4cm-piece fresh ginger
2 tbsp soy sauce (any kind)

1 tsp ground turmeric

1 red pepper, deseeded

80g tenderstem broccoli

1 courgette

80g sugarsnap peas

300g raw peeled king prawns
100g fresh rice noodles (if using dried/instant, follow the pack instructions on portion size and noodle prep as you won’t need as many and you might need to soak them!) 2 tbsp unsweetened peanut butter

Method

  1. Heat the oil in a pan over a low heat. Then chop the onion and cook for 5 minutes. Chop and deseed the chilli, then peel and grate the garlic and ginger. Throw into the pan and soften for 2 minutes.
  2. Add the soy sauce and turmeric, and stir.
  3. Chop the veg into bite-sized chunks and chuck them all in. I love eating loads of colour.
  4. Add your king prawns and cook for 2 minutes before stirring in the rice noodles too. Give them 2 more minutes, then stir in the peanut butter (it melts over the hot ingredients and coats everything, yum).
  5. For a vegan version: swap prawns for Quorn ‘chicken’ pieces.

For the asparagus, broad beans and peas

4 asparagus, handful of peas and broad beans

Trim the asparagus, pop broad beans out of the shell and de pod the peas and cook in the butter emulsion.

 

Method

  1. Remove the duck breasts of the crown, trim of any excess fat from the whole bird and keep aside. Remove the legs and offal from the bird and also keep aside. Remove any excess fat from the bird or the legs. Place the bones on a tray, place in the oven at 200°C until a dark golden brown. When the bones have achieved a dark golden brown colour, place in a pressure cooker with water, keeping the tray, deglaze the tray with tomato paste and water and add to the pressure cooker. Leave to simmer, checking every 20 minutes. Allow 1 hour and 30 minutes to reach the correct stock. When the correct stock and colour is reached, take out the bones and strain the stock from muslin into a pan to reduce further, until correct desired consistency.
  2. To cook the duck breasts, set up a sous vide to 60°C. When the duck breasts have carefully been removed form the crown, trim the breast. Season both sides of the breast. With a blow torch, torch the skin side of the breast, until a golden colour is achieved, this will also render the fat down. When blow torched, place both breast in individual vac pac bags. Place the breast in the sous vide for 40 minutes. After 40 minutes, place the breast in cold water. Set aside until needed. When needed, place skin side down in a dry pan, pressing down to render then fat down. Cook for around 7 minutes front side and back, leave to rest and trim of the tops and bottoms of the breasts, cut into two length ways and serve.
  3. Set a fryer to 180°C. Mince the duck legs and place to one side, then mince the offal. Weigh the amount of duck leg meat, then weigh ¼ of the weight in bulgur wheat, leave to soak in boiling heat water. When the bulgur wheat has increased in size, drain of the liquid and squeeze the remaining liquid out of the bulgur wheat using a j cloth. Place the shallots and spices in a pan, along with garlic. Once transparent, add the offal until cooked and season. Mix duck legs with bulgur wheat and coriander and add salt and paper. Wet your hand lightly, place a small amount of the leg meat and flatten, then place a small amount of offal mix inside and gently fold together to create a quenelle shape. Set aside in the fridge until needed. When needed place 2 in the fryer at a time until a golden dark colour is achieved. To achieve the gloss on top of the kibbeh, reduce some chicken stock with duck stock and of the heat add some butter until glossy and thick and then coat the kibbeh in the mixture.
  4. Line ramekins with parchment paper. Peel potatoes, cut on a mandolin (3mm thick), cut the potato with a 6cm cutter and place in a bowl full of water. Place the duck fat on the heat until rendered down. Arrange the cut potato evenly, every layer brush the potato with duck fat and season every layer. Place a round of parchment paper on top and place a smaller ramekin on top of the potatoes. Place a tray on top and add two cans of anything to press. Place in fridge, leave for 20 minutes. When pressed after the 20 minutes, place in the oven at 180°C in the ramekins for 30 minutes. When cooked, place a dry pan on the heat, to achieve a golden colour.

For the hollandaise sauce

6 egg yolks

2 teaspoon caster sugar

2 tablespoon white wine vinegar

4 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

350g unsalted butter

10g chopped chervil

Method

  1. NB Each side of salmon yields 10-12 portions therefore 3 whole fish required!
  2. Scale each of the salmon. Remove the fins. Fillet each salmon and remove the pin bones. Trim the salmon by removing the tail and excess at the top of the fillet. Carefully remove flesh starting 3 cm from the top of the fish then cutting downward. Cut across to the belly and carefully remove. Reserve under refrigeration until required.
  3. Chop the shallots finely and sweat in butter. Add madras powder and cook out. Add cayenne, lemon juice and seasoning. Allow to cool.
  4. Warm the Arbroath Smokies in the hold o’ mat at 65oC for approximately 20 minutes. Remove the flesh from above the lateral line only as the lower flesh contains too may bones – this can be reserved for another dish. Dice the salmon belly from the royal and dice the Finnan haddock then place the fish in a large bowl. NB Only add the Smokies at the end as to preserve the natural segments.
  5. Fold in the herbs and the shallot mix and correct seasoning. Scale the filling at 260g per fish to avoid overfilling. Season the salmon fillets and then spoon the prepared filling along the ridge of the salmon sides. Roll each up very tightly in lots of cling film to completely envelop the filling – try to achieve a teardrop shape. Chill roulades thoroughly before slicing into portions for steaming. Lay portions onto lightly buttered non-stick 1/3 sided gastronome trays with 10 portions on each tray. Steam for approximately 6 ½ minutes to a core of 55oC at 100oC steam temperature.
  6. Pre-heat the steamer to 100oC.
  7. Brush the timbales heavily with softened butter.
  8. Place the garlic in a pan with the cream then bring to a simmer and allow to infuse.
  9. In a large pan prepare a beurre noisette then add the spinach and cook for 2 minutes. Spread out over a tray and allow to cool. Squeeze all of the excess moisture out of the spinach in a dry cloth and discard.
  10. Strain the cream to remove the garlic. Puree in a blender with the cream and eggs. Scrape down each batch after a minute or so to ensure the spinach is evenly blended. Give a further 1 minute to assure the mix is perfectly smooth. Season to taste.
  11. Place the moulds onto trays of 10 and fill ¾ (40mls) full. Cover with cling film and steam for approximately 35 minutes until lightly set. When cooked rest and cover in cling film.
  12. NB If cooking conventionally place into a Bain Marie of hot water - the water should come ¾ of the way up the timbale.
  13. Loosely cover each mould with buttered silicone discs and foil to prevent water penetration and cook for approximately 45-50 minutes – bear in mind convection ovens will be quicker 25-30 minutes!
  14. Blanch the vegetables in smaller batches in boiling salted water, refresh immediately in iced water then drain.
  15. Portion into disposable cups, season lightly and brush with melted butter. Rechauffe in the Electrolux/Combi steamer on the 2 minutes marker with the salmon!
  16. Dry roast the spices and allow to cool before adding the salt. Place all of the ingredients in a food processor. Blend to a stiff dough. Allow to rest. Pin out and then pass through a pasta machine form the largest to the 2nd finest. Pass through the fine spaghetti cutter and cut into lengths of approximately 6cm. Deep fry at 160oC until crisp. Drain on paper towel. Season whilst hot.
  17. Wash all of the fish bones in running cold water until the water is perfectly clear. Meanwhile trim, peel, wash and cut the vegetables into mirepoix. Sweat with the herbs without colour in the butter. Remove when cooked and drain over a colander. Place the residual liquid back into the pan and sweat the fish bones. Return the vegetables and the herbs. Deglaze with the wine and allow to cook out. Add the water, bring to the boil and allow to simmer for 20 minutes. Allow to settle then ladle from the top through a muslin. NB Allow to reduce by half for the fish sauce.
  18. Chop the shallots and the fennel finely. Sweat in 350g butter without colour – reserve the remaining 150g for ‘monter au beurre’! Add the spices and allow for aromates to be released. Allow to reduce by half through slow cooking. Add the alcohol and also reduce slowly by half. Add the cream and reduce by half. Strain and whilst hot infuse with the prepared ginger. NB The infusion of ginger to fish sauce is 20g ginger per 200 of sauce. Reheat the sauce and add the crème fraiche. If necessary thicken slightly with the arrowroot.
  19. Turn up the spinach timbale and drain the excess butter into a bowl. Place onto the plate at 2 o’clock. Spoon on the drained vegetables and napper with a little Hollandaise sauce. Top with the beer biscuits. Garnish with a sprig of chervil. Place on the steamed salmon Royal and spoon round the gingered fish sauce. Serve piping hot.

Ingredients

1 rabbit loin

For the marinade

1.5 tbsp lemon grass fresh, blended

0.75 tbsp turmeric ground

0.125 tbsp spice cumin ground

0.5 tsp salt

0.75 tbsp sugar granulated

Method

  1. Method for the satay: With wild rabbit I find it better to soak the whole carcass in salted water for a few hours, then give it a rinse and pat dry. Remove the silver skin from the loins by carefully piercing it with a sharp paring knife then lifting the blade up and away from the meat.
  2. With the blade pushing against the silver skin, slide the knife across the loin to remove as much as this membrane as possible.
  3. Then cut into one side of the back bone as close to the spine as possible, run the knife along the length of the loin and down the rib cage to release the meat. Trim off the belly flap and any other unwanted silver skin.
  4. To Marinade: Blend all the ingredients for the marinade together. Double over a length of cling film across a chopping board and place a good teaspoon of satay marinade on it.
  5. Place the rabbit loin onto the film and roll it in the marinade. Roll the cling film up tightly to form the rabbit into a cylinder. Tie the ends.
  6. At this stage you can also vac pack the rabbit - the compression will help the saddle take in the marinade. Leave overnight if possible.
  7. Poach the parcels in some simmering water for 8-10 minutes. Remove and rest for 5 minutes, then open up the parcels, place the cylinders on a cooling wire to drain off any excess moisture for a few minutes.
  8. Carve into rounds about ½ cm wide and serve whilst warm on crostini.

Ingredients

salt and black pepper

6 rabbit legs

100g butter

100ml white wine vinegar

3 tbsp Dijon mustard

500ml chicken stock

150ml double cream

1 tbsp dried oregano

1 tsp smoked paprika

1 tsp chopped rosemary

6 garlic cloves, crushed

2 bay leaves.

Method

  1. Season the rabbit legs. Melt the butter in a heavy-based casserole pan and sear the rabbit legs. Remove from the pan and drain.
  2. Swill the casserole with the vinegar and boil to reduce by two-thirds. Add all the remaining ingredients and bring to the boil. When boiling, add the rabbit back to the casserole, cover and cook gently until the meat falls freely off the bone
  3. Take out the rabbit and set aside. Boil the cooking liquor to reduce it to a sauce-like consistency (it will coat the back of a spoon)
  4. Adjust the seasoning and return the rabbit to the pot to warm through
  5. Serve with sauté potatoes.

Ingredients

3 egg whites
200g caster sugar
1 tsp white wine
vinegar
1 tsp cornflour

To fill:
500ml double
cream
2 tbsp caster sugar

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 120C/Gas ½ and line a baking sheet with greaseproof paper. Clean your chosen whisking bowl with a drop of lemon juice, to degrease it.
  2. Whisk the whites in an upright mixer or with an electric hand-whisk on top speed. When they start to go frothy, add the sugar a tablespoon at a time, whisking constantly. Once the mix has thickened and all the sugar is in, stir the vinegar and cornflour together in an eggcup and tip this in too. Carry on whisking at full pelt for about another 3 minutes until firm and glossy
  3. As soon as the mix is ready, dollop on to the prepared tray. For individual meringues, use a large serving spoon or spatula to make 4 Willy Wonka-esque constructions or 6–8 kiddysized ones. For a pavlova, dollop the whole lot into the middle and spread out to a circle roughly 25cm across, with a higher rim around the edge and a lower, flatter plateau in the middle.
  4. . Bake for 1¼ hours, without opening the oven at any stage, then turn the oven off and keep the door shut. Leave the meringue/s in there until the oven has cooled completely. When meringue munching time is near, whip the cream with the caster sugar until thick but still a touch floppy. Use it as extravagant glue to stick two meringues together and watch with joy as small jaws try their hardest to wrap themselves around the prize.
