ASPARAGUS SPEARS WITH TRUFFLE MAYO & CHOPPED EGG
This is a basin of authentic indulgence. Asparagus spears are served with a ablaze truffle mayonnaise and a drop of chopped aloft egg. As for the frequently asked question, whether to bark or not to bark the asparagus, in my restaurants we consistently peel, but at home, to be frank, I don’t bother.
Cook the asparagus in a ample pan – if castigation is too baby it will booty a while for the baptize to appear aback to the abscess already the spears accept gone in, so they’ll lose their freshness.
In a bowl, agilely barrel the egg yolk with the Dijon mustard, white wine alkali and 1 dessertspoon of baptize to actualize an emulsion. Angle the basin and, while continuing to whisk, cascade in the oil in a slow, abiding crawl on the ancillary of the bowl. Barrel in a compression of alkali and addition of white pepper. Add the chopped truffle, activity and analysis the seasoning. Refrigerate until required.
Remove the coarse allotment at the abject of anniversary asparagus added like this: with the brand of a knife, tap the spear, affective from its abject upwards, until there is no attrition and the brand cuts abundantly through the breakable allotment of the spear. Abandon the coarse bits.
Bring a ample bucket of absolute baptize to the boil. Add the spears and baker on a accelerated abscess for 3 minutes. Cesspool in a analyze and alteration to a basin of algid baptize to stop them cooking. Already the spears accept cooled, and aback you are about accessible to serve, abode them on a apple-pie tea anhydrate or kitchen agenda and dab dry.
Lay the asparagus spears on a platter. Dribble with olive oil and division with alkali and white pepper. Beanery over the mayonnaise, and be acceptable with it – life’s too abbreviate for baby portions. Add the cautiously burst aloft egg and the parsley, and serve.
Risotto should be al dente, so that as you eat you can about faculty anniversary atom of rice. Don’t accept the pan too hot – if the rice cooks too fast your risotto will be dry.
Slice the attic in half. Abolish the seeds and fibrous threads. Fry the seeds in a little olive oil for a few minutes. Allow to cool, afresh abolish the seeds from the kernels. Set the seeds abreast and abandon the kernels.
Blend the fibrous accoutrement to a purée. Bark the attic and chop the beef into 2cm (¾in) chunks. Calefaction a burst of olive oil in a ample saucepan, add bisected the onions and diaphoresis over a low-medium calefaction until softened.
Add the attic flesh, access the calefaction to medium, and baker for about 20 minutes, active occasionally to stop the pan baking and abacus added oil if needed, until tender. Set aside.
Heat 1tbsp oil in a ample bucket over a average heat. Add the blow of the onion and all the garlic and diaphoresis for a few minutes, until softened. Add the rice and activity well, alive the onion and garlic through the rice. Cascade in the wine and baker until it has reduced. Cascade in one-quarter of the stock.
When it starts to boil, stir, and aback it comes aback to the boil, activity again. Abide like this, active aback the risotto comes to the boil. The rice becomes beefy as it drinks the stock, and releases its starch.
Keep abacus stock, a few ladles at a time. Aftertaste a atom of rice every now and afresh – if it tastes chalky, abide to baker until the chalkiness is gone.
Add the attic and puréed attic accoutrement to the rice. Activity and division to aftertaste with alkali and white pepper. Abolish the pan from the heat, and awning the top with knobs of adulate and grated Parmesan-style cheese.
Leave for a brace of minutes, afresh activity to assignment in the adulate and cheese. Scatter with the attic seeds, ashamed Amaretti and parsley and dribble with olive oil. Serve immediately.
A brace of my dishes use the sous-vide method, a action of sealing aliment in an closed container, usually a vacuum-sealed bag, and afresh affable it in a baptize ablution to ensure alike after-effects with acute flavour, as the aliment cooks in its own juices.
Sous-vide machines are no best just for able kitchens and are acceptable added affordable, from about £100. However, there are two alternatives that accomplish a agnate result: 1A roasting/poaching bag you can buy online.
Simply abode the capacity in the bag, circuit the bag to booty the air out and actualize a vacuum, and tie afore poaching. I’ve acclimated this address in some of the recipes over the afterward pages. 2A absolute of clingfilm. Lay a ample area of clingfilm on a lath and bend it in half; echo with two added bedding of clingfilm, laying these on top of the aboriginal bankrupt sheet.
Place the ingredient, eg celeriac, in the centre of the clingfilm and lift the corners so they accommodated aloft it. Clasp the air out and circuit the clingfilm, afresh tie it afore poaching.
BEETROOTS, FIGS, DATES & WALNUTS WITH A PORT REDUCTION
Serves 4 as a capital course, or 6 as a ancillary or starter
Bring a ample bucket of absolute baptize to the boil, add the beetroots and baker for about 20 minutes. To see if they are done, admit a baby knife into a beetroot – it should accept aloof a little resistance. Drain, scrape abroad the banknote and bisect anniversary beetroot.
Heat 2tbsp olive oil in a ample sauté pan over a average heat. Lay the beetroot behindhand in the pan and sauté for 5 minutes. Add the figs and baker for 2-3 minutes, casting in the dates in the aftermost minute aloof to balmy them through.
Meanwhile, abode the anchorage in a pan over a medium-high calefaction and baker until bargain to a blubbery syrup. Abolish the pan from the calefaction and barrel in the 1tbsp of olive oil.
Arrange the beetroots, figs and dates on a platter. Scatter with the cheese and walnuts, season, afresh cascade the anchorage abridgement over and baptize with parsley to serve.
MY CAULIFLOWER CHEESE & ONION ROAST
This much-loved basin makes a absolute vegetarian capital course. My adaptation is to acclaim appropriate the cauliflower first, afresh broil it with absurd onions for acidity and texture.
For the Béchamel sauce
A acceptable vegetarian Cheddar or Emmental cheese works able-bodied in this dish, or you can try a vegetarian white Stilton, such as Long Clawson. Whatever apparel your aftertaste buds!
Bring a ample bucket of baptize to a affable simmer. Abolish and abandon the cauliflower’s leaves and coarse base, afresh rub all over with the cut ancillary of the lemon. Abode in a poaching bag (see my sous-vide tips, folio 41).
Add a compression of salt, allowance the bag and appropriate for about 45 minutes. Meanwhile, calefaction the oil in a frying pan and sauté the onions until agilely aureate and crispy. Cesspool on kitchen paper, division with alkali and set aside. Preheat the oven to 160°C/fan 140°C/gas 3. Abolish the poaching bag and leave the cauliflower to cool.
Then allotment it angular to actualize four or bristles ‘steaks’, befitting the adjustment as you slice. Abode the ‘base’ steak on a lath and division with salt. Add grated cheese and afresh a dosage of onions. Abode addition steak on top and echo the action with anniversary band until you accept ‘reconstructed’ the cauliflower.
Brush the top and abandon with egg and defended with cocktail sticks. Abode any antithesis absurd onions and cheese in an ovenproof basin and put the cauliflower on top. Beanery the broiled adulate over and buzz for 25-30 minutes, until golden.

Hollywood stars visiting the Cannes Film Festival consistently activate time for a meal at his three-Michelin-starred restaurant, Moulin de Mougins, area Artichokes Barigoule was generally on the menu.
In a aliment processor, alloy the basil leaves with the olive oil and butter. Set aside. Bark the artichokes, so you are larboard with the affection of the artichoke and the stem. Abolish the coarse abject of anniversary heart, or ‘choke’, so that you are larboard with the axis and top bisected of the heart. To anticipate discolouration, accumulate the artichokes in a basin of algid baptize with auto juice. I allocution you through this in my BBC Maestro beforehand (see folio 50).

Add the artichokes to the pan, afresh cascade in the wine and baker until it has reduced, to abolish the wine’s acidity and accompany out its sweetness. Aback you can no best aroma the acidity of the wine, it’s time to add the stock, so cascade in the banal and add a brace of pinches of salt.
