  1. Roast Leg of Lamb with Rosemary and Garlic

    Leave a Comment

    BBQ’d bone-in leg of lamb with rosemary and garlic is delicious. It’s a family favourite and ideal for that big occasion any time of year.

    There is something very special about cooking meats over charcoal instead of an oven that will take your meal to a whole new level.

    The marinade is simple to make and full of flavour. All you need is rapeseed oil, a few cloves of garlic roughly chopped and a few sprigs of fresh rosemary.

    Ingredients

    • bone-in leg of lamb
    • 2 tbs chopped fresh rosemary
    • 5 cloves garlic, peeled and roughly chopped
    • 200ml rapeseed oil

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Step by step guide:

    1)   In a bowl combine the oil, garlic and rosemary.

    2)   With a sharp knife, slice slits all over the leg of lamb and rub the mixture all over. Place the lamb in the fridge for at least 4 hours or overnight.

    3)   Remove the lamb from the fridge two hours before cooking to get it up to room temperature.

    4)   Set your bbq up for indirect cooking and make sure that the cooking temperature is around 180 degrees C. You can cook this on any charcoal or gas bbq as long as it has a lid.

    5)   Place the marinaded lamb in a Proware-Kitchen roasting pan. To keep the meat off the metal surface you can place a few carrots underneath.

    6) Add the pan to the bbq and close the lid. It’s that simple. I’m a big fan of cooking to temperature and not to time. I use a meat probe throughout the cook so that I know the cooking temperature.

    7)   The leg of lamb is ready once it’s hit an internal temperature between 56 – 66 Degrees C. If you like your lamb medium rare take it off the heat at around 56 Degrees C and if you like it medium take it off at 66 Degrees C.

    8)   Remove the lamb from the bbq, cover with foil and let it rest for thirty minutes before carving. It’s going to be delicious.

    Serve with your favourite vegetables. This is a delicious roast dinner.

  3. Vanilla rice pudding, pistachio honeycomb & glazed summer fruits by Josh Angus

    Leave a Comment

    Looking for a summery pud for your next date night dinner, sunday lunch, or dinner party? Look no further! Michelin Starred Hide Restaurant‘s Head Chef Josh Angus has created a super light and completely delicious dessert for you.

    Equipment

    Copper Tri-Ply 18cm Saucepan (with lid)

    Copper Tri-Ply 12cm Mini Frying Pan (to serve)

    Ingredients (Serves 5)

    (For the Rice Pudding)

    • 1 vanilla pod
    • 35g sugar (to taste)
    • 150g pudding rice
    • 900g milk
    • 165 double cream
    • 4 figs halved
    • 2 peaches quartered
    • Red wine
    • 75g sugar
    • 75g water

    (For the Honeycomb)

    • butter, for the tin
    • 200g caster sugar
    • 5 tbsp golden syrup
    • 2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
    • 50g chopped pistachios
    • 20g chopped pistachios for serving

    Method

    Make the Honeycomb first so it can rest…

    1. Butter a 20cm square tin. Stir the caster sugar and golden syrup together in a deep saucepan over a gentle heat until the sugar has melted. Try not to let the mixture bubble until the sugar grains have disappeared.
    2. Once completely melted, turn up the heat a little and simmer until you have an amber coloured caramel (this won’t take long) add your pistachios at this point, then as quickly as you can, turn off the heat, tip in the bicarbonate of soda and beat in with a wooden spoon until it has all disappeared and the mixture is foaming. Scrape into the tin immediately – be careful, the mixture will be very hot.
    3. The mixture will continue bubbling in the tin, simply leave it and in about 1 hr-1 hr 30 mins the honeycomb will be hard and ready to crumble or snap into chunks.

    For the Rice Pudding…

    1. Place the milk in a medium saucepan and add the rice and sugar. Split the vanilla pod lengthways with a sharp knife, scrape out the seeds and add both the pod and the seeds to the pan. Bring to the boil, then reduce to a simmer and cook gently with a lid on, stirring frequently, for 25-30 minutes or until the rice has absorbed most of the milk & cooked through. Remove the vanilla pod but save for presentation and stir in the cream. The rice  should be glossy now & fall off a spoon; leave to cool.
    2. Cut the figs in half & ripe peaches in to quarters, bring to boil the sugar & water in a frying pan to make stock syrup, once the sugar has dissolved add the peaches on a medium heat & cook for 1 minute either side just to soften the peach & glaze them up with stock syrup remove from pan.
    3. Add the figs & do the same but this time add two splashes of red wine & reduce to a syrup consistency. The figs & peaches should be slightly soft but hold their shape & not messy!
    4. To serve have the cooled  rice pudding on the bottom with the glazed fruit on top, sprinkle with chunks of honeycomb & chopped pistachios. Then drizzle with the red wine syrup.

     

    What a treat! We can’t thank Josh enough for this summer sensation. Check out his other recipes for us here.

    Equipment

    Large Walnut Chopping Board

    Stainless Steel Tri-Ply 35cm Roasting Pan

    Copper Tri-Ply 10cm Mini Casserole Pans

    Ingredients

    Serves 4

    • 1 x Spanish frozen octopus 3-4kg (defrosted)
    • 1 carrot (roughly chopped)
    • 1 leek (roughly chopped)
    • 1 bulb garlic (roughly chopped)

    • Salt to taste
    • 500g new potatoes
    • 5 cloves garlic finely chopped
    • 15g Rosemary chopped
    • Salt to taste

    Method

    1. Turn the oven on 170c full fan, once the octopus is fully defrosted. Give the octopus a rinse under the sink. Then cut the octopus in half having 4 tentacles either side, place in the cast iron dish with the roughly chopped vegetables & a splash of white wine. (optional)
    2. Cover with greaseproof & foil, then put in the oven & cook for 2 to 3 hours until the octopus is completely cooked through & not chewy! A knife should easily go through the octopus.
    3. The meantime chop the new potatoes in half or quarters if large, mix in a bowl with olive oil, salt, chopped rosemary & chopped garlic.
    4. Roast potatoes in the oven for 35mins same temperature as octopus until really crispy & cooked through. Mix time to time in the oven so they become really crispy.
    5. For the salad wash the chickpeas under cold running water & mix with chopped feta, tomatoes, broad beans & cucumber. Dress the salad with olive oil, vinegar, lemon juice & salt to taste.
    6. Once the octopus is cooked & rested for 20 minutes, take each tentacle & detach them from the head individually, then grill them in hot pan with splash of olive oil to get crispy on the outside, 2 minutes on each side will be enough.
    7. Serve immediately with the hot crispy potatoes & cold Greek salad. Also could serve with aioli or romesco sauce as a dip.

    We can’t get enough of this recipe, perfect for a summer dinner party with friends who love seafood. Thanks Josh!
