Instructions
  1. For the croquette filling, pour the chicken stock into a small saucepan and season with salt. Add the chicken thighs, bring to a simmer and poach for 12–14 minutes until the chicken is just cooked. Leave to cool in the liquid. Once cool, remove the chicken and chop into small pieces. Reserve the stock for the béchamel
  2. Make a roux with the butter and flour, stirring all the time, and gradually add the stock until a thick béchamel is achieved. Add the Parmesan, anchovies and garlic, then transfer to a blender and blitz until smooth. Fold through the parsley and chopped chicken and season to taste with salt
  3. Transfer the mix to a tray and place in the fridge until set and firm. When the mixture is set, divide into 12 balls and retain in the fridge
  4. To make the Caesar dressing, blend the egg, vinegar and the mustard until smooth. Add the anchovy, then slowly add the olive oil in a steady stream while whisking, as if you were making a mayonnaise
  5. Once emulsified add the finely grated Parmesan, Worcestershire sauce and adjust the consistency with a touch of warm water and lemon juice. The dressing should be a little loose
  6. Prepare three bowls for crumbing: one with flour, one with egg wash and one with breadcrumbs. Roll the croquettes through each bowl, ensuring that the croquettes are completely covered in the breadcrumbs. Store in a tray of breadcrumbs until needed
  7. Bring a large pan of lightly salted water to the boil and blanch the lettuce and spinach for 2 minutes. Drain well and squeeze out any excess water before transferring to a blender. Blitz until smooth and pass through a fine sieve. Chill in a bowl over ice until needed
  8. Preheat the vegetable oil in a deep saucepan or deep fryer to 180°C
  9. Once the oil is up to temperature, fry the croquettes for 2–3 minutes until golden
  10. To serve, swirl the lettuce purée around the bottom of the plate, add 3 croquettes per portion and a dot of Caesar dressing. Garnish with lettuce leaves, shaved Parmesan, cress and anchovies

Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 230˚C.
  2. Leaving the cauliflower whole, remove the outer leaves and place it on an oven tray. Drizzle with olive oil and a hefty sprinkle of sea salt and bake for 45 minutes. The top will colour and give the cauliflower the most amazing nutty flavour. Once cooked, leave the cauliflower to cool, then break it down into small florets.
  3. Meanwhile, to pickle the grapes, heat a large heavy-based frying pan over high heat until smoking hot. Throw in the grapes and shake them in the pan for about 10 seconds or until blistered and scorched. Add the vinegar and continue to shake the grapes around the pan for another 5 -10 seconds. Pour the grapes and the liquid into a bowl and cover them with olive oil.
  4. To make the dressing, whisk together the red wine vinegar, honey, mustard, salt and pepper. Slowly drizzle in the vegetable oil and continue to whisk until emulsified.
  5. To assemble the salad, combine the cauliflower florets, shallots, parsley, hazelnuts and pickled grapes in a large mixing bowl. Splash in a couple of tablespoons of the dressing and season to taste with salt and pepper. Gently mix the salad, then place in a serving bowl and give it a light dusting with sumac to finish.

Instructions
  1. To begin, make the beetroot purée by boiling the beetroots for 30 minutes, or until soft. Then blend them with the oil and salt in a food processor. Pass through a sieve until you obtain a smooth, velvety sauce
  2. To make the pesto, blend all the ingredients together to obtain a thick consistency and transfer to a squeezy bottle
  3. In a medium bowl, mix the boiled, mashed potatoes with a pinch of salt, the potato flour and ¾ of the beetroot puree
  4. Lightly dust a table with flour and roll the mixture into long sausages. Cut out pieces of gnocchi weighing about 20g
  5. Boil the gnocchi in salted boiling water. Once they rise to the surface, drain and mix with a little butter to stop the gnocchi from sticking
  6. Pipe a little pesto into each gnocchi
  7. Mix the ricotta cheese with the salt and warm milk in a blender. Pass through a sieve
  8. To serve, pour some large drops of ricotta sauce and beetroot purée on a serving plate. Place the gnocchi between the sauces and decorate with some mint

Instructions
  1. Sprinkle half the salt in the bottom of a tray and add the porky, skin-side down. Add the rest of the salt on top and rub in well. Cover with clingfilm and place in the fridge for 12 hours
  2. Heat the oven to 80°C. Wash, dry and then wrap in cling film and then tin foil. Roast for 12 hours. Keep the juices for the Port jus; you will need 950ml
  3. Remove from the oven, place another tray on top of the belly and weight down. Leave in the fridge for 24 hours. Remove the tin foil and the cling film and cut into portions
  4. Brown the belly on all sides in a frying pan. Then place in a warm oven at 150°C
  5. Place the apples in a saucepan with a pinch salt, sugar and chicken stock and bring to a simmer. When soft, liquidise and push through a sieve. Season, adding a knob of butter. Set aside
  6. Heat the oven to 160°C. Wrap the garlic cloves in a large sheet of tin foil, douse with the grapeseed oil and season
  7. Wrap into a parcel and slowly roast for 1 ½ hours. Take out and peel the cloves. Put into a blender with the cream, butter and balsamic. Blitz to a fine purée, sieve if desired and keep until needed
  8. Reduce the stock by two thirds. Keep tasting; you want a full flavoured jus. Pass through a sieve into another pan. Reduce the white port until syrupy, then add the port to the jus
  9. To plate warm all the components separately and serve with the pork belly

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Heat a large fry pan over medium-low heat and add butter. Stir in pear slices, salt, cinnamon and brown sugar, tossing well to coat.
  3. Cook for 8-10 minutes until pears are super ‘caramely’ and soft.
  4. In a separate small pan, add pecans and toast over low heat for about 5 minutes, just until fragrant. Set aside.

  6. Place the pan the second highest oven rack and check after 1-2 minutes, and once the cheese is golden and bubbly on top, remove it.
  7. Cover the feta with the pears (and any sauce/juice in the pan), the pecans and the honey. Serve immediately with lavish, crackers, fruit or vegetables.
