons smoked hot or sweet paprika 400 ml (14 fl oz) dry white wine 1 litre (35 fl oz/4 cups) good-quality chicken stock 10 ripe tomatoes, roughly chopped 2 teaspoons sea salt a few thyme sprigs 4 x 400 g (14 oz) tins of black beans, drained and rinsed 1 x 400 g (14 oz) tin of kidney beans, drained and rinsed (optional) 2 cups coriander (cilantro) leaves and stems, chopped 1 cup flat-leaf (Italian) parsley leaves, chopped


Makes 8

ingredients 4 egg whites 220 g (7¾ oz/1 cup) caster (superfine) sugar 1 teaspoon white vinegar 1 teaspoon cornflour (cornstarch) 2 teaspoons rose syrup (see Note) 1 tablespoon hot water ¼ teaspoon natural vanilla extract 200 ml (7 fl oz) thickened (whipping) cream, whipped, to serve fresh raspberries, to serve

Preheat the oven to 170°C (325°F/Gas 3) and arrange an oven rack on the middle shelf.

icing (confectioners’) sugar (optional), to serve

Heat the olive oil in a large heavy-based flameproof casserole dish over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook for 5–6 minutes, or until softened.


Add all the chillies, the dried oregano and spices (except the paprika) and cook, stirring, for 1–2 minutes to release the flavours.

Preheat the oven to 120°C (235°F/Gas ½) and arrange an oven rack on the middle shelf. Line a large baking tray with baking paper.

Add the pork and paprika, turn to coat in the flavours, and cook for a few minutes on each side. Pour in the wine and chicken stock, then add the tomato, salt and thyme, and cover with a tight-fitting lid.

Whisk the egg whites, sugar, vinegar, cornflour, rose syrup, hot water and vanilla extract together using an electric mixer on high speed for 10 minutes, or until the mixture is stiff and glossy.

Roast in the oven for 3½ hours, or until the pork pulls off the bone easily.

Spoon onto the prepared tray to make eight meringue nests, about 6–8 cm (2½–3¼ inches) in diameter.

Remove the pork from the dish and pull the meat off the bone using two forks (discard the bone). Return the pulled pork to the sauce and add all of the beans. Cook over medium heat for 20 minutes to heat the beans through and allow the flavours to mingle. Stir through the coriander and parsley at the end and taste for seasoning before serving (this is beautiful with a dollop of sour cream and some diced avocado on top).

raspberry & rose meringues

Bake for 40 minutes, then turn the oven off and allow the meringues to cool in the oven. They should be crunchy on the outside and like marshmallow on the inside. To serve, top the meringues with the whipped cream and raspberries, and dust with a little icing sugar, if you like. You can always start the diet tomorrow! Note Rose syrup is available from continental delicatessens.
