INTRODUCTION

When I began the journey of publishing Chef Magazine seven years ago, I had no idea of the journey I would be taken on. The only constant in our ever changing lives is that we need to eat – we eat with friends, eating brings families together, we celebrate by enjoying great tasty food, we agree world summits during a banquet – I have travelled to many countries around the world and, whether poor or wealthy, found coming together over a meal to be the only constant. I have watched Michel Roux create a banquet in Miami at the famous Versace mansion, I have travelled with Simon Hulston on a 747 whilst he prepared the menu he created for the olympics, witnessed a woman in Barbados catch fish with her bare hands and drink fresh milk from a coconut shell. I travelled with Raymond Blanc to the home of his parents and watched his amazing mother cook l’escargot – the best I have ever tasted. I have experienced the street markets in Bangkok, Paris, London, Brazil, South Africa, Beijing, New York and elsewhere, and marvelled at how, the same way throughout the world, we all smell the great ingredients we hope to buy, how I can witness the creative thought process of the person buying the river prawn in Bangkok or the amazing fruit in Rungis as they plan their next best dish around those ingredients. The greatest food, whoever and wherever you are, is cooked with love and creative flair, and both the home cook and the professional chef always hope to bring enjoyment to, and evoke all of the senses of, the diner, when preparing one of the essentials in life – food. Throughout its existence, Chef Magazine has featured chefs from all over the world – those at the top of their game, and those up and coming chefs who are striving for recognition.I have been very fortunate to eat some of their amazing food that maximises the flavours and textures of ingredients, sourced both locally and from afar, and I marvel at the dedication of these chefs. When you see the relief and happiness in the eyes of the creator of a dish – when diners say ‘amazing food’, ‘really tasty’ – you realise just how much the best chefs delight in exceeding their diners’ expectations. This book has been published to allow us to re-visit the eclectic mix of exciting recipes from some of the many wonderful chefs featured in the magazine to date – so please enjoy it, try cooking some of the amazing recipes and, above all, remember the pleasure you can bring, as a chef, to the people who you are creating such wonderful food for.

Galton Blackiston’s cockle chowder with samphire and apple jelly

If you buy cockles in their shells they need to be thoroughly cleaned in plenty of cold running water and then preferably left overnight in the fridge in a bowl of cold lightly salted water with some plain flour sprinkled over the top. Ingesting the flour will encourage them to spit out sand and dirt. Wash the cockles again the following morning in more cold running water.

INGREDIENTS

METHOD

CHOWDER 1 kg (2 lb 4 oz) cockles in shells 2 tbsp olive oil 2 large banana shallots, peeled and thinly sliced 2 cloves garlic, peeled and finely chopped 175 ml (6 fl oz) dry white wine 275 ml (½ pt) whipping cream 25g (1 oz) unsalted butter 2 red chilies, deseeded and finely chopped 1 lobe of fresh ginger, peeled and grated, a good tsp. 4 tbsp. flat leaf parsley, finely chopped Freshly ground black pepper

WHINHILL APPLE JELLY 1. Place the gelatine leaves into a tray of water to soften. 2. Heat 100ml of the apple juice in a saucepan over a medium heat, add the sugar and allow to dissolve. 3. Remove the softened gelatine from the water, squeezing out any excess water with your hands as you do so and stir into the warm apple juice to dissolve thoroughly. 4. Remove from the heat, add the remaining apple juice and stir in the lemon juice. 5. Allow to cool a little and then place in a suitable container in the fridge to set.

SAMPHIRE 450g (1lb) fresh samphire, carefully picked over and thoroughly rinsed 1 tbsp sugar 50g (2oz) unsalted butter Freshly ground black pepper WHINHILL APPLE JELLY 4 large or 8 small gelatine leaves 250ml Whinhill apple juice 1 tbsp sugar Juice ½ lemon

CHOWDER 1. Drain the cockles in a colander and leave under running cold water for a few minutes to get rid of the flour. 2. Heat a large pan over a medium heat, add the oil then the shallots and garlic and sweat until just starting to colour. 3. Turn up the heat and when the pan is really hot shoot the cockles in and give the pan a good shake. 4. Add the white wine, put a lid on the saucepan and cook on a high heat until the cockles open. 5. Take off the heat, allow to cool a little, then take the cockles from the shells (which you discard) place into a bowl and set aside. It is important that you discard any cockles that have not opened, do not risk any! Strain the cooking liquor through a muslin cloth into a bowl and reserve.

Ceviche of tuna and sea scallop with shaved fennel salad

My cuisine is very much modern French but at all times seasonal, using tastes and textures from elsewhere to enrich my French traditions. This light summer dish is a perfect example – the tuna is from the Mediterranean.

INGREDIENTS 8 hand dived scallops medium, thinly sliced 100g tuna, marinated (see below), cut into 1mm thin strips 4 pinches salt 4 pinches cayenne pepper 15ml Seville orange, juice 20ml olive oil, extra virgin 4g banana shallot, finely diced, washed and drained 2g chives, chopped 8g caviar Ocietra 100g fennel salad (see below) 2g shiso cress, 6 leaves each 4g micro herb TUNA MARINADE 100g tuna loin trimmed 4.5g grey salt 3g Seville orange zest, grated 2g lemon zest, grated 2g basil stalks, chopped 2g black peppercorns, crushed

METHOD FENNEL SALAD 100g fennel, finely sliced 4 pinches sea salt 5ml Seville orange juice 15ml olive oil, extra virgin 2g lime zest, blanched 3 times in boiling water and chopped fine 8g ginger, sliced fine and blanched 3 times in boiling water 0.5g cayenne pepper 5g fennel seeds, soaked over night and toasted in a dry pan 20g rocket leaves

TUNA MARINADE 1. On a large piece of clingfilm (big enough to wrap around the tuna twice) place the piece of tuna, mix together the rest of the ingredients and evenly sprinkle on both sides of the fish. Tightly wrap in the clingfilm and leave to marinade in the fridge for 1 hour. 2. Wash off the marinade, pat dry and store in the freezer tightly clingfilmed. FENNEL SALAD 1. In a large bowl mix all the ingredients together except for the rocket. Taste, correct the seasoning and put to one side until needed. 2. This should only be done up to 10 minutes before you are ready to serve, and mix in the rocket at the last minute to prevent it from wilting. CEVICHE 1. On a large square plate, arrange the sliced scallops into three lines running from the top to the bottom. In between the scallop rows place the sliced tuna. 2. Season the scallops only with the salt and pepper. 3. On top of each row of scallops place a thin line of shallot, chives and three small amounts of caviar evenly spaced. 4. Finish with a small amount of fennel salad in the middle and garnish with the Shiso and micro herbs.

Heat a couple of tablespoons of olive oil in a deep heavy based pot, add the whole piece of lamb and brown all over. Dust with seasoned flour and continue to brown for a further few minutes to gain that lovely rich brown colour and flavour. Removed the lamb from the pot and wipe over, add some fresh oil and brown off the mirepoix. Keep turning to gain an even colour. Once golden, add the freshly chopped tomatoes, cinnamon, peppercorns and bayleaf. Pour in the white wine and Manuka honey and stir thoroughly, bring to the boil and reduce to a glaze. Place the neck of lamb back into the middle of the pan with the vegetables around. Pour in the veal stock, enough to cover the neck of lamb, and bring to the boil. Cover and place in the oven for 3-4 hours, until the lamb is tender enough to fall away from the bone. Take out of the oven and leave to cool for an hour. Gently take the neck of lamb out of the cooking liquor and place on a clean oven tray. Strain the liquor and return to the boil and reduce. Take a couple of ladles of sauce and ladle over the neck of lamb. Return the tray to the oven and, for 10 minutes, keep ladling over the sauce to achieve a beautiful glaze over the surface of the meat. Be careful not to burn the meat. Once the glaze is achieved, take out of the oven and leave to rest for at least 30 minutes.

INGREDIENTS

METHOD

LANGOUSTINES 12 langoustines large 50ml olive oil Soy glaze and reduction 250ml Ketchup Manis 6g lemon grass 6g peeled ginger 1.5g garlic 1 red chilli

LANGOUSTINES 1. Set up a deep pan of boiling water and a bowl of iced water ready to cook your langoustines. 2. Prepare the langoustines by tearing the tails from the heads and removing the entrails by twisting the bottom part of the tail. 3. Plunge the tails into boiling water for 30 seconds and then into ice water to cool down quickly. 4. Peel the shells carefully away from the tails but leave the end part for presentation. 5. Set aside in the fridge on kitchen paper ready to cook later.

CAULIFLOWER PURÉE 250g cauliflower (finely chopped) 65g whipping cream 25g butter White pepper 1.25g salt LANGOUSTINE THAI FOAM Langoustine stock 15g lemon grass 10g ginger 2g chilli 125g milk 7g stock syrup Lemon to taste Salt and pepper GARNISH Bacon 6 baby onions 30g butter 100g cauliflower 5g olive oil salt and pepper 10g sesame seeds

SOY GLAZE AND REDUCTION 1. Chop the lemon grass, peeled ginger, red chilli and garlic into fine pieces. Mix the Ketchup Manis and all the finely chopped ingredients together and place into a small pan. 2. Place the pan on a low heat and warm it to around 50°C and then set aside to infuse for one hour. 3. Pass through a fine sieve and store in the fridge in a plastic squeezy bottle ready to use. This can be made well in advance and stored in the fridge before using it. CAULIFLOWER PURÉE 1. Place the finely chopped cauliflower into a steamer and cook on a high heat until soft in texture. Depending on how fine you cut the cauliflower this should be a quick process to retain flavour and nutritional value. 2. Place the cooked cauliflower into the liquidiser with the cream, butter and seasoning and blend until very smooth.

Pass through a fine sieve and cool it down quickly over a bowl of ice before storing in the fridge until needed.

2.

LANGOUSTINE THAI FOAM 1. Set up the food processor and blend the lemon grass, ginger and chilli to form a Thai paste and then divide this into two equal parts. 2. Place the langoustine stock into a pan with half the Thai paste and reduce over a moderate heat by 50% Strain the reduced stock through a fine sieve into a smaller pan and add the second part of the paste and reduce by a further 50%. 3. You should now have around 300ml of stock remaining. Strain through a fine sieve once again then add the milk, stock syrup, seasoning and lemon to taste, set aside to cool and then store in the fridge ready to use later.

4.

3.

GARNISH 1. Peel and cut the baby onions into halves and cook gently in foaming butter with salt and pepper until golden brown and soft in texture. 2. Slice the cauliflower very thinly with a mandolin or a very sharp knife and season with a little salt, pepper and olive oil. 3. Toast the sesame seeds under the grill until a light golden brown in colour. TO SERVE 1. Caramelise the bacon under the grill until golden brown. Brush with the soy glaze until the bacon becomes sticky and a glaze is formed.

Take the preheated hot frying pan fry the langoustines in the olive oil until golden brown on one side and then flip the tails over to the other side. Pull the pan off the heat and allow the residual heat from the pan to cook the tails through. Note this whole cooking process should be done quickly to prevent the langoustines over cooking.

Veal cutlets with broad beans and girolle mushrooms

This is one of my favourite dishes. Veal isn’t popular in Britain but few are aware that British veal is produced to the highest standards in Europe, with the animal’s welfare a high priority. The result is the delicious rosé veal which has a pink, not white, flesh.

INGREDIENTS

METHOD

2 large rosé veal cutlets 4 kg large, waxy potatoes, such as Cara, Charlotte or Nicola 4 kg broad beans in their shells 1 kg Scottish girolles Vegetable oil 50g butter 4 large sprigs of thyme 100 ml white Port 300 ml veal stock 100 ml double cream Small bunch chervil, chopped Salt and pepper

The veal cutlets should be well trimmed to remove any sinew and tied so that they maintain their shape during cooking. Season the meat. Use a small knife to shape the potatoes into cocottes (resembling small eggs) and keep them in cold water. Pod and blanch the broad beans in plenty of boiling salted water for about 90 seconds. Plunge them immediately into iced water to stop them cooking further. Remove the shells and set aside. Clean the mushrooms by removing any soil and scraping down the base with a small knife to expose the clean stem. Heat the large casserole pan, add a little oil and half the butter. Add the veal and cook to caramelise on all sides until golden brown. Remove the meat and the potatoes to the same pan. Caramelise again until golden brown, then add the mushrooms and thyme. Cook for a further minute. Remove the potatoes and the mushrooms from the pan and drain away the butter. Return the veal to the pan, and then add the potatoes, thyme and mushrooms. Add the Port and reduce by half.

Add the veal stock, bring to the boil then cover the casserole and cook in a preheated oven at 170°C/325°F/Gas 3 for five minutes. Remove from the oven and allow the meat to rest inside the casserole for 10 minutes. Remove the meat and cut it into four cutlets. Meanwhile, add the cream to the pan and reduce by half. Add the blanched broad beans and a handful of chopped chervil and the remaining butter. Bring back to the boil. Serve the meat sliced and simply pile the garnish next to it, pouring the sauce over the meat.

Black cod with sweet miso

The black cod (sable fish) with miso has become one of the most famous dishes at all the Nobu restaurants around the world. Some of our customers like to squeeze some fresh lemon over the top to balance the sweetness out but this is down to your own personal taste.

INGREDIENTS

METHOD

200g sable fish fillet with the skin intact

DEN MISO 1. Bring the sake and mirin to the boil in a thick bottomed, non-reactive saucepan for 2-3 minutes to allow the alcohol to evaporate. Add the sugar and allow to dissolve, slowly mixing in the miso paste a little at a time using a wooden spoon. 2. Continue to cook on a medium heat stirring constantly so as not to let the mixture burn in the pan for a further 10-15 minutes. Strain the mixture through a sieve to remove any lumps, allow to cool and then refrigerate.

DEN MISO 10g sake 100g miring 150g caster sugar 300g white miso paste GARGANELLI 250g 00 pasta flour 3 egg yolks 2 whole eggs Pinch of sea salt 10ml olive oil TO SERVE Sliced lemon Galangal stem

MARINATING AND COOKING 1. Place the sable fish in a non reactive container and pour over a little of the den miso and marinate for 1-2 days in the refrigerator. 2. Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/gas mark 6 and place the fish on to a nonstick baking sheet and cook in the oven for 10-12 minutes until cooked through and golden on the outside. 3. You can cook the sable fish under a grill or salamander with the same results but care must be taken that it does not burn before it is cooked through to the centre. TO SERVE Place on to a serving dish and dress the plate with a little extra den miso and serve with some sliced lemon and galangal stem.

PICKLED ONIONS 1. Place all the ingredients apart from the onions into a medium saucepan and bring to the boil to make the pickling juices. 2. Remove from the heat. Cool slightly. 3. Pack into a kilner jar, and pour the pickling juices over the onion. 4. Seal the jars and allow to cool. Place in a cool place for a week. 5. When needed cut into rings or wedges. Place in a bowl until needed. ONION BROTH 1. Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan, add the onions, stir well and cover with a lid. 2. Cook for approximately 5 minutes stirring occasionally till the onions have collapsed and become translucent. Now remove the lid and cook until the onions are a lovely deep golden brown colour, stirring well. 3. Add the brown chicken stock. Bring to the boil, reduce heat and simmer for 50 minutes, skimming as necessary. Carefully strain through muslin. 4. Place into another pan and add the 500g of dashi, bring to the boil and slowly simmer for 5-10 minutes for the flavours to develop. Remove from the heat and cool. The stock should be extremely well flavoured by now, if it is a bit watery, place back on the heat to slowly reduce, but not boil. If it is too reduced add a little water. 5. When needed just simply reheat without boiling. LEEK PURÉE 1. Bring a small saucepan of water to the boil. Clean and finely slice the leek, and blanch in the water for 10 seconds. Drain through a sieve and place in a blender. 2. Add the butter and blend until a smooth purée is obtained.

3.

Add the xanthan gum and whizz again season. Pass through a fine sieve and place in a squeezy bottle keeping warm.

LEEK 1. Remove the tops of the leeks leaving mainly white. Bring a pan of salted water up to the boil. 2. Cook the leeks until tender, refresh in cold water and drain well. 3. Heat a griddle pan until very hot, brush the leeks with oil and place on the griddle pan. 4. You need the leeks to get a good charring on one side but do not let burn. 5. Place on a tray and turn around in the butter, season. SCALLOPS 1. Remove the orange roe from each scallop – they can be used for another dish – we are using the pure white part of the scallop. Remove grit with a damp cloth if there is any. 2. Cut each scallop in ½ to give you 1218 discs. Place on a damp cloth, on a tray, cover and place in the fridge. 3. Heat a large heavy bottomed frying pan. When you feel the heat coming off it place half the olive oil in and then half the scallops. Cook for 30 seconds, add half the butter. Cook for a further 30-60 seconds. 4. Turn and cook for about 1 minute. Remove to a warm plate, wipe pan and repeat with the other scallops. When all cooked, season. TO SERVE 1. Place the scallops to one side of the plate overlapping. Sprinkle with onion seeds and a little Maldon salt. 2. On the other side of the plate place a charred leek, then place the slices of jowel

in three little folds along the leek. Slice some of the pickled onions and dress them on the leek. Scatter with wild garlic buds and dress with the wood sorrel. Dot some of the leek purée and serve the onion stock to one side.

HOME CURED PORK JOWEL PER 2 PORK JOWELS (STAND ALONE RECIPE) 1. Check the jowl to see if there is any hair on the skin, if there is use a blow torch to singe them and then remove with a dry cloth.

2. 3.

5. 6.

Turn the meat over and remove any glands that may be there. Crush the peppercorns in a pestle and mortar, add the junipers and crush then add the remaining ingredients and mix well. Rub this mixture over the jowls and massage it into them for 3 minutes each side. Place in a vacuum bag and seal, failing that use a zip freezer bag. Place in the fridge for between 6-8 days, the flesh should now be firm to the touch.

7.

8.

Remove from the bag and dry well. Thread a little string through the meat, using a trussing needle, form a tied loop and hang in a cool dry place (45-50°F) for approximately 2-3 weeks. It should get harder as the time progresses. When ready, wrap in silicon paper and place in a container in the fridge until needed.When needed slice as fine as you wish on a meat slice, 3-4 slices per person. This makes great bacon by the way.

Pressed terrine of Gloucester Old Spot pig cheeks, smoked ham hock and leek This is one of my favourite starters: a terrine of pig’s cheeks, cooked slowly in duck fat, and poached smoked ham hock, served with home-cured pork jowl. The terrine has just a little jus to help it set when pressed and to keep it moist. This porcine lover’s delight is served with a pear purée, which helps cut the richness of the terrine, raw pear for texture and honeyed mustard seeds for a touch of heat. It is worth the wait for the home-cured jowl (which makes great bacon) and the Gloucester Old Spot is a great rare breed for this recipe.

INGREDIENTS

METHOD

HAM HOCK 350g smoked ham hock 200g roughly chopped carrots 100g each roughly chopped onion, leek and celery 2 garlic cloves, crushed 2 bay leaves Sprig thyme 10 white peppercorns

HAM HOCK 1. Soak the smoked ham hock overnight in cold water to remove excess salt. 2. The next day, place it in a large saucepan with the vegetables and aromatics. Cover with water and bring to the boil, then skim and simmer for 3 ½–4 hours, until the meat is coming easily away from the bone. 3. Lift out the hock (strain the stock and keep for a soup or broth). Remove the meat from the bones, discarding the skin and picking off any bits of gristle and fat. Place in a container.

TERRINE 1 medium celeriac, about 700–800g 100g unsalted butter 24 pig cheeks, trimmed Salt and aromatics as for confit of duck leg 750g duck fat 25 thin baby leeks 400g brown chicken stock reduced to 100g

CELERIAC 1. Peel the celeriac and slice as finely as possible. Line a baking tray, about 52 x 32cm, with baking parchment. Melt the butter in a small saucepan, then brush the baking parchment with a little of it. 2. Season, then cover with overlapping slices of celeriac to form a rectangular sheet about 25 x 36cm in size. Brush with more butter and season. 3. Place in an oven preheated to 180°C/Gas Mark 4 and cook for 5 minutes. 4. Turn the celeriac sheet over (this manoeuvre will need another baking tray lined with buttered parchment) and cook for a further 5 minutes. 5. Remove from the oven and place a sheet of baking parchment on top of the celeriac. Set a baking tray of the same size on top and add a heavy weight. Cool, then place in the fridge to chill. When cold, remove from the trays and remove the paper. Cut into two equal rectangles, about 36 x 12cm, for the top and bottom of the terrine.

PIG’S CHEEKS 1. Salt the pig cheeks with the salt and aromatics. Pack tightly in a bag or container and leave for 6 hours only. 2. Remove the salt and herbs by quickly rinsing under cold water and dry well. 3. In a heavy-based ovenproof pot or a high sided baking tray large enough to fit the cheeks, melt the duck fat over a low heat. Add the cheeks, which should be completely covered with fat. Cover with foil, then place in an oven preheated to 150°C/ Gas Mark 2 and simmer gently for 2-2½ hours, until tender. To check, prick with a fork: there should be no resistance. Keep warm in the fat until needed. LEEKS 1. Remove any damaged outer leaves from the leeks and trim the green end, then carefully trim the bottom, leaving the smallest amount of root intact. 2. Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil, add the leeks and cook for 3–4 minutes, until tender. Place on a tray and  squeeze the excess water out of them. Keep warm. TERRINE 1. The ham hock, pig’s cheeks and reduced stock should be warm, so reheat if necessary. 2. Place a frame, about 36 x 12 x 4cm, on a tray and line with 2 layers of cling film, overlapping the sides of the frame. 3. Carefully place one of the celeriac rectangles on the bottom of the frame and drizzle over a little of the reduced chicken stock.

6.

Neatly arrange the pig cheeks next to each other, 3 across and 8 along, in a layer on the celeriac. Press down well with a board that fits inside the frame. Season and drizzle with chicken stock, then add the leeks, arranged top to tail along the length of the terrine. Press down well again. Drizzle with chicken stock and season. Evenly place a layer of smoked ham hock

7. 8.

all over the leeks. Drizzle with the last bit of stock and season. Carefully lay the other rectangle of celeriac on top and press down well with the board. Bring the cling film up and over the terrine, and seal. Prick lightly with a fork and place the board on top. Place 2 heavy weights on the board and leave in the fridge overnight to set.

9.

About 40 minutes before serving, take the terrine from the fridge, to take the chill off it, and remove it from the frame. Remember to remove the cling film before serving!

Galloway beef fillet, tail, spiced carrot, onion crumb

METHOD OXTAIL 1. Marinade the oxtail pieces in the red wine for 12 hours, then drain well, reserving the wine. 2. Preheat the oven to 160°C. 3. Heat a little oil in a pan and cook the oxtail until well browned all over, remove from the pan then caramelise the onions and garlic in the same pan until well browned. 4. Add the oxtail back to the pan, then pour in the wine and reduce by half. 5. Add the beef stock, thyme and a lid then transfer to the oven and braise for 3-4 hours or until the meat falls off the bone. 6. Allow to cool in the liquid, and then drain off. Carefully remove all bone and sinew, leaving only the soft meat. Pick through this meat to break it down into fine pieces. 7. Take roughly a third of the cooking liquid and reduce down to thick syrup, then add enough of this into the picked meat to moisten it. Reserve the rest of the cooking liquid. 8. Wrap roughly 30g per person of this oxtail mixture in enough crepinette (or pig’s caul) to make a neat ‘faggot’ parcel, then bake in the oven on a flat tray for 10 minutes at 160°C, this is to ‘set’ the faggots. Place into the reserved cooking liquid and simmer for 10 minutes. 9. Note: this cooking liquid also becomes the sauce for the dish, so reduce some of it until a sauce like consistency is reached. CARROT PURÉE 1. Peel, then thinly slice, the carrots. Melt the butter in a thick bottomed pan big enough to easily take all of

the carrots, with a tight fitting lid. Add the sliced carrots, star anise, cumin and a pinch of salt to the pan. Cook this together gently, under the lid, so that the carrot generates its own steam to cook in. Be patient and continue to cook on a low heat, stirring occasionally, until the carrot is very soft and begins to break up into a mush. Remove the star anise and purée until very smooth, then pass through a fine sieve and put aside until needed.

CARROT BUTTONS 1. Slice 2 of the large carrots into 1 cm thick slices, then cut out barrels with a small round cutter, allowing 3-5 per person. 2. Juice the other 2 carrots and place into a pan with the carrot rounds, 50g of butter and salt to taste, then simmer gently until cooked. Remove the carrots and reserve. 3. Turn up the heat and reduce the cooking liquid to a glaze to roll the carrots in before serving. PICKLED MUSHROOMS 1. Bring the water, vinegar and sugar to a simmer. Prepare the mushrooms by trimming the stalks and removing any traces of soil, wash quickly in clean water and drain well. 2. Add the mushrooms to the simmering liquid, then remove the pan from the heat and allow to cool together, leave in the liquid until needed. ONION CRUMB 1. Squeeze the finely chopped onion in a cloth, to remove as much liquid as possible.

Lay out the onion on silicone paper and dry in a low oven, 100°C, until very dry – almost powder like. Heat the oil in a pan until hot, then add in the butter and allow to foam and start to turn nut brown. At this point add in the bread crumbs and cook, stirring continuously, until golden brown. Add the dried onion and cook for a further few seconds, until both are golden brown. Remove from pan and drain well on kitchen paper, season with salt to taste.

BEEF FILLET 1. Preheat the oven to 160°C. 2. Season the beef fillet with plenty of salt and pepper. 3. Heat a little oil in a pan until very hot, add the beef and sear really well all over, until it is golden brown. 4. Add in a few knobs of butter and allow to caramelise. Roll the fillet in this before transferring to an oven. Cook until rare, approximately 15 minutes, depending on how thick the fillet is. TO SERVE 1. Heat the purée and the carrot buttons, toss the mushrooms in a little butter in a hot pan and season with salt. 2. Remove the hot faggots from the cooking liquid and roll in the crispy onion crumb until coated. 3. Allow the beef fillet to ‘rest’ for 10 minutes before carving into 4 equal portions, then arrange the ingredients on the plates as in the picture.

Grouse on toast with girolles

If you’re a grouse lover, this little starter is a good way to make the deliciously rich meat go that bit further. You can, of course, use wild ducks like teal, widgeon or snipe or partridge or pheasant.

On a clean chopping board, using a knife at 90°C to the skin, scrape as much fat from the inside of the skin as you can, taking care not to rip or cut the skin, lay each skin carefully onto silicone paper so they do not overlap. Liberally salt the skins on the inside of each one with fine sea salt grains, layer up the papers to save a little refrigeration space and leave overnight to render any excess moisture. The following day, remove the skins and carefully remove the salted moisture from the skins, discard the paper, and dry the skin well. Using a Silpat baking mat, lay the skin out. Place another Silpat baking mat on top, and weigh it down with a further baking tray and press. Bake in a 160°C pre-heated oven until crisp, this usually takes approximately 15-20 minutes, remove from the oven and allow time for cooling. Cut to size and when completely cool, store in an airtight container. Mix the blanched pistachio nuts, carefully cleaned morel mushrooms and diced cooked pancetta gently, with the prepared chicken Mousseline. Season well. Take the chicken suprêmes and butterfly cut them. Flatten out slightly with a meat bat and fill with the enriched chicken mousseline.

Sweat half of the finely chopped shallots in some sunflower oil; add the peeled and finely diced carrots. Top up with milk, season and cover, cooking until the carrots are soft. Drain off the excess milk from the carrots, place into a food blender and reduce the carrots to a fine purée. Gradually incorporate the foie gras fat. Season to taste. Soften the remainder of the chopped shallots and morel mushroom trimmings in a pan with a little sunflower oil over heat without colour. Deglaze with the Madeira and, reduce to a syrupy consistency. Add the remaining chicken stock and reduce this liquid until the required volume and consistency of a sauce has been obtained. Pass the sauce through muslin cloth and check the seasoning before shaking into the sauce a little unsalted butter to finish it. Bring the pickling liquid to the boil in a saucepan and add the sliced red onions. Remove from the heat and let the onions cool down in the liquid.

Beetroot sponge, spinach and onion purée, buttermilk labne, dill and cucumber granita, buchu The much underrated beetroot is one of my favourite ingredients to work with. Its earthiness is lifted by dusting it with buchu power – an incredible indigenous Cape herb.

INGREDIENTS

METHOD

BEETROOT SPONGE ½ gelatine leaf 50ml beetroot juice 1 pinch salt

BEETROOT SPONGE 1. Place the gelatine in a small bowl with ice water and set aside 2. Place the juice and salt in a small saucepan and bring to the boil. Remove from the heat and add the softened gelatine leaf. 3. Place a fine strainer over a medium mixing bowl and strain the beetroot mixture. Take a medium bowl and fill with ice, pour the beetroot mixture into a slightly smaller bowl and place it on to the ice. Whisk the beetroot mixture continuously until it is aerated and cold. The gelatine will have set it. Scoop the mixture into a piping bag and pipe into the moulds. Refrigerate.

BUCHU POWDER Leave the buchu to dry and blend until very fine using a spice grinder.

BEETROOT CRUMBS Preheat the oven to 100°C. Mix the crumbs with the beetroot powder and lightly toast in the oven for 20 minutes. Leave to cool and place in an air-tight container.

TO SERVE 1. Scoop the centre out of the beetroot sponges and fill with some of the purée, then take the two halves and stick them together. Carefully roll in the beetroot crumbs. 2. Pipe 1 tablespoon of buttermilk labne on the plate and drag across with a small spatula. Place the beetroot ball on the plate, scoop some of the granita next to the ball and sprinkle with buchu powder.

Goat’s cheese, black olive and sun-dried tomato bon bons with beetroot sorbet and pickled beetroot

INGREDIENTS

METHOD

PICKLED BEETROOT 250g beetroot 475ml orange juice Vanilla pod Salt 250ml raspberry vinegar 250ml vegetable oil

PICKLED BEETROOT 1. Peel the beetroot, saving the off-cuts, and place into a saucepan along with the orange juice, vanilla and salt – make sure the beetroot is completely covered with the orange juice. Place on a gentle heat and cook for around 1-2 hours, checking every 30 minutes as the beetroot needs to still have a little bit of crunch. 2. Once cooked allow to cool and then remove from the liquid. Using a sharp knife cut the beetroot into even dice and place into a jam jar. 3. Pour over the raspberry vinegar and vegetable oil, add a good pinch of salt, cover and leave for a day or so, turning the jar top to bottom every now and then.

BON BONS 250g bûche de chèvre goat’s cheese 100g sun-dried tomatoes 50g black olives 2 eggs 235ml milk 250g plain flour 250g breadcrumbs BEETROOT SORBET 500ml beetroot purée 50g liquid glucose 100ml stock syrup Squeeze of lemon juice TO SERVE Beetroot purée Chopped walnuts Pesto Balsamic reduction Parmesan tuile Baby cresses

BON BONS 1. Use a peeler to peel off the outside skin of the goat’s cheese and crumble into a bowl – allow to warm up to room temperature. Drain the oil of the sun-dried tomatoes and roughly chop with a knife and add to the goat’s cheese. Stone the black olives, chop and add to the mix. 2. Using your hands mix the goat’s cheese, olives and tomatoes together well and then roll the mix into golf ball-size rounds. Crack the eggs, mix with the milk and whisk together. 3. Place the flour into a tray and spread out the breadcrumbs on a separate tray. Roll the goat’s cheese through the flour, then into the egg wash, then into the breadcrumbs and roll around until completely covered crumbs. Then place back it the fridge to firm up again.

Heat the beetroot purée up but do not boil add the glucose stock syrup and the lemon juice and pass through a fine sieve. 2. Allow to cool completely and then churn in a sorbet machine until set. Store in a container in the freezer. TO SERVE 1. Using a spoon make a couple of drags of the beetroot purée onto each plate. Sprinkle the plate with the chopped walnuts and drop pools of both the pesto and the balsamic reduction all over the plate – you can be as artistic as you want. 2. Place a few pieces of the pickled beetroot around the plate. Place the goat’s cheese bon bons into a deep fat fryer and fry them until they are golden brown – this should take 1-2 minutes – then place onto a cloth to remove any excess oil. 3. Arrange the goat’s cheese bon bons on the plates. Using a warm spoon make a quenelle of sorbet in the centre of each plate and stick a piece of parmesan tuile into each sorbet. Garnish with the baby cresses and serve straightaway.

Sirloin of Devil’s Gulch ranch rabbit wrapped in Hobbs’ applewood smoked bacon with summer succotash and corn ‘pudding’ Roast rabbit loin wrapped in bacon and served with a little rack of rabbit is a classic preparation, but our version shows sous vide’s power. The boneless loin is wrapped in bacon and plastic wrap and compressed into the torchon shape before it is vacuum- packed and cooked sous vide, then sliced and reheated at service. Sous vide ensures that every rabbit loin is cooked exactly the same. We use rabbit from Mark Pasternack’s Devil’s Gulch Ranch in northern California and serve with a corn succotash and a corn “pudding” made from thickened corn juices. Corn is extraordinary cooked sous vide; no flavor is lost to the cooking medium.

INGREDIENTS RABBIT 1 whole rabbit saddle, racks attached Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper 12 thin slices Hobbs’ applewood smoked bacon Canola oil QUICK RABBIT SAUCE 120g canola oil 700g rabbit chopped into 1" pieces 750ml water 750ml chicken stock 125g onions cut into ½" mirepox 90g leeks cut into ½" mirepox 135g carrots cut into ½" mirepox 60g tomatoes cut into ½" mirepox 500ml veal stock

METHOD CORN PUDDING AND SUCCOTASH 60g small lima beans or peeled fava beans, germs removed 60g Hobbs’ Applewood smoked bacon, cut into N-inch dice 60g corn kernels, cold granulated sugar Kosher salt 15g unsalted butter 380g corn juice (from about 8 ears of corn) 60g diced (¼") peeled red bell pepper 60g diced (¼") peeled yellow bell pepper 20 roasted cherry tomatoes canola oil 15g unsalted butter 15g vegetable stock or water

RABBIT 1. Remove the kidneys from the saddle and peel off the outer membrane. Refrigerate. 2. Separate the racks from the saddle, but leave the last rib from each rack attached to the saddle. Using kitchen shears or a sharp heavy knife, split each rack crosswise in half. Refrigerate until cold. 3. Use a sharp boning knife to remove the loins from the saddle, leaving the flank (flap) attached to one of the loins. The other flank can be trimmed away and used for another purpose or discarded. Clean the attached flank of excess fat and trim it to be the same length as the loin. 4. Score the flank in a ¼" crosshatch pattern. Season the loins with salt and pepper. 5. Lay the loins side by side with the trimmed loin lying on the flank. Roll the flank around both loins to form a compact cylinder. Lay the strips of bacon side by side on a piece of parchment paper, overlapping the slices by about ¼". Lay the rabbit cylinder over the bacon, running crosswise to the strips of bacon, and roll up. Trim off any excess bacon. 6. Lay a 20" long piece of food-safe plastic wrap on the work surface with a short side toward you. Lay the wrapped loins across the center and roll up in the plastic to form a compact cylinder. Tie the ends of the plastic, keeping them tight against the loin. 7. Refrigerate until cold, then place in a bag. Vacuum-pack on medium high. 8. Cook the rabbit at 64°C (147.2°F) for 18 minutes (the rabbit will be finished cooking as the bacon is crisped). Place in an ice bath to chill. 9. Refrigerate until 30 minutes before you are ready to complete the dish. 10. To complete: Heat a film of canola oil in a

sauté pan over medium-high heat. Remove the rabbit loins from the plastic and add to the pan, seam side down. Cook, turning to brown the bacon well on all sides, for a total of about 5 minutes; tilt the pan occasionally and baste the rabbit with the accumulated fat. Drain on C-fold towels, then slice the loins. 11. Season the racks with salt and pepper, and wrap the bones in aluminum foil. Heat oil in a sauté pan over high heat. Place the racks meat side down in the pan and brown quickly, lowering the heat if necessary to cook to medium. Add the kidneys to the pan, and cook for 3-4 minutes, turning the kidneys to cook evenly. Drain on C-fold towels. 12. Slice the racks into individual chops. QUICK RABBIT SAUCE, WARMED 1. Heat the canola oil over high heat in a wide heavy pot large enough to hold the bones in one layer. When it just begins to smoke, add the bones and brown them, without, stirring, for about 10 minutes. (They should be well browned before they are moved, or they will give off their juices and begin to steam rather than brown.) Turn the bones and cook for about 10 minutes longer, or until evenly coloured. 2. For the first deglazing: Add 250ml of the water to the pot. You will hear the water sizzling as it hits the hot pot; then, as it reduces, it will become quiet. Stirring with a wooden spoon, scrape up any glazed juices clinging to the bottom of the pot and cook until the liquid have evaporated and the pot is glazed an sizzling again (don’t worry about the oil still in the pot; it will be removed later.) 3. For the second deglazing: deglaze the pot with 250ml of the chicken stock and


K

cook as above. As the stock boils down this time the colour of the bones and liquid will become deeper and the natural gelatin in the stock will glaze the bones. For the third deglazing: Add the onions, leeks and carrots; the water content of the water of the vegetables provides the liquid for this deglazing. cook as above until the moisture has evaporated and the vegetables are lightly caramelised. For the fourth deglazing: Add the tomatoes and cook until the moisture has evaporated. For the fifth deglazing: Add the remaining 500ml chicken stock, veal stock and the remaining 500ml water. Deglaze the pot, then transfer the stock and bones to a taller, narrower pot so that it will be easier to skim. Bring to a simmer (with the pot set partially off the burner to force the impurities to one side) and ladle off the oil as it rises to the top. simmer for 45 minutes, skimming often, until the stock as reduced to the level of the bones. Strain the sauce through a china cap and

the again through a chinois or fine-mesh conical strainer; do not force and of the solids through the strainer or they will cloud your sauce. You should have about 450ml of liquid. Pour the liquid into a small pot, reduce to about 200ml, and strain again. Refrigerate the sauce for up to 3 days, or freeze for longer storage. CORN PUDDING AND SUCCOTASH 1. Blanch the lima or fava beans. Chill in an ice bath. If the beans are larger than ¼", cut them into ¼" brunoise. Sauté the bacon until it is richly browned. Drain on C-fold towels. 2. Place the corn in a bag with a pinch of sugar, a pinch of salt, and the butter; spread the corn out in an even layer. Vacuum-pack on medium-high. 3. Cook at 85°C (185°F) for 1 hour. 4. Meanwhile, heat the corn juice in a saucepan over medium-high heat until it comes to a simmer and the starch in the juice begins to thicken it. 5. Reduce the heat and simmer for about

6.

7 minutes, until thickened. Add salt to taste and cook for another minute. Strain the pudding and keep warm. To complete: Reserve 16 pieces each of the red and yellow peppers, corn, limas or favas, and tomatoes for garnish. Heat a film of oil in a saucepan. Add the remaining red pepper and sauté for about 1 minute, or until the oil begins to take on a bit of color from the peppers. Add the bacon, the remaining yellow peppers, corn, beans, tomatoes, the butter and vegetable stock and heat through. Season with salt.

TO SERVE 1. Spoon some of the corn pudding and rabbit sauce onto each plate. Sprinkle the kidneys with salt and pepper. 2. Arrange the rabbit loin, chops, and kidneys on the plates and scatter the reserved vegetables around them. Serve the succotash on the side.

SALTIMBOCCA DI VITELLO E PARMIGIANA DI MELANZANE E FINFERLI Veal with Parma ham and sage, baked aubergine and girolle

INGREDIENTS

METHOD

SALTIMBOCCA 600g veal loin 4 slices Parma ham 8 sage leaves Flour, as needed Vegetable oil, as needed Marsala wine, as needed 20g cold butter, cubed

PARMAGIANA 1. With a potato peeler, take four strips of skin off the aubergine, so you have one strip of flesh, one of skin, one of flesh and so on. Cut the aubergine in rounds ½ cm wide. Put the aubergines in a colander, sprinkle with salt and leave for a couple of hours, or preferably overnight, so that you draw out as much of the water as possible. 2. Take the aubergines from the colander and pat them dry. Then put a few slices at a time in a very hot pan with vegetable oil, and cook them until they start to get colour on each side. Lay them on paper towels to drain off the excess oil. 3. In a square baking dish, around 20 x 20cm, spread a thin ladleful of tomato sauce, then overlap the aubergine rounds into a layer, add another ladleful of tomato sauce, grated Parmigiano-Reggiano and basil leaves. Repeat with another layer of aubergines and so on, finishing with tomato sauce and lots of ParmigianoReggiano. 4. Cover with foil and bake in the oven at 180°C for 30 minutes. Remove the foil and continue cooking for 10 more minutes.

PARMIGIANA 500g aubergines, around 4 (pale egg-shaped ones) Tomato sauce 300g Parmigiano-Reggiano, finely grated 1 bunch basil leaves GIROLLES Girolle mushrooms, cleaned Butter 1 clove of garlic, chopped finely White wine Parsley, chopped

SALTIMBOCCA 1. While the aubergines are in the oven, clean the veal loin and cut in eight slices of 75g. Hammer each piece very thinly, about 5mm thick. Place a slice of Parma ham on a veal escalope, put two sage leaves on top and cover it with another veal escalope. Repeat with the rest.

3.

Season each saltimbocca and dust with flour, then put it in a very hot pan with little vegetable oil, and cook it through quickly on each side. Take it out and keep warm while you work your sauce in the pan. Pour in the Marsala to the hot pan and let it reduce by half, then beat in the cold butter.

GIROLLES 1. In a sauté pan, melt a knob of butter, add the chopped garlic and cook without allowing it to colour. Add the girolles to the pan, season and sauté for a minute. 2. Add a drizzle of white wine, let the alcohol evaporate and turn the heat down. Add another knob of butter to the pan and cover it. Cook slowly for a couple of minutes and set aside. TO SERVE 1. Cut the parmigiana in squares of 10 x 10cm and if necessary warm it through. 2. Place a square of baked aubergines on a warmed plate, the girolles next to it and the saltimbocca lying on top of the parmigiana. Spoon the sauce on top of the meat.

Dover sole, kale and anchovy This is a pretty simple dish which means the basics are very important: sourcing, storing, cooking, seasoning. Dover sole is a fish that benefits from being aged, therefore buy the fish in very good condition and store carefully (and well drained) for up to seven days to improve flavour and texture. I think it’s a good idea to bake the fish whole; the flesh stays in such beautiful condition, and I’ve never really been a fan of cutting fish into perfect squares, anyway. The skin won’t be crisp, in the way that people are often obsessed with, but the texture and flavour it has will be fantastic. I like the mix of earthy kale, salty anchovies and the firm texture of the sole. It’s a fish that can handle the strong flavours and so, all in all, it ends up being quite a gutsy dish.

INGREDIENTS

METHOD

PURÉE 500g kale leaves 1 tsp Dijon mustard Salt Red wine vinegar, to taste

PURÉE 1. Pick the leaves off the lower parts of the kale branch, blanch until very soft, 5 minutes and refresh in iced water. 2. Blend in a Vita-prep/Thermomix with a teaspoon of Dijon mustard, salt and enough water for it to purée properly. 3. Finish with a good red wine vinegar. Think of this purée as a condiment, and therefore season more highly with the vinegar than you would normally.

SOLE 1.2kg Dover sole (buy as large a fish as you can for what’s necessary) Butter, burnt/browned TO SERVE 2 branches kale per person 40 elderberry capers Sprig lemon thyme 6 anchovies (buy the best/ most expensive: life is too short to bother with bad anchovies)

SOLE 1. Bake the sole on an oven tray at 180°C with a tablespoon of brown butter, salt, capers and sprigs of lemon thyme. 2. Remove when the core reaches 40°C and allow the fish to rest and finish cooking.

Chef Magazine / Issue 32 / November / 2013

342

TO SERVE 1. Steam the tops of the kale branch for 2 minutes, until it’s softened but not cooked down fully. 2. Take the fish from the bone in chunks and split amongst the plates. 3. Cover each piece of fish with chopped anchovy, elderberry, capers and lemon thyme leaves. 4. Dress the steamed kale with the juices collected in the fish pan, season further if necessary and add to the plate. 5. Add a spoon of the warmed kale purée. Add any remaining cooking juices from the pan.

JUGGED HARE 1. Skin and clean the hare taking care to collect the blood if you intend to use it. 2. Remove the saddle and set aside for the dish below. 3. Cut the remaining hare into pieces by naturally jointing the carcase. 4. Place the pieces in a bowl and sprinkle with brandy, olive oil and seasoning. 5. Slice the onion and scatter over the meat, cover with the red wine. Marinate overnight. 6. Cut the bacon into lardons and fry in the butter. Drain the meat of the red wine and fry the onion in the bacon butter. 7. Dry the hare pieces and coat in the flour then fry the meat in the oil, browning lightly. Add the bacon and onion. 8. Moisten the meat with the red wine marinade and add garlic, bouquet garni, tomato purée and brown stock. 9. Bring to the boil on the stove, skim and transfer to the oven with a lid. 10. Test after 2 hours, cook for another half hour or so if required. 11. Remove the meat from the sauce and pass into a clean pan (see note). 12. Reduce the sauce by half and add the garnish of glazed button mushrooms, onions and lardons of bacon.

SADDLE OF HARE 2 saddles of hare, trimmed of all skin and sinew 50g dripping salsify and pancetta fritters (homage to John Williams) 3 thick stems of salsify Flour, water and salt for a ‘blanc’ 1 lemon 12 thin slices of pancetta 30g fresh white breadcrumbs 10g grated Parmesan 2 eggs LEMON AND GARLIC PURÉE 50g new season garlic 50g lemon juice

SADDLE OF HARE 1. Season and seal the meat in a pan and transfer to the oven to cook for 7-8 minutes. 2. Allow to rest for 10 minutes before carving

Chef Magazine / Issue 22 / January / 2012

414

SALSIFY AND PANCETTA FRITTERS 1. Wash, peel and rewash the salsify, store in acidulated water. 2. Cook in a ‘blanc’ in the usual way. Allow to cool in the cooking liquor. 3. Wash off the ‘blanc’ and dry in a cloth. 4. Make sure the pancetta is very cold and cut very thinly on the slicer. 5. Wrap the salsify in the pancetta. 6. Pané the stems, but instead of pure white breadcrumbs use a combination of threequarters breadcrumbs and one-quarter finely grated parmesan. 7. Deep fry to order. TO SERVE Transfer the meat to an appropriate serving dish and pour over the sauce and garnish with greens, finishing with Boulangere potatoes layered with jugged hare and salsify and pancetta fritters. CHEF’S NOTE I do not see very many young chefs using the blood to finish a sauce these days and to a degree I can understand why. It does change the consistency of the sauce and some may say that it is somehow less acceptable to use the blood of an animal in a dish nowadays. However, if you decide to use it then at the stage of number 11 in the hare method above the blood should be mixed with one half of its volume of double cream. The sauce should then be brought to the boil and removed from the heat, the cream and blood mixture should then be whisked into the sauce and not boiled again.

Almond tart This tart makes a very versatile dessert because it can be served with all kinds of fruit. For example, in summer it is lovely with raspberries and crème fraîche or with baked fresh apricots (to bake apricots, cut them in half and remove the stones, then spread in a baking dish and sprinkle with vanilla sugar and Amaretto to taste; bake at 180°C until soft). Pears baked with lemon and sugar are good too. In winter try the tart with marinated prunes. It is always best freshly baked, when the pastry is crisp and the filling moist. Makes a 26cm tart.

INGREDIENTS

METHOD

SWEET PASTRY CASE 26CM 250g plain flour, plus extra for dusting 75g icing sugar, sifted 180g unsalted butter, chilled 2 organic egg yolks

SWEET PASTRY CASE 1. Put the flour, icing sugar and butter in a food processor and pulse until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add the egg yolks and pulse for 10 seconds, then tip into a bowl and mix briefly by hand into a dough. 2. Cover the bowl and leave the pastry to rest in the fridge for 1 hour. 3. Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured surface and press into a 26cm fluted, loose-bottomed tart tin to line evenly. Leave to rest in the fridge for 30 minutes. 4. Preheat the oven to 180°C. 5. Line the tart case with baking parchment and fill with baking beans. Blind bake for 15 minutes until golden in colour. 6. Remove the paper and baking beans, then return the tart case to the oven to bake for a further 5 minutes. Set aside. Leave the oven on.

ALMOND FILLING 300g blanched (skinned) almonds 300g unsalted butter, softened 300g caster sugar 3 organic eggs TO SERVE Crème fraîche

ALMOND FILLING 1. Make the filling while the pastry case is baking. Grind the almonds in a blender or food processor; tip into a bowl and set aside. Cream the butter with the sugar in the processor until pale and fluffy. Add the almonds, then mix in the eggs one at a time until combined. 2. Spread the filling in the tart case. Bake for 30-40 minutes until the filling is golden brown. Cool before serving with crème fraîche.

VENISON 1. Season the loin with salt and seal in a hot frying pan on all sides with clarified butter. Cook for 4-5 minutes in a hot oven at 180°C or longer if you prefer the meat medium. 2. Season with pepper and allow to cool on a wire rack. Wrap and cover the cold loin of venison with the spinach leaves. Keep in the fridge. CHICKEN MOUSSE 1. Cut the chicken in small cubes and pass through a food processor for 2 minutes, then rub through a fine sieve. 2. Place the chicken flesh in a bowl over ice, add the salt, cayenne and egg white, beat well and slowly add the cream, beating constantly. WILD MUSHROOM FARCE In a bowl, mix all the ingredients together and keep in the fridge. WRAPPING 1. Roll the puff pastry to a rectangle large enough to enclose the venison and 2mm thick. Place onto a piece of baking paper then cut the crepes large enough to enclose the venison plus a little extra and lay on top of the pastry. 2. Spread an even layer of the farce on top of the crepe, about 1cm thick, then place the venison on top. Fold the crepes coated in the farce over the top of the venison. Trim the open ends, egg wash and fold in like an envelope. Turn the venison over and egg wash the presentation side. Place into the fridge and allow to rest for at least 15 minutes.

3.

Egg wash a second time and score the pastry in a criss cross pattern with a sharp knife. Cook in a preheated oven at 180°C on a lined baking sheet for approximately 15-20 minutes depending on your liking. Remove from the oven and place onto a wire rack to rest for 5 minutes before serving.

SAUCE 1. In a large heavy-based but shallow pan add the clarified butter and heat. Fry the venison bones over a high heat until golden brown, then remove any excess fat. Add the diced vegetables to the bones and continue to fry. When the vegetables have taken on a little colour, deglaze with the Hermitage wine, add the vinegar and reduce by two-thirds. 2. Add the stock and bring to the boil. When boiling, skim off any excess fat from the surface and reduce the heat to a simmer. Simmer for approximately 30 minutes, skimming the surface often. After the sauce has had sufficient time to cook, pass through a fine sieve and muslin into a clean saucepan and bring back to the boil. Reduce to your desired consistency and taste. Season with salt and pepper. Finish with the butter at the last second. TO SERVE On a warm plate, spread the wilted spinach leaves and place two slices of cooked loin of venison on top. Arrange all other garnishes around and drizzle over the sauce.

Tarte des demoiselles tatin (Upside-down apple tart or tarte tatin)

Alain’s recipe for tarte tatin has been honed over many years. “The choice of apple is vital” he says, “I like to use those such as Braeburn and Cox’s because they have a the right texture and a good, crisp acidity. You can’t use ‘woolly’ apples, such as Golden Delicious because they don’t hold their shape, and you don’t want apples that discolour during cooking. As a safeguard I rub the peeled apples with lemon juice before cooking to keep them white and provide a nice, even colour once they’re cooked. I also use a puff-pastry lid to keep all the flavour in.” It’s not a simple dish, however: “the combination of butter and sugar is critical and often needs adjustment – every apple is different. But it’s one of the most popular desserts on our menu.”

INGREDIENTS

METHOD

200g puff pastry 5 medium apples, not too ripe (preferably Braeburn or Cox’s) Juice of ½ lemon 120g butter, slightly softened 160g caster sugar

1.

2. TO SERVE Cinnamon ice cream or crème fraîche

3.

Peel the apples, cut them in half and remove the cores. Sprinkle the fruit with lemon juice. Spread the butter evenly over the base of a tatin mould or a heavy ovenproof 22-24 cm diameter frying pan, 6 cm deep, to form a thick layer. Sprinkle on the sugar and arrange the apples rounded side-down in the pan. Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured surface to a round, about 3mm thick and 2 cm wider than the diameter of the mould or frying pan. Prick the pastry in 8-10 places with a fork. Roll it loosely onto the rolling pin, then unroll it over the apples. Cut off any excess pastry with scissors, leaving a 1 cm border all round the edge. Refrigerate for at least 20 minutes. Preheat the oven to 180°C/Gas 4. Place the frying pan over a medium heat for 10-15 minutes until the butter and sugar have amalgamated and bubbled to a lovely pale amber caramel. Use a small palette knife to lift the edge of the pastry all round to check that the butter and sugar have caramelised evenly. Place in the oven for about 25 minutes until the pastry is cooked.

Chef Magazine / Issue 7 / September / 2008

TO SERVE 1. Take the tart from the oven and quickly invert it onto a serving plate, taking care not to burn yourself. Protect your forearms and hands, using a cloth, as it will be very hot. 2. The pastry will now be underneath and the fruit on top. The apples may have moved slightly – use the tip of a small knife to reposition them if necessary. Serve at once, taking care as the caramel topping will be very hot. Delicious with cinnamon ice cream or crème fraîche. NOTE Pears make a good alternative to the apples. In that case, I would recommend that you use Comice pears, which have a sweet taste. You must make sure, when you purchase them, that they are a touch under-ripe. Or for an original variation use mangoes instead of apples and halve the quantity of butter.

Finely chop half the thyme and crush the peppercorns. 4. Sprinkle over the rabbit pieces. 5. Cover with greaseproof paper and leave to marinate in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours. 6. Turn the fillets after 2 hours.

SAUCE Rabbit bones and trimmings 2 carrots 1 large onion 1 garlic clove 100ml Armagnac 1 litre chicken stock (optional) or water 180g marrons glacés 60g butter ONIONS 20g clarified butter 200g small button onions Pinch of sugar CELERIAC 1 root celeriac 50g clarified butter 4 thick slices white bread 1 bouquet garni Salt Black pepper, freshly ground

SAUCE Preheat the oven to 240°C. 1. Remove the liver, heart and lungs from the rabbits. Chop the shoulders and carcasses. 2. Place them in a roasting pan in the very hot oven and stir with a slotted spoon, so that the bones are well browned on all sides. 3. Peel and coarsely chop the carrots and the large onions. 4. Five minutes before removing the roasting pan from the oven, add the carrots and onion, together with the crushed garlic clove. Tip the contents of the roasting pan into a saucepan and pour in the chicken stock and 500ml water. 5. Set over low heat and simmer for about 1 hour, then strain through a muslinlined sieve. 6. In a shallow pan set over a high heat, reduce the Armagnac by half. 7. Add the strained rabbit stock and reduce until it becomes syrupy. 8. Crumble in the marrons glacés and stir in 60g butter, a little at a time. 9. Season to taste with salt and pepper. BUTTON ONIONS 1. Peel and wash them. 2.

474

3.

When they are golden, add just a little water if necessary, cover the pan and simmer gently until tender. Keep warm.

CELERIAC 1. Peel and cut four slices, 1.5 cm thick. 2. Trim into neat oval shapes. 3. Place them in a sauté pan large enough to take all the slices in one layer, cover with water and add 50g butter and a pinch of salt. 4. Set the pan over high heat and cook until all the water has evaporated. 5. The celeriac should be a lovely golden colour. 6. Turn the slices with a palette knife and keep warm. CROUTONS 1. Cut out a rabbit shape from each slice of bread. 2. Heat the remaining butter in a frying pan and fry the rabbit croûtons until golden on both sides. 3. Drain on absorbent paper. 4. Just before serving, grill the rabbit pieces in a ridged grilling pan for 3-5 minutes, making sure they are attractively marked with a lattice pattern. TO SERVE 1. Place the celeriac ovals on a serving dish or individual plates, then arrange the rabbit fillets in a criss-cross pattern on top. 2. Next, make little piles of button onions and pour the sauce around the celeriac ovals. 3. Lastly, set out the rabbit croûtons, with sprigs of thyme between their paws. 4. As always, the presentation of the dish is extremely important. Thyme is not essential but the green provides a good colour contrast with the rabbit croutons. Yes Chef!

Roast salmon with spicy chorizo and aïoli

INGREDIENTS

METHOD

6-8 new potatoes (e.g. Charlotte, Belle de Fontenay) 250g shelled broad beans 6 little Gem lettuces 600ml veal stock 2 tsp caster sugar Salt and pepper Olive oil 6 salmon pieces (175g each), skin on 30 slices of spicy chorizo

VEAL STOCK 1. Roast the bones and calf’s foot in a hot oven 220°C, turning occasionally until brown all over, then put them into a large saucepan. 2. Put the onion, carrots and celery into the roasting pan and roast until golden, turning frequently with a wooden spatula. Pour off any excess fat and put the roasted vegetables into the saucepan with the bones. 3. Put the roasting pan over high heat and add 500ml of the water to deglaze the pan; scrape the bottom with a wooden spatula to loosen all the caramelised sugars, then pour into the saucepan with the bones. 4. Add the remaining ingredients and bring to the boil. Skim off the scum and fat that come to the surface. Turn down the heat and simmer gently for 3½ hours, skimming occasionally. Pass through a fine sieve and leave to cool. This can be kept in the refrigerator for 8-10 days, or frozen.

VEAL STOCK MAKES ABOUT 3.5 LITRES 1.5kg veal knuckle bones, chopped 1 calf’s foot, split 1 large onion, roughly chopped 2 large carrots, roughly chopped 1 stick of celery, roughly chopped 5 litres water 2 cloves of garlic 2 sprigs of thyme ½ tbsp tomato purée AÏOLI 5 cloves of garlic 2 egg yolks 1 tsp Dijon mustard 2 tsp white wine vinegar Salt and cayenne pepper 275ml light olive oil 1-2tbsp cold water

AÏOLI 1. Peel the garlic and slice the cloves lengthways, removing any green shoots. Put the garlic in a blender with the yolks, mustard, vinegar, salt and cayenne, and blend at full speed. Gradually trickle in the olive oil while the blender is running. 2. After half of the oil has been incorporated stop and scrape down the sides of the blender with a rubber spatula. Continue to trickle in the oil, scraping the sides of the blender once or twice more, and adding the water with the last of the oil to thin the consistency slightly, until you have a smooth garlic mayonnaise.

VEGETABLES 1. Boil the potatoes in salted water until tender. Drain, peel, cut into thick slices and keep warm. 2. Boil the broad beans in salted water until tender. Refresh in ice-cold water then remove the outer skins to reveal the tender bright green beans. 3. Blanch the lettuces in boiling water for 3 minutes. Refresh in ice-cold water and squeeze dry. Put the lettuces in a wide pan with the stock, sugar, salt and pepper and boil until the stock has thickened enough to coat the lettuce slightly; turn and baste the lettuce frequently as it cooks. Keep warm. TO SERVE 1. Heat the oven to 180°C. 2. Heat a non-stick frying pan until very hot. Add a drop of olive oil and cook the salmon, skin side down, until browned. Turn over and cook the other side; this should take no more than 2-3 minutes on each side. The skin should be crispy yet the fish should remain very pink. 3. Warm the potato slices, broad beans and chorizo in the oven for a couple of minutes. 4. Put a lettuce in the centre of each plate with some of its cooking liquid. Arrange the broad beans, chorizo and potato slices around the lettuce. Drizzle generously with aïoli, then lay the salmon, skin side up, on top of the lettuce.

494

METHOD POTATO GNOCCHI 1 kg King Edward potatoes 1 egg 300g pasta flour Salt and pepper Grated nutmeg 50g grated parmesan Double cream Olive oil

QUASIS OF VENISON 1. Season the venison with freshly milled salt and pepper and roll in the Dijon mustard, cover and keep in the fridge overnight. 2. Preheat the oven to 220°C. In a roasting tray heat the duck fat, place the already seasoned quasis in the hot duck fat, seal and brown. Place this into the oven with the sprigs of thyme and 3 whole cloves of garlic, and roast for 20 minutes. Remove from the roasting dish, cover with foil and leave to rest for 10 minutes. Remove all fat from the roasting dish and deglaze with a little water, keeping the juices to one side to finish the sauce later. 3. Pan fry the sliced ceps in duck fat until golden brown, add the finely chopped garlic cloves, cook for a few more seconds, place in a serving dish and deglaze the pan with half of the Cognac, once again keeping this for the sauce. 4. To finish the sauce mix together all the deglazed juices in a pan, add the red wine, the rest of the Cognac, the green peppercorns and redcurrant jelly, bring to the boil and reduce slightly. Take off the heat and leave to cool a little; add to this the hare’s blood a little at a time – it may not be necessary to use all the blood depending on the reduction already achieved. RED CABBAGE COMPOTE 1. Into a heavy-based casserole dish place the duck fat, thinly sliced shallots and crushed cloves of garlic, cook gently until soft but not coloured. 2. To this add the juice of the orange, red wine, vinegar and the chicken stock, keep simmering gently. Then add the raisins, bay leaf, cinnamon stick, nutmeg, cloves, juniper berries, the zest of orange and the

sugar. Bring to the boil and cook for 5 minutes, season to taste. Add the thinly sliced red cabbage, cook for 25 minutes. In the last 10 minutes of cooking time add the chestnuts. Remove the cinnamon stick before serving. The cabbage will keep for several days in the fridge (without the added chestnuts).

POTATO GNOCCHI 1. Preheat the oven to 220°C. Wash and bake the potatoes until soft, remove the insides and pass through a fine sieve. Place in a bowl. Season then beat in the egg quickly. Add two handfuls of the pasta flour and bind together until a silky smooth dough is achieved. Place the rest of the flour on to a pastry table, tip out the dough and knead until all the flour is incorporated. Do not overwork the dough. Divide the dough into 4 and roll into long sausage shapes the thickness of your finger, cut at an angle into 2cm long pieces. 2. Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil and add the gnocchi, reduce to a simmer for 2-3 minutes – the gnocchi will rise to the top when cooked. Remove from the pan with a sieve, drain and place in a tray, sprinkle with olive oil. The cooked gnocchi will keep in the fridge for 2-3 days. 3. Place the gnocchi into an ovenproof dish, pour over a little double cream and sprinkle with parmesan, grate over a little nutmeg, cook for 10 minutes until starting to colour. TO SERVE Sauce the plates, add a little of the red cabbage, slice the rump and place on top, add the ceps and gnocchi. Yes Chef! Magazine / Issue 12 / January / 2010

Sacher torte

There are two ‘original’ versions of Sacher torte and then there is John Huber’s – which is simply the best. I still teach this version of Sacher torte and will never adulterate it, and in fact I introduced it to Westminster Kingsway College this year for their Diploma Exam. When John passed away I spoke to his son Justin and discovered to my delight, that Justin’s birthday cake of choice throughout his entire life had been this Sacher Torte – funny because my son Luke from early days when asked what he would like for his birthday cake had always opted for ‘that chocolate and apricot cake’. John Huber was my teacher, advisor and friend for 30 years, and I just had to present this recipe to celebrate those memories and share something wonderful from him.

INGREDIENTS

METHOD

CAKE 75g butter, very soft 40g caster sugar 35g caster sugar 100g egg white 65g egg yolk 90g Cacao Barry Excellence couverture, melted to 45°C 45g fecule (or 25g flour and 25g cornflour) 10g cocoa powder 25g ground hazelnuts or almonds lightly roasted

CAKE 1. Cream together butter and sugar. 2. Add yolks to melted couverture and swiftly add in to butter mix. 3. Whisk egg whites and sugar to stiff peak meringue. 4. Sieve dry ingredients together. 5. Alternatively add the meringue and dry ingredients into the butter mix, ending with meringue. 6. Pour into 20cm greased and floured ring. 7. Bake 180°C for approximately 20 minutes until firm. 8. Turn out, upside down, onto paper sprinkled with semolina and leave to cool. 9. Cut into 2 slices. 10. Sandwich with good quality or homemade raspberry jam. 11. Pour over boiling sieved apricot jam (it should be a thick layer – think Jaffa cake), allow to cool.

SACHER GANACHE 100g cream 15g glucose 120g plain couverture 53%, buttons 80g milk couverture buttons 20g butter, pomade

SACHER GANACHE 1. Boil cream and glucose, pour onto couvertures. 2. Emulsify with a spatula then add butter in small blobs.

Chicken and morel sausage roll

INGREDIENTS

METHOD

2 skinless chicken breasts (roughly chopped) 20 dried morels 200g puff pastry 1 large egg yolk

PANDA 1. Make a panada by simmering the milk, cream, shallot, bay leaf and allspice for 5 minutes. 2. Place the bread into a metal bowl and pour the mixture onto the bread, whisk until smooth and allow to cool. 3. Soak 20 dried morels in boiling water for 10 minutes, remove stalks and roughly dice then set aside.

PANADA 200ml milk 200ml cream 1 shallot, chopped 1 bay leaf Pinch ground allspice 6 slices white bread, crusts removed and roughly chopped MOREL REDUCTION* 1 tsp Morel dust 100ml veal jus 50ml pedro ximenez sherry 1 tbsp chopped black truffle 2 tbsp snipped chives SAUCE 200ml veal jus 1 tbsp white truffle oil 3 tbsp olive oil Tomato concasse Snipped chives

MOREL REDUCTION 1. Place half of the morel water into a saucepan along with the morel dust, jus and pedro ximenez sherry. 2. Bring to the simmer and reduce to a glaze. 3. Allow to cool and add the chopped truffle and snipped chives. FILLING 1. Place chicken breasts into a food processor and blitz to a pulp. 2. Add the panada and the morel reduction. 3. Whizz together until combined well, scraping down the sides of the machine if necessary. 4. Add the chopped morels and season with salt and pepper.

5.

6.

Roll half of the mixture tightly in a large piece of cling film to resemble a long sausage and secure the ends. Repeat with the rest of the mix. Bring a large pan of water to the simmer and poach the sausages for 15-20 minutes until cooked through. Plunge into iced water until completely cold then remove cling film and pat dry.

TO FINISH 1. Roll out the puff pastry to 3-4 mm as evenly as you can. Brush with the egg yolk and place one of the sausages into the centre and roll the pastry around it to resemble a large sausage roll. Allow to rest in the fridge. 2. Brush with more egg yolk before baking in the oven at 220°C until crisp and golden. 3. Meanwhile, make the sauce by heating the veal jus with the truffle oil, olive oil, tomato concasse and chives. 4. Simply slice the sausage roll, place into a white bowl and spoon over the jus. *NOTE I make the morel dust by simply drying the morels further by placing on a tray in my hot plate for 3-4 hours and then grinding them in a coffee grinder.

When just hot and hazy add the cracked cardamom, cloves and cassia bark and sauté for a minute on medium heat. 2. Add the sliced onion and sauté until hazy or translucent. Do not allow to brown, therefore keep the flame on a medium setting. 3. Add the garlic, ginger and green chillies, again taking care not to brown – the above process should not take more than 5 minutes. 4. Mix the turmeric, cumin and coriander powders in approximately 100-150ml of water and add to the pan. 5.
