Ceviche with Leche de tigre

Preparation Time: 20 mins


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small stick celery
  • 1 long fresh red chilli
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1cm piece fresh ginger
  • ½ bunch coriander
  • juice of 2 lemons
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 200g (7oz) sashimi grade kingfish fillet, cut into 1cm dice
  • ½ Spanish onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 ice cube
  • 2 shots of vodka
  • Poached sweet potato
  • 200ml (6½fl oz) water
  • 200g (7oz) caster sugar
  • 1 star anise
  • 1 sweet potato (250g/8oz), peeled, cut into 1cm dice
  • juice of 1 lime


To make poached sweet potato, stir water, sugar and star anise in a small saucepan, over low heat, until sugar is dissolved. Add potato. Boil gently until potato is just tender. Drain. Place in a bowl. Drizzle with lime juice.

Meanwhile, place oil, celery, chilli, garlic, ginger, coriander and half the lemon and lime juice in a small processor. Process until smooth. Place in a serving bowl. Add fish, onion and ice cube. Stand for 4 minutes—this allows the acid from the citrus juice to cook the protein in the fish.

Place a shot of vodka in each shot glass. Add a splash of the cloudy citrus juice from the fish.

Serve ceviche with sweet potato and vodka shot.

  • 6 Tbsp whole butter


Procedure for Filling:
Heat oil over medium flame and sauté onions until slightly browned and very tender. Take off the heat, stir in the garlic well.

Return pan to heat and cook, stirring for 1 minute (garlic should colour a little). Add cabbage/Iceberg and cook for 1 minute, tossing well.

Add salt and toss well again. Cook until cabbage has lost its liquid and it has evaporated. Stir in all other ingredients and cook, stirring occasionally until everything is completely heated through, about 5 minutes and remove to a bowl and chill.

Combine all ingredients except peppercorns and butter in a thick bottom, non reactive pan and bring to a boil, stirring to avoid scorching, for 20 minutes. Stir in freshly crushed peppercorns off the heat, cover and let sit 20 minutes. Push through fine strainer and cool.

Procedure for Stuffing Wontons:
Layout 8 wonton skins on a cutting board and place a mound (1/8) of the filling on each near the center. Brush two adjacent edges of the wonton skins with water and fold the pasta diagonally over the filling and seal firmly. with a pasta crimper, cut a round shape just inside the sealed edges. Repeat.

Procedure for Cooking Wontons:
In a large sauté pan, heat 1/4 cup sesame oil. When hot, lay the stuffed pasta in a single layer (or do half at a time in 2 batches) and sear the bottom for about a minute.
Turn each over and sear the other side. Add the sauce and cook for about 2 minutes.
Add the 6 Tbsp whole butter from the sauce recipe and swirl pan so butter dissolves evenly. Divide the pasta, 2 to a plate and pour over sauce.
Garnish with crispy fried leek julienne.


Prawn Broth with Prawn and Cauliflower Dumplings


  • 250g green prawns
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 small carrot
  • 1 bulb of fennel
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 ripe tomato
  • 3 stalks parsley
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 Star anise
  • 3 peppercorns
  • Finely grated zest of 1/2 an orange
  • 1/2 teaspoon castor sugar
  • Salt
  • Extra virgin olive oil


  • 1 shallot
  • 50g cauliflower
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 egg white
  • 70 - 100 ml cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt


Peel prawns, saving meat for dumplings and keeping shells and heads for broth.
To make the broth, peel and roughly dice onion and carrot. Roughly chop the fennel. Heat the olive oil over a moderate flame in a large heavy-based saucepan, then sauté onion until lightly caramelised, stirring regularly.

Whiz fennel, carrot, prawn shells and peeled garlic with egg whites in a food processor for a couple of minutes to form a coarse paste. Roughly chop tomatoes and add to onion with paste. Pour in 1 litre of water, then add herbs, peppercorns, star anise, orange zest and sugar. Bring to a boil, then lower heat and simmer for 30 minutes. Do not stir!

Remove raft and gently ladle broth through a fine meshed strainer lined with muslin (you can use a clean tea-towel), then season to taste with salt.

To make the dumplings:

Trim and finely slice spring onion and break cauliflower into florets 1-2cm pcs. Heat a little prawn broth (or water if you are doing at the same time) and blanch cauliflower for a minute or so until just tender, then remove to drain and cool.

Whiz garlic, egg white and three quarters of the reserved prawn meat in a food processor for several minutes to form a paste, then tip into a bowl and fold in cream (just enough to bind the mix together without making it too wet), salt and spring onion.

Roughly chop remaining prawn meat and add to dumpling mixture with drained cauliflower.
Just before serving bring broth to a boil over a high flame. When hot, ladle a cup of broth into a smaller pan over a low flame.

Using 2 teaspoons, place scoops (quenelles) of the dumpling mixture into the smaller pan. Simmer dumplings gently for 3 minutes until firm and cooked.

Then divide them between warmed bowls using a slotted spoon. Ensure the main broth is boiling before ladling it over the dumplings, then drizzle with a little extra virgin olive oil and serve. Garnish with a freshly chopped chilli and shallot.

Cured Sardines & Chicory Salad

Serves: 4 | Preparation Time: 30 min


  • 1/4 cup sea salt
  • 2 cups white-wine vinegar
  • 1 dozen sardines, scaled and filleted (ask your fishmonger to do it for you if you like)
  • 1 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped fine
  • 1 lemons, zested, plus juice
  • 1 bunch parsley, finely chopped
  • 1/2 tablespoons ground white pepper
  • 1/2 bunch  chicory
  • 1 blood orange, segmented


To cure the sardines: Pour salt into one medium bowl, vinegar into another. Coat the sardines with salt and let them sit on a large plate or tray for 10 minutes. Remove any excess salt from sardines and dip them in the vinegar,then lay them on another large plate for 15 minutes.

For the marinade: In a medium casserole dish or bowl, combine the olive oil, garlic, lemon zest, half the lemon juice, parsley, and white pepper.

Add the sardines to the marinade so that they’re completely covered. Cover the dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 24 hours.

Remove from refrigerator, and on a serving platter, combine the cured sardines with chicory and blood-orange segments.

Dress the salad with remaining lemon juice, 1 tablespoon of the marinade, and a drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil, and season with salt and white pepper.

Serve with warm crusty bread. (I like to warm the sardines with the bread and then add to the salad).


Slow Roasted Balsamic Tomatoes with Baby Leeks and Basil

Serves: 2 | Preparation Time: 20 min


  • 3 tomatoes
  • 1 clove of garlic, peeled and finely sliced
  • 10 leaves of fresh Thai basil, leaves picked and torn up
  • Bay leaves
  • 4-5 baby leeks, trimmed and washed
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 50ml/7fl oz cheap balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil


Score the tops of the tomatoes with a cross. Take an earthenware dish that the tomatoes will fit snugly into, and sprinkle the garlic and basil all over the bottom of it.

Stand the tomatoes next to each other in the tray, on top of the garlic and basil, then push the bay leaves well into the scores in the tomatoes and season well.

Lay the leeks on a board and sprinkle generously with salt and pepper. Using a rolling pin, press down on top of the leeks to really squeeze the seasoning into them. This will also loosen their texture.

Cut the leeks into about three and place around the tomatoes. Pour over the balsamic vinegar, drizzle over the olive oil, and bake in the preheated 180 deg oven for an hour. Before serving, remove the bay leaves. 

Try this: These tomatoes are great served as a vegetable dish, or as part of a warm salad. Also good as a base for soup, puréed to make a sauce or served over pasta.

Cheddar and Jalapeño Biscuits

Serves: 8 | Preparation Time: 25


1 1/3 cups (175g) all-purpose flour
1/4 cup (45g) polenta or fine milled corn meal
3 tablespoons (45g) sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
Pinch cayenne pepper
6 ounces (1 1/2 cups packed, 170g) shredded sharp cheddar cheese, divided (1 1/4 cup and 1/4 cup)
2 tablespoons diced fresh jalapeños (more or less to taste)
3/4 cup + 2 tablespoons heavy cream (200ml), plus extra for brushing


Preheat oven to 220°C. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, polenta, salt, sugar, cayenne, and baking powder. Stir in 1 1/4 cups of the grated cheddar cheese and the diced jalapeños.

Make a well in the centreof the flour mixture. Pour the cream into the centre of the well and your (clean) hands to gently bring together the ingredients. If you need to add a bit more cream then do so a tiny trickle at a time. You just want everything to get wet enough so that the dough will be sticky and clumpy.

Turn the dough out onto a surface lightly dusted with flour. Knead the dough just a few times - maybe only three or four pushes. You just want it to come together. (Over-kneading will result in firmer, denser biscuits.)

Form the dough into a disc about 3/4-inch to an inch thick. Use a biscuit cutter (or a small juice glass) to cut round biscuit shapes out of the disk. Combine the leftover dough and keep forming small round biscuit shapes until the dough is used up.

Place on a lined baking sheet, with at least an inch or two between the biscuits. Brush the tops of the biscuits with a little more cream. Top the biscuits with a sprinkle of the remaining cheese.

Bake at 220°C for 11-12 minutes or until golden and the cheese is nicely melted.

Seared wagyu sirloin on truffled jerusalem artichoke puree

Serves: 4 | Preparation Time: 45 min


For the chrain

  • 1 beetroot
  • 4 tbsp freshly grated horseradish if available
  • 2 tbsp cider vinegar

For the truffled Jerusalem artichoke puree

  • 500 g jerusalem artichokes, peeled and sliced 1cm thick
  • 250 ml double cream
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 tsp truffle oil

For the crispy curry leaves

  • vegetable oil, for deep-frying
  • 1 handfuls curry leaves, from the stem

For the beef

  • 250-300g  Wagyu beef sirloin, trimmed of excess fat, at room temperature
  • 1 tbsp grapeseed oil


For the chrain: preheat the oven to 180C/gas 4. Wrap the beetroot in foil and bake until cooked through - you will be able to insert a skewer through it. Remove from the foil and place in a bowl of iced water, then peel the skin off. Roughly chop it, then puree it in a food processor together with the horseradish and vinegar. Season with salt. 
For the truffled Jerusalem artichoke puree: place the artichokes in a pan with the cream and bay leaf, add a little salt and cover with water by 2cm. Bring to the boil, then cook over a moderate heat until the artichokes are cooked and the liquid has gone below the level of them. Remove the bay leaf, strain the liquid into a bowl, then purée them in a small food processor, adding some of the cooking liquid to thin it out. Mix in the truffle oil and season well. Keep warm. 
For the crispy curry leaves: heat the vegetable oil in a deep-fat fryer or pan to 180C. Deep-fry the curry leaves until crisp, then drain on kitchen paper. 
For the beef: depending on the beef, you may prefer to cook it in one piece and then slice it, or you may prefer to cook individual portions. Heat a heavy-based pan. Rub the oil all over the beef and season generously with sea salt. Cook the beef in the pan for 1 minute over quite a high heat. Turn the beef over and brown on all sides, cooking it to medium rare at the most. Leave to rest in a warm place for 5 minutes. 
To serve, dollop the artichoke puree onto four warmed plates. Slice the beef and lay on top, place a little chrain to the side, then scatter with the curry leaves.
