Ingredients

A 2-2.5kg shoulder of lamb
3 tbsp olive oil
3 fat cloves of garlic, chopped
A large onion, roughly chopped
Half a bottle of reasonable red wine
2 cooking chorizo sausages, or half a chorizo ring, sliced
2 pints of chicken stock (from cube is fine)
2 tbsp brown sugar
Salt and pepper
Pouring honey

Method

  1. Heat the oven to 170°C.
  2. Meanwhile heat a deep roasting tin big enough to take the whole shoulder of lamb, on the stove top. Pour in the olive oil. Season the lamb shoulder liberally with salt and pepper, and brown on all sides. This is a lengthy job and will require you to stand over it, tipping the piece of meat this way and that with tongs to make sure it’s as well browned as possible. Don’t be too obsessive. Just some colour is good. When done, remove from the roasting tin to a plate.
  3. Add the onion and the chorizo and cook until it’s caramelised, and then the garlic and cook for a minute more.
  4. Deglaze with the red wine, scraping away at any bits on the bottom. Boil on a high heat for two minutes to burn off the alcohol.
  5. Top up with the chicken stock, throw in the brown sugar and stir.
  6. Return the lamb shoulder to the pan. The liquor should at least cover it by half. If it’s a particularly square, deep piece, add another pint of stock.
  7. Cover the whole tin with foil and place in the oven for four hours.
  8. Check it’s cooked by sticking two forks into the meat and pulling them apart. The meat should come away easily. If not return to the oven for another half an hour.
  9. Carefully strain the liquor into a pan, and begin to reduce over a moderate heat. Reduce by two thirds. Adjust seasoning to taste. You now have your gravy. Indeed, you’ll have far too much. I suggest you freeze some for another day and another dish.
  10. Meanwhile – drizzle the lamb with the runny honey. Turn the oven on to grill, and return the meat to the oven, basting with any honey that dribbles off every five minutes. After ten minutes it should be dark and sticky.
  11. Sprinkle with flaky sea salt and rest for a good 20 minutes.

  3. Line the pastry with bling film and bake blind with rice for 25 minutes. Remove the rice and cling film, return it to the oven and cook for a further 10 minutes to ensure the pastry is cooked through and dried out. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool.

  5. Line the tart case with a layer of fresh raspberry jam
  6. To make the filling, melt the butter in a saucepan over a medium heat until it foams and turns nut brown. Add the syrup, take the pan off the heat and whisk to combine. Put the bread crumbs in a medium bowl and add the butter and syrup mixture.
  7. Whisk in the cream, 2 eggs and 1 egg yolk and leave to cool for 10-15 minutes. Once cooled, pour the filling into the cooled tart case and bake for 20 minutes until the tart is just set – it should still have a wobble in the center.

Ingredients

12 good-quality dried figs
200ml (7fl oz/scant 1 cup) port (any type will do)
4 large duck legs
1 tbsp plain (all-purpose) flour
4 tbsp sunflower oil
10g (¼oz/¾ tbsp) unsalted butter
2 tbsp chopped mint leaves, stalks reserved
25g (scant 1oz/2 tbsp) caster (superfine) sugar
75ml (2½fl oz/1⁄3 cup) white balsamic vinegar
800ml (28fl oz/3½ cups) brown chicken stock
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Method

  1. The day before, put the figs in a bowl with the port. Cover with clingfilm (plastic wrap) and put in the fridge to marinate overnight. The next day, preheat the oven to 170°C (325°F/Gas 3).
  2. Season the duck legs with salt and pepper, then dip them in the flour. Shake of any excess flour. Put the oil in a large lidded flameproof and ovenproof casserole dish (Dutch oven) over a medium heat. When the oil is hot, add the duck legs and cook for 5 minutes on each side until golden. Remove with a slotted spoon to a plate and set aside.
  3. Pour off the excess oil from the casserole dish (Dutch oven) and reduce the heat. Add the butter, mint stalks, sugar and balsamic vinegar. Cook over a low heat for 4–5 minutes until lightly caramelized.
  4. Return the duck legs to the casserole dish (Dutch oven). Remove the figs from the port with a slotted spoon and pour the port over the duck legs. Add the chicken stock and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer and tuck in the marinated figs. Cover with a lid and transfer to the preheated oven. Braise for 2–2½ hours, or until the duck is tender. Add a little more stock if it starts to dry out.
  5. Carefully remove the duck legs and figs with a slotted spoon and divide between the serving plates. Strain the cooking sauce through a fine sieve (strainer) into a small pan and bring to the boil. Add the chopped mint leaves, pour over the duck legs and serve immediately.
