 CELERIAC MASH, CAVOLO NERO, BUTTERED CHANTERELLES WITH BLACK PEPPER

IMG_7688-e1486065745855.jpg

Upon a recent trip to Lime Wood where we dined in their Angela Hartnett and Luke Holder restaurant, the vegetarian husband scoffed rigatoni with black cabbage, garlic and chilli; a dish so good that it even tempted me away from my saffron and red mullet risotto. So delicious was the rich green sauce the pasta arrived in, I felt I simply had to give it a go and recreate it at home. This sauce works well across a plethora of dishes. Pasta of course is an absolute must try with this beautiful sauce as is my celeriac mash, risotto or as a side to a perfect steak. The dark cavolo nero gives this dish an unrivalled earthiness. This is a meal best made for the cold days and long nights that winter brings.

PREPARATION TIME: 10 MINUTES | COOKING TIME: 40 MINUTES | FEEDS: 4

Ingredients:
Celeriac mash –
1 large celeriac – peeled and cubed
1 clove of garlic – left whole
30g butter
generous glug of olive oil
generous sprinkle of sea salt flakes
½ tsp all spice berries – ground to a powder
100ml crème fraiche

Cavolo Nero Sauce –
1 large bunch of cavolo nero (around 12-15 stems) – stalks removed
large knob of butter
1 garlic clove
sprinkle of sea salt flakes
several turns of freshly ground black pepper
sprinkle of white pepper
dash of vegetable stock
500g chanterelles
knob of butteR
½ clove of garlic – left whole
sprinkle of sea salt flakes
several turns of freshly ground black pepper

Garnish
Zest of 1 lemon
Drizzle of olive oil

Place the cubed celeriac with the garlic in a saucepan with both the olive oil, butter and seasoning | Allow to sauté with the lid on for 35 minutes until soft. Once cooked through add in the crème fraiche | then blitz until smooth and creamy

For the cavolo nero sauce first remove the stalks | roughly chop then sauté in a pan for around 3-4 minutes before blitzing until completely smootH | Taste and adjust seasoning accordingly

In a frying pan, add the knob of butter and heat until piping hot and bubbling | Add in the seasoning followed by the chanterelles and cook until golden and crisp

Serve on a large platter adding the celeriac mash followed by the cavolo nero sauce with a scattering of the chanterelles | Serve with a crusty loaF

3 x cream cheese pots 280g - in total 840g
1 tin pumpkin puree 350g
150g caster sugar
½ tsp vanilla paste
zest of 1 orange plus juice of half the orange
½ tsp nutmeg
½ heaped tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
6 large free-range eggs
2 heaped tbsp plain flour

Caramel sauce:
270g caster sugar
150ml double cream
50g butter
½ fresh nutmeg grated
3tbsp spiced stem ginger plus a good glug of the syrup- ginger finely diced

Instructions
Preheat the oven to 170 degrees Celsius.
Begin by making your biscuit base. Melt your butter and set to one side. Blitz
your biscuits to a fine crumb then add in the dates and blitzed until combined.
Pour in the melted butter and thoroughly combine. Use a cake tin with removable sides and 26-28cm in size. Grease the bottom and edges of your cake tin then line with parchment. Spread the biscuit base patting it down to form a solid and even base. Bake for 8-10 minutes then remove and
allow to set.

Combine all cheesecake mixture apart from the eggs, whisk until thoroughly
combined in food processor or with an electric whisk. One by one add in the
eggs, whisking again until thoroughly combined.  Pour over your biscuit base. Place in the oven and bake for 45 minutes until it has a little wobble to it still. Turn the oven off, open the door slightly and allow to cool in the oven to avoid splitting.
Cool completely before removing from the tin. Store in the fridge until ready to serve.

Caramel Instructions
Pour sugar into a saucepan, add in 5 tbsp of water and cook over a medium heat until the sugar has dissolved fully. Don’t be tempted to stir or interfere with the sugar at this point. Increase the heat cooking until it turns a caramel colour.  Remove from the heat and add in both the cream and butter, stir until you have a caramel consistency.  Add in your spices and ginger. Pour over the cheesecake and serve.

Black Forest profiterole stack

Habitat_AnnaBarnett_BlackForestProfiterole_034.jpg


Feeds-4-6 - Preparation time – 25 minutes - Cooking time – 50 minutes

Ingredients

Profiteroles
75g unsalted butter
150ml water
100g plain flour – sifted
pinch of salt
3 medium free-range eggs – lightly beaten

piping bags needed

Crème patissière with cherry filling
4 egg yolks – lightly beaten
100g super fine caster sugar
25g plain flour
350 ml milk
1 vanilla pod or ½ tsp vanilla bean paste
1 jar of kirsch soaked cherries – roughly chopped

Chocolate kirsch and cherry sauce
200g good quality dark chocolate – roughly broken
170ml double cream
150ml kirsch
1 jar of kirsch soaked cherries
Chocolate dipped cherries
250g cherries
100g dark chocolate – melted
sprinkle of sea salt flakes

Instructions:

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius. Line two baking trays with parchment paper | Place the butter and 150ml of water in a saucepan over a high heat until the butter melts and the water begins to boil. Once boiling immediately add the flour and a pinch of salt, stir vigorously with a wooden spoon until the mixture comes together | Reduce the heat and continue to stir for another minute | When the mixture begins to stick or coat the base of the pan remove from the heat completely and allow to stand for 1 minute | Now gradually add in the whisked eggs, beating the mixture vigorously one more time until it comes together in a glossy dough like consistency | It should still be able to drop off the spoon at this stage | Transfer the mixture to your piping bag and pipe or spoon onto your parchment rounds that are a little bigger than a tablespoon Wet your finger and pat the top of each round so you get a nice round and smooth top to your profiteroles | Allow enough room between each as they’ll grow when baked | Transfer to the middle of the oven and allow to bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden | Once cooked remove from the oven, make a small hole with a knife or scissors in the bottom or side and transfer to a wire rack to cool.

For the crème patissière, whisk the egg yolks with the sugar until light and fluffy then stir in the flour | Place the milk and vanilla in a saucepan and bring to the boil | Remove the vanilla pod and reduce the heat to a medium low heat then add in the egg yolk mixture, whisk vigorously and increase the heat a little so it just about comes to the boil and thickens | The trick is to ensure you don’t over cook and scramble the mixture | Pour into a bowl and stir through your cherries, cover with cling film (to prevent a film from forming) cool and then transfer to the fridge until ready to use | When ready to use transfer to a piping bag and pipe into holes made in profiteroles.

To make the chocolate kirsch and cherry sauce add the broken chocolate to a bowl and set over a pan of boiling water, allow to melt | In a separate pan combine the cream, kirsch and cherries and warm (don’t bring to the boil) | Once the chocolate has melted simply pour the cream in and whisk until combined and you have a thick glossy sauce (for extra gloss you can add a knob of butter).

For the chocolate dipped cherries, simply melt chocolate in a bowl over a pan of boiling water and dip the cherries in the mixture before laying them out on parchment paper | Sprinkle with a little sea salt flakes and allow to cool before transferring to the fridge | Serve the profiteroles piped with the crème patissière, a generous serving of cherry chocolate sauce and a scattering of chocolate dipped salted cherries.

Habitat_AnnaBarnett_PanatoneWaffles_041.jpg

Feeds – 4 | Preparation time –15 minutes

Panettone Waffles –
250g plain flour
7g baking powder
20g caster sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
470ml full fat milk
2 eggs
30ml vegetable oil
handful of dried apricots – finely chopped
handful of raisins – finely chopped
large knob of butter to grease waffle maker
Drunken Apricots – Allow 1 Apricot per serving
2 generous glugs of brandy
1 knob of butter
2 tbsp of brown sugar
1 star anise
1 clove

Crème Anglaise –
250ml double cream
½ tsp vanilla extra or 1 vanilla pod, halved and seeds scraped
4 large egg yolks - whisked
75g caster sugar

Combine all of the waffle ingredients except the dried fruit in a large mixing bowl until the large lumps have disappeared – be careful to not over stir before finally adding in the chopped fruit. Allow the waffle maker to heat up and give it a generous coating of butter. Add a ladle of the mixture and allow to cook until golden. This should take a couple of minutes or so. Serve while hot or reheat in the oven until crisp.

For the drunken apricots combine all of the ingredients except the apricots and bring to the boil before reducing the heat to low. Chop the apricots into thirds or halves and lay them chopped side down in the brandy. Allow to stew for 5 or so minutes until soft then serve. Drizzle over juice from the pan when serving.

For the Crème Anglaise combine the cream and vanilla in a saucepan, place over a medium to high heat and bring almost to the boil. Combine the egg yolks and sugar until you have a smooth consistency then pour half of your hot cream mixture into your egg and sugar mixture and whisk vigorously. Pour the combined ingredients back into the pan with the remaining warm cream and continue to whisk to avoid any lumps forming. Continue to cook over a medium heat until the sauce thickens a little. Serve warm poured over the waffles.
