Instructions
  1. Finely chop (or crumble) the chorizo sausage - you might need to peel the skin off first. Place the chorizo crumb in a cold non stick pan and set over a medium heat. Allow to cook until the chorizo has released its oils and crisped a little. You may n need to add some oil to help it along. Remove from heat and allow too cool.
  2. Remove the oysters from their shells. Wash the shells in hot water, then pat dry. Replace the oysters and cover with a damp cloth in the refrigerator.
  3. Put the tomato, shallots, chilli and coriander in a bowl and mix together well. Stir in the lime juice, then season to taste with salt and pepper.
  4. Put a teaspoon or so of the chorizo crumb on each oyster and top with a teaspoon of salsa.

Instructions
  1. First, make the dressing. In a small bowl or jug, whisk the oil, orange zest and juice lightly, then add the pine nuts and set aside.
  2. Hold the asparagus at the base and just below the tip, then snap in two – you will feel a natural breaking point where the asparagus becomes a little woody. Save the woody bases for soups or stocks.
  3. Shred four spears of asparagus using a mandolin (or slice lengthways with a vegetable peeler). Repeat the process with the cooked beetroot. Put the shaved asparagus in a bowl of cold water and set side.
  4. Heat a frying pan or skillet over a high heat until hot. Coat the remaining six whole pieces of asparagus with the oil and place in the hot pan, moving them around in the pan, and season with a few pinches of sea salt. Allow the asparagus to brown, then remove, draining off any excess oil.
  5. Put the roasted asparagus on the plate, then add dollops of the curd. Drain the raw asparagus, then layer it over the curd with the slices of cooked beetroot. Stir the dressing and drizzle over the dish. Add some baby salad leaves to decorate, if you like.

Instructions
  1. Heat the butter and oil in a frying pan. Add the onion and fry until soft. Stir in the garlic and mushrooms, season and cook for 5 mins until the mushrooms are soft. Stir in the parsley and cream. Remove from the heat and allow to cool.
  2. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Grease a 6-hole muffin tin with butter, then line each hole with a long thin strip of baking parchment. Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured surface and stamp out 6 x 10 cm circles. Press a circle into each hole to line. Roll out the remaining pastry (you may need to re-roll trimmings) and stamp out 6 x 8cm circles.
  3. Divide the mushroom mix between the pies. Brush the pastry edges with a little egg, top each with a pastry lid and carefully press the pastry edges together to seal.
  4. Brush with the remaining egg and sprinkle with caraway seeds. Bake for 25-30 mins until golden. Allow to cool in the tin slightly before serving, or cool on a wire rack and keep in airtight containers for up to 1 day. Reheat before serving.
