Ingredients

4 lightly smoked venison shanks
1 teaspoon black peppercorns
1 teaspoon allspice berries
1 teaspoon juniper berries
8 cloves
1 cinnamon stick
1 hot dried Chile
2 bay leaves
6 ounces of slab bacon cut into chunks (use thick-cut slices if you can’t get slab bacon)
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 onions, grated on a coarse grater
1 head of garlic, cloves peeled and roughly chopped
1 bottle red wine
2 cups beef, venison or other stock
2 tablespoons molasses
salt

For the glazed baby beets
20 baby beets, scrubbed
2 cups apricot juice
3 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons honey

For the rooster and celeriac mash
900g (2lb) celeriac
900g (2lb) Rooster potatoes
142ml carton double cream
150ml (¼ pint) milk
Salt and ground black pepper

Method

  1. Salt shanks and set aside.
  2. In a shallow pot with a lid (a Dutch oven will do), put spices and herbs in with the wine and molasses. If your bacon had the rind on it, put that in, too. Turn the heat to medium-low.
  3. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees C.
  4. Pour olive oil into a second pan set over medium heat. Fry the bacon slowly, turning all sides to get crispy. As each piece crispifies, toss it into the pot with the wine. Do not let the wine pot go past a gentle simmer. When the bacon is done, brown the shanks on all sides except the one with the bone; this helps the shank stay together after long cooking. Take your time on this one, and do this over medium heat. It could take 20 minutes. Move the shanks to the wine pot, bone side sticking up.
  5. Put the onions in the other pan and turn the heat up to high. Toss to combine. You will notice the onions will deglaze the pan. After about 5 minutes like this, add the garlic and toss to combine. Continue cooking until you hear the sound change: That’s onions losing enough moisture to begin browning. Cook another minute or two. Pour in the stock and mix it well with the onions. Bring to a furious boil and make sure you’ scraped everything off the bottom of the pan. Add to the wine pot, mixing in with all the other ingredients. Make sure the shanks are still bone side up.
  6. Cover and cook in the oven for 3-4 hours. Venison, being wild, is difficult to gauge doneness — you might have shot an old deer, or a yearling. Each will require different cooking times. When the meat is almost falling off the bone, remove it gently and tent it with foil. Fish out the bay leaves, cinnamon stick and as many cloves, peppercorns, allspice and juniper berries as you can in a few minutes. It’s OK if you don’t get them all. Pass the jus through a very fine sieve or Tammy cloth and then serve over the shanks
  7. Glazed baby beets: In a large sauté pan, add the beets and the apricot juice. Cover and cook on medium high for 10 minutes. Add the vinegar and honey and cook for another 10 minutes. Pull off of the heat and keep covered for an additional 5 minutes.
  8. Rooster and Celeriac mash: Peel and roughly chop celeriac and Rooster potatoes and put in a pan of salted water. Bring to the boil and cook for 20-30 minutes or until the vegetables are tender. Drain and mash either with a potato masher or by whizzing quickly in a food processor. Heat double cream and milk and beat into the mash over a low heat. Season well with salt and ground black pepper.

Ingredients

1.5 kg shoulder of lamb (bone in)
100g each of roughly chopped carrot, onion and celery
2 bay leaves
large sprig fresh thyme
large sprig fresh rosemary
½ tsp black peppercorns
lamb stock sufficient to cover the lamb
12 slices prosciutto ham

For the sauce
1 tbsp vegetable oil
250g mirepoix carrot, onion, celery
2 large cloves garlic
200ml red wine
1-litre strong veal stock
500ml reduced braising liquor

 

Method

  1. Pre heat oven to 150 degrees C.
  2. Heat a deep roasting pan on a high flame and brown the lamb shoulder on all sides, then remove from the pan.
  3. Add the roughly chopped vegetables and allow to brown. Reduce the heat and return the lamb to the pan along with the herbs, peppercorns and sufficient lamb stock to cover.
  4. Cover and place in the oven and slowly braise for approximately 5 hours, check every hour and spoon the liquor over the lamb to ensure it does not dry out. The lamb will be cooked when it will easily fall away from the bone. Remove from the oven and allow the meat to cool whilst still in the liquor.
  5. When cool enough to handle, the meat should be separated from the bone and any excess fat. Retain the cooking liquor, place in a pan and reduce by half. Divide the liquor in two and reduce one half until further concentrated and syrupy. This will be used to bind the meat later, the other half will be used to make the sauce.
  6. The lamb should now be shredded using two forks. Add the concentrated lamb liquor to the shredded lamb, mix well so that the meat is moist but not wet.
  7. Check the seasoning.
  8. Lay out 6 slices of prosciutto ham on a large sheet of cling film, slightly overlap the ham with another 6 slices to form a large rectangle.
  9. Place all the shredded lamb on to the bottom third of the rectangle, squeeze together quite firmly to compact the meat. Using the cling film, carefully roll the meat in the ham to form a tight sausage shape. Twist the edges of the cling film as you roll so the “sausage” is as tight as can be. Tie the ends of the cling film as near to the meat as possible to secure. Chill the meat for at least two hours.
  10. To make the sauce, heat the vegetable oil in a pan and brown the mirepoix and garlic. Deglaze the pan with the wine and reduce by half. Add the veal stock and reduce again by half. Add the reduced lamb liquor and reduce finally by half again until the sauce reaches a rich shiny consistency, then pass through a sieve and strain.
  11. Slice the lamb through the cling film into 8 tournedos size portions and reheat in a gentle oven. Remove the cling film before serving.
  12. Serve with a potato and celeriac puree and market vegetables, pour some of the finished sauce over the lamb.

Ingredients

For the Heart
125g margarine softened
125g caster sugar
2 medium eggs
200g plain flour
10g Dr Oetker Baking Powder
10g Dr Oetker Bright Red Gel Food Colour

For the chocolate cake
115g margarine
115g caster sugar
2 medium eggs
5ml Dr. Oetker Madagascan Vanilla Extract
100g plain flour
25g Dr. Oetker Fine Dark Cocoa Powder (1 sachet/25g/1 oz)
5g Dr. Oetker Baking Powder

For the Decoration
40g Dr. Oetker Fine Cooks’ Milk Chocolate
40g Dr. Oetker Fine Cooks’ 72% Extra Dark Chocolate
40g unsalted butter

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C (160°C Fan, Gas Mark 4). Lightly grease a 7cm (2 ¾ inch) deep, 450g (1lb) loaf tin. To make the heart centre; Put the margarine in a bowl with the caster sugar and eggs. Sieve the flour and Baking Powder on top. Carefully mix all the ingredients together then whisk for a few seconds until well blended.
  2. Mix in enough Red Gel Food Colour to make a vibrant shade (you will need approx. 90 drops), and spoon into the loaf tin. Smooth the top and bake for about 1 hour until risen and firm to the touch – a skewer inserted into the centre should come out clean. Cool for 5 minutes, before turning on to a wire rack to cool completely.
  3. Put the cold loaf cake on a board and slice off both crusty ends. Cut the loaf into 7 slices. Using a 7.5cm (3inch) wide heart shaped cutter, cut out 1 heart from each slice – keep all the trimmings for cake pops or truffles. Place on a tray lined with baking parchment and freeze the hearts for 30 minutes.
  4. For the chocolate cake, wash out the loaf tin and re-grease. Put the margarine in a bowl with the caster sugar, eggs and Vanilla. Sieve the flour, cocoa and Baking Powder on top. Carefully mix all the ingredients together then whisk for a few seconds until well blended.
  5. Thickly spread some of the cake mixture over the bottom and sides of the tin, making sure it is completely covered. Arrange the sponge hearts, upright, down the length of the tin, closely together so that they support each other.
  6. Carefully spoon the remaining cake mixture on top of the hearts, gently tapping the tin on the work surface to help the mixture settle round the hearts. Make sure the hearts are well covered in cake mixture to help create the surprise.
  7. Put the tin on a baking tray and bake in the oven for about 50 minutes until risen and firm to the touch, and a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from the tin and leave to cool completely on a wire rack.
  8. To decorate, break the Extra Dark and Milk Chocolate into a small, heavy bottomed saucepan. Add the butter and 15ml (1 tbsp) water. Heat very gently, stirring occasionally, until melted together and smooth. Remove from the heat and set aside for about 20 minutes to cool to a thick, coating consistency.
  9. Put the loaf cake on the wire rack over a tray. When the chocolate mixture starts to thicken, spoon over the top of the loaf. Gently tap the wire rack on the tray to spread and smooth the icing on top, letting it drip down the sides of the cake. Leave to stand in a cool place for several minutes to allow the icing to set before transferring to a serving plate. Your cake is ready to slice and surprise!

25g unsalted butter
2g salt
2g pepper
50ml olive oil

For the red wine sauce
400g beef trimmings, diced
2 shallots, roughly sliced
2 garlic cloves, sliced
3 sprigs thyme
10g of unsalted butter
200ml CHEF® Red Wine Sauce
550ml CHEF® All Natural Veal Stock

For the silverskin onions
200g silverskin onions, small, peeled
10g of unsalted butter
5 thyme sprigs
1 garlic clove, crushed
250ml CHEF® All Natural Chicken Stock
1 tb.sp olive oil

For the mushrooms and pancetta
100g pancetta lardons
100g girolles
100g trompette mushrooms
1 tsp parsley, chopped
1 tb.sp olive oil

 

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4.
  2. To begin, make the potato purée. Wash the potatoes, and bake for about 2 hours in a preheated oven until they are soft in the middle.
  3. Remove the potatoes from the oven and whilst they are still hot, cut them in half and scoop out the soft flesh. Pass the flesh through a sieve quickly with a spatula.
  4. In a heavy-based pan, bring the cream and butter to the boil. Add the sieved potato and beat over the heat with a wooden spoon. Season the purée with salt and pepper, then add the olive oil and beat again until all of the oil has been mixed in. Cover and leave in a warm place until needed.
  5. To make the red wine sauce, place a pan over a medium heat. Once the pan is heated, add the beef trimmings and brown them well to release the fat. Add the shallots, garlic and thyme and cook until it is all caramelised.
  6. Add the 10g of butter, allow to coat and caramelise a little more, then add the CHEF® Red Wine Sauce to deglaze. Allow the sauce to bubble for a few minutes, then add the CHEF® All Natural Veal Stock. Reduce the heat and allow the sauce to bubble gently for 20 minutes.
  7. To prepare the onions, add a dash of oil to a hot frying pan and add the peeled onions. To cook them, shake the pan occasionally over the heat until the onions are nicely coloured. Add 10g of butter, followed by the garlic and thyme. Add the CHEF® All Natural Chicken Stock and then reduce it, shaking the pan to coat the onions in the stock. By the time the stock has cooked down, the onions should be cooked through. Pass the sauce through a piece of muslin cloth, into a clean saucepan and season to taste.
  8. Add the pancetta to a hot pan with a 1 tb.sp oil and colour nicely, tossing until it is a golden brown on all sides. Add the girolles and cook these until golden, then add the trompettes and cook down. Sprinkle with the parsley and pepper. Finally add the silverskin onions to complete the garnish.
  9. Season the onglet and place on a hot grill. Occasionally brush it with the clarified butter. Grill both sides for about 3-4 minutes until medium rare, then remove from the grill and rest for 2 minutes in a warm place.
  10. To serve, place a spoonful of potato purée on a plate, slice the onglet and place over the top of the purée. Place a generous spoonful of the mushroom and mushroom mixture over the top and finish with a CHEF® Red Wine Sauce.
