Good morning. Stay right where you are and enjoy 90 minutes of world


class food cooked right in front of your eyes. This is Saturday Kitchen


Live! Welcome to the show. Cooking live with me in the studio are two


formidable chefs. First, the woman who has put Eastern Mediterranean


food firmly on the culinary map with her best-selling books but


more recently her brand new London restaurant, Quince. It's the blonde


bombshell, Silvena Rowe. Next to her is a chef who's helping


maintain Ludlow as a gourmet hot spot with the shiny Michelin star


he hangs above the door of his restaurant, La Becasse. Making a


welcome return to the show, it's Will Holland. Good morning to you


both. So, Silvena you are kicking off the show, what are you cooking


for us? It is blueberry and chili molasses glazed belly of pork. And


a salad that is prepared with feta and yoghurt and cumin.


It sounds great to me. Slowly cooked? Slowly cooked then a


flash grill all in the oven. Will? I'm taking a gamble, I'm


going to have a go at sweet red wine souffle.


A big gamble xap We are serving that with summer berries, creme


fraiche and mint. Very few ingredients. Easy to do at home!


Two very different dishes to look forward to and we've also got a


great line up of foodie films from the BBC archive. There's Rick Stein,


Anjum Annand and, Nigel Slater and the great, Mr. Keith Floyd. Now,


our special guest today has one of the most recognisable faces in the


world having graced the front cover of nearly every fashion magazine


from Elle to Vogue. But more impressive than that, she's also a


massive petrolhead! And a massive friend of mine it is Jodie Kidd. We


have been trying to get you on the show for ages, but something has


been keeping you busy? Yes, I'm pregnant! So, I'm very excited. My


mouth has been watering, telling me about the food.


Due in September. So, we are cooking for two.


Yes. At the end of the show, I am


cooking food heaven or food hell for Jodie. What spr is your


favourite -- what is your favourite ingredient, food heaven, what would


it be? R Well, I'm a big -- Well, I'm a big fan of fish. So probably


a Dover sole. Nothing too pungent or strong.


And not too expensive, they are about �20 each! Now, what about


food hell? Probably another fish. Probably a mackerel. Something


stronger, I'm not a fan of if. You have to get it as fresh as a


daisy, that's the thing. Really? I will watch and learn.


Ours is three weeks old! Is it?! either mackerel or Dover sole.


The Dover sole, this is cooked fish is skinned and filleted then pan


fried in butter. It's served along with a stew of chorizo, artichokes


and tomato. It's finished with a few home-made potato gnocchi and a


handful of fresh herbs. Or Jodie could be facing food hell, mackerel.


The mackerel is glazed with a mixture of ginger, garlic,


coriander, tamarind and a spoonful of honey then flashed under a


fiercely hot grill. It's served on a bed of spicy lemongrass noodles


and a few chinese greens. You will have to wait until the end of the


show to see which one Jodie gets. Now, our two guests, eleie, you


wrote in, who have you with you? have my boyfriend, Ben.


You are a teacher? Yes, in Reading. Are you off? Five weeks left, then


the holidays. And the holiday? We are going to


America. And Ben, what are you doing? I'm in


the RAF rv. A fantastic job.


-- I'm in the RAF. A fantastic job.


To call in: Put your questions to us live later


on if you get on the show I'll be asking you if Jodie should be


getting food heaven or food hell. So, start thinking.


Heaven! Right, let's cook. First, the woman in charge of the brand


new restaurant in Mayfair, Quince. It is Silvena Rowe. You have been


busy in the last few months? I have joined the rest of the chefing


world. 18 hours a day, working with all of that. If I fall asleep, slap


me, with pleasure! What are we cooking today? I have a fairly


youngish pork. It is fairly lean. So basically, what I will do with


So basically, what I will do with that is simply plonk it in my tray.


Here I have some spices. . I like cardamom, coupin seeds and


fennel. While you crush the cardamom, I will rub the seeds on


the top. My restaurant is eastern Mediterranean. It is the food of


Turkey, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan. So, a little bit of salt in here.


They have particular spices, cardamom being one, that sort of


stuff. It is very sweet? Yes, I like to, in this country we love


pork with apple. So instead of apple I go for blueberry.


We have three major molasses. We use them in dressings, we use them


in mar United States, in glazes, etc. So, having done that, we have


chicken stock here, which I will pour over it. Basically, we are to


leaf it now for three to four hours in a fairly low oven. Once we cover


it, of course. So, it is basically braising?


to be honest I leave it for as long as I can. I like the meat to be


flaking off. To be able to pull it. So, can you put that in the oven


for me, please? Thank you so much. So, what temperature? About 150


Celsius. Something like. There$$NEWLINE So, about a gas


four? Yes. Let's see what is happening here, then. Very nice.


So this is looking fairly good. Make sure when you work with it,


that it is cooler. Now, the salad? Before I do the


salad, shall we do our, you know? You know who is the chef here,


don't you. Imagine you are in Quince! I was never in doubt.


Right, blueberry, don't go for the fresh ones, the cheaper once, the


frozen ones are just as delicious. You are waring -- wearing the


proper colours! So, the sugar and water. Then pass it here. Once you


start a messy job, you have to finish it. Can you pass it through


the sieve? Yes. I will do that. Once you pass it through the sieve


add lemon. Congratulations on the restaurant,


you have the first review today? Apparently we are sultry and


glamorous! St That is what is being said, I could not disagree with me


-- it. And r and the restaurant?


restaurant is fabulous. I think it is the epitomy of sultry and


glamorous, don't you think?! think it is a real compliment.


We want a real jam here. You cannot get it from the shops, so this is a


real work of your own. So it makes it even more delicious.


. Now, the pork here. James, you are doing everything for


me now! You know your place on this show, I tell you! Now, this skin,


we are taking it off. This is fabulous to do a crackling with,


but not in this dish. What is the best way to do a crackling, James?


With pork belly, cook it for long slow cooking, but not to cover it


with tin foil, but about the same amount of time.


Then crank up the heat before you need it.


OK. So what we do now is arrange our belly of pork on the tray.


Where is the chilli going? In here. Yes, in there.


In there? Yes, please. God, didn't I that! Just double


checking first. All of my chefs are afraid of me, I


don't know why? I'll tell you one day! Over the phone! Now, at this


stage I love to put it in a very, very hot oven to finish it off. If


you really want if you have the time you can finish it in the sal


mander. Or a very hot grill if at home.


So, give it a give amount of this. Is that the portion size? Yes.


This is one of the best-selling dishes.


People love it. It is fabulous.


I bet they do with that size. People who don't love pork even


love it! If you want to ask a question on the show, call this


number. I have to do this bit, first! You can put your questions


to us live later on. You can find Silvena's recipes with the others


on the show at the website: What we have here is yoghurt and


feta cheese. I love those two things.


Here are the leaves. Well done! Explain what we have in


here? Basically we have yoghurt, feta cheese and we are really


whoshing it together with a bit of cumin and lemon.


Yes, a little bit is OK. No need of salt or pepper, the seasoning is


perfect. The lettuce leaves go in there. Coat them nicely. Then I


have sesame. With cumin seeds that I will sprinkle on the top. I love


the crunch. The creaminess of the dressing works together with the


crunch. Tell us about Quince? It is eastern


Mediterranean, in the heart of London, Mayfair, fabulous food. It


is a touch of Lebanese, a touch of Ottoman, but really British fare.


The best of British pork, beef. Come and try it.


I swear, we have unbelievable food. The salads are incredible. They are


all fat-free. I don't use dressings, so the food is light and


deelectible. Light? You have two kilos of pork


here! But we are in Britain. I love pork. British pork is phenomenon al,


so why not. Where do the ideas come from?


heritage, my dear. I am Ottoman, Turkish, Bulgarian and I have


basically gone back to my roots. It is a little bit of a play on


flavours, that kind of thing. That looks good to me.


This is fabulous, yes. You want it caramelised. Remember


the blueberry molasses will do that exactly.


It is fabulous. What is this I'm doing here? It is


black sesame seeds and cumin seeds it give as wonderful crunch and


flavour to finish. There is your salad.


And here are the baby squares. T this is phenomenon al.


So, it basically goes back in a really, really high temperature?


Yes. The ovtown is easy, but the grill


you have to watch it. So, with the seeds on top and this is your dish


finished. So, remind us what that is again?


This is blueberry and chili molasses glazed belly of pork and a


salad with feta and yoghurt and a touch of cumin.


It looks good to me. I know it smells good, but does it taste goo?


I'm so excited. Dive into that. Tell us what you


think? I suppose that pork is the only thing you can do that which?


Beef, brisket, it will not get the same flavour? No. I think that pork


lends itself well to the fruitiness. It works great together. People who


don't like pork even love that dish. Chicken thighs? I have a chilli and


har Issa marinaded chicken thighs. Happy with that? That is really


good. It right and fresh. Really good! Will, ever cooked pork and


blueberries? No, but like you said, you always use something sweet to


cut the fattiness, so why not use the blueberries.


The molasses is Turkish. They usualally use pomgran at. The


blueberries, though is fabulous with the pork. Mull berry, I use in


my dressings, all of my dressings are made with fruit. Nothing is


with oil. It is fabulous. Sounds good to me. I will not get


any of it this side! Now, to Peter Richards to Kent, what did he


choose to go with the stunning pork choose to go with the stunning pork


belly? I'm at the light railway here outside of sitting born. I


have so make track floos town to find some great wines to go with


Silvena's cooking is all about creativity and delicious, often


eclectic flavours that can make it difficult to find the right wine.


In this dish there is feta, pork, blueberries and spices. These


ingredients can give you options when it comes to the wine. If you


fancy a palate-cleansing wine, then look no further than this Riesling,


but my choice is for a red wine, one that marries freshness with


juiciness, that is not an easy thing to find in an affordable red,


but it is something that the Ravenswood Vintners Blend Zinfandel


2007 carries off well. When you look at a bunch of citizen


fan del grapes at harvest it is messy. There are the ripe grapes as


well as the overripe ones but with an experienced wine maker putting


that together, you can make up a beautiful marriage of freshness,


with character. Citizen fan del is famous for its aromas of


blueberries and blackberries to pick up on the molasses it is rich


and juicy to work with the pork and the molasses and the heat of the


chilli it is fresh and crunchy in texture, to work with the salad and


there is a lovely savoury creaminess running through the wine


to pick up on the feta and the yoghurt. It is a succulent,


motherish, delicious wine. Much like your dish, Silvena. So,


what a treat! Sorry, Peter, I did not watch any of that. I was


listening to a two-way conversation about high-heeled shoes, but what


do you think of the wine? I love it. He has a great sense of my food.


This is not an easy dish to match because of the sweetness.


Did he try the dish before choosing the wine? Yes, they do.


They call me. It is all properly done here, you know! Will, what do


you reckon? It is lovely. I don't want to annoy you to say it is like


a barbeque. I have no problem with that.


It sounds good to me. The men are happy. Ben? Great.


Beautiful. Now, you can join us here at the


chef's table, just write to us with your name and address and


importantly, the daytime phone number.


Later on, Will is taking on a culinary challenge with a special


dish... Souffle! A red wine souffle! It could be tricky.


No producer. First, a Mediterranean escape with


Rick Stein. He is in the hills of Mount Etna, which it turns out is


The soil around Etna and the lemons grown round here


a real Sicilian delicacy, He says the secret


but they treat the lemons very gently and don't break the skins.


He only wants the juice and not the mashed-up pith.






Then the lemon juice is mixed with sugar


and a little water and poured into this wonderful machine.


I think the creation of machinery like this


is a real testimony to ingenuity to- create something really refreshing.


Sicily is home of ices in the Western world,


Sicily is home of ices in the Western world,


but they say it was the Arabs


who gave them the inspiration with their ice-cold sharbats or sherbets.


Granita is much grainier - which is- what granita means - than a sorbet.


I just love watching this as the icy shavings turn to slurry which gets


thicker and creamier until it's time to serve.


I think a lemon granita is an Italian icon -


up there with Mario Lanza, caponata and the motor scooter.


Now do you remember this? Richard Dimbleby's little film


Well, I'm in Porto Paolo which is just outside Menfi. I'm with Vittorio


and I'm really looking forward to eating this though which is...


which is porcini - the ceps, wild mushrooms - with tomato, olive oil, a bit of white wine.


And he's going to do that with some- vongole. It'll be perfecto.


He puts in some chopped tomatoes, oil - olive oil of course -


garlic, the vongole,






Basilico, of course!


..chilli flakes.


And then he chops up a fresh green chilli.


Giorgio Locatelli told me about Vittorio in London and that's why I'm here.


He rates him as probably the best seafood chef in Sicily.


He puts in some parsley and a good dollop of white wine


and then he gets the pasta going.




Mwah! I've only just met Vittorio but the thing about cooks - I know I like him.


The reason I like him is he wants to please me and that's- what good cooks are all about -


thinking about who they're cooking for and pleasing them -


and he's just given me that clam because he knows I'll like it


and I've tried the sauce already and it's absolutely delicious.


I mean, he's a star!


And then he puts in the porcini, which literally means


"little pigs" in Italian,


and he gets on to make the pasta.


The thing that keeps cropping up with me with Italian cooking is generosity.


It's all about families,


it's all about big portions, it's all about steaming bowls of lovely food.


Who could fail to have their appetite excited


about something like this?


Alla tabella! Pronto. >




Well, this is the best bit of the whole job for me.


I always manage to splatter my shirt at moments like this


but I don't care - I love being in Sicily!


Mmm! Delicious!


Lovely al dente-ness about the pasta.


Excuse me.


In the hotel last night, there were some Americans who said


they'd met up with a strange Englishman who was writing a book about Sicilian food


while exploring the island on a scooter. Well, we all knew who they- were talking about -


Matthew Fort, the Guardian's food writer and a friend of mine.


Food - have you had any decent meals yet?


I've had a couple of so-so meals but I've had some absolutely, absolutely stormingly good meals


made from very, very sort of simple- straightforward but extraordinarily- good ingredients. Very high quality.


I totally agree and I think that's what makes this place so fantastic.


Very nice to see you, Matthew. If you find anything like wine,


'Matthew mentioned such a good dish -


'simply grilled swordfish... Don't wave, Matthew!


'..with a Sicilian classic sauce - salmoriglio.'


I like doing these sort of simple dishes


with char-grilled food, with barbecued food outdoors.


It's the sort of thing where you can have a couple of friends sitting by


and have a bit of a chat and a glass of wine.


I always think it's quite nice when you're cooking, to have people around


but you don't really want them too close when you're in a busy kitchen


doing something rather over-complicated.


But this salmoriglio's really straightforward.


This is olive oil, water and lemon juice.


I'm adding oregano, flat-leaf parsley and celery tops.


Then I put in garlic,


freshly ground black pepper and salt.


And this salmoriglio is probably the most popular sauce in the whole of Sicily


and it's really good with roasted meat.


So now to grill those lovely swordfish steaks.


All they need is a few flakes of dried chilli and a bit of seasoning.


Swordfish are best in late spring to early summer.


I was told that that the Sicilian fishermen say something in Greek before they start fishing.


Now this is to trick the fish into thinking that it is Greek fishermen


who are not very good at fishing rather than Italian who are!


Well that's what the Sicilians say.- Well, they would, wouldn't they?


I've cooked the swordfish for four minutes on each side - now that's really important -


so that it's nice and moist in the middle.


I mean, basically this is a classic, isn't it?


I mean, if you think of the perfect- fish for a barbecue, it's swordfish


and the salmoriglio goes so well with it.


And just a green salad and some chips.


Nothing fancy. That's perfect for me.


I suppose Matthew is still on his scooter buzzing around Sicily.


It would be so good to have had lunch with him and yap about fish,


cheeses, tomatoes, great sauces, breads...


well, until the wine ran out!




Fabulous food


Fabulous food as


Fabulous food as always from Rick. That sauce is perfect to go with


almost anything you cook outside this weekend. If the weather let's


you, of course. It has been raining this week, but brilliant for the


fruit and vegetable. You are diving into it already? This is so good.


This is from my garden. I picked it in the rain this morning. Just for


you. Good man.


I thought with you, I would do a little, being with child, a fancy


meringue. A raspberry meringue swan.


Wow! So we start off the meringue with egg whites.


Now, of course, you can buy egg whites that are pasteurised.


whites that are pasteurised. Can you? If you can't find those,


telein supermarkets already. They are very popular in America. They


have just started to come here. Egg whites in a tub in the supermarkets.


Already pasteurised. I love that. I will do that with


the fingers. I do it with the top of the shell.


It takes forever. I like the fingers.


Now, brought in up the Bahamas? Barbados. Lovely. Lovely. My


parents had a family home in Barbados, so we always were there


for the holidays, but lived here. That is where you were spotted by


the great Terry O'Neill of course? It was indeed. We were on holiday.


I was 15 years old. Terry went up to my mum and said I think that she


can be a model. I was engrowsed in horses and showjumping as a junior.


I was going up to the next level. Your family are heavily into that?


My dad was about to go to the Olympics with the show-jumping team


until something happened to his horse, but an amazing showjumper


and he went on to play polo. I took after him and was being a youngster


doing the showjumping scene and then was spotted for models. I was


just about to go up to the seniors, I needed a horsebox. I had never


had my own horsebox. I thought I would give modelling a go and it


could enable me to buy a horsebox. Give it a go! I was a pot washer to


make money, you went to be a model! But there was a controversy at that


time about the thin models? Yes, when I started modelling it was the


time of the adroj news now, you know, girlie, blokey kind of look.


Very dark photographs. It was that period.


-- adrogynous. Fashion is like that, it changes.


It will go into the superCindy Crawford look, then go back into


the tomboyish look. Now, I have this done here, the egg


whites down with the sugar. Now we are going to take the raps berries.


-- raspberries. This is where we start to build up


the swans. We take this and place two pieces on each one. This is its


wing. That's its wing? Is this going to


be like a work of art? I won't be able to eat it? It will be a great


shame! You will be able to eat it, but the idea is that raspberries


are really in season. With the rain, it will make it go crazy. Excuse me,


I know I should not lick my fingers, but it is delicious. We take this.


What is that? It helps you stick this down.


I amateurible with ovens, I was brought up in a country that were


all Aga. I only know how to cooken an Aga.


You can't do these on an Aga. Make sure that they are nice and


thin. Janet did these yesterday, they were like big fat ducks! But


you put them in the oven and at 200 degrees they are lovely and soft


and sticky. I am going to finish this off. Add


some more raspberries. While we are doing that, you are a jack of all


trades, you are a model, a polo player? I know. I'm confused.


A dancer, a presenter? I am confused in my career path..A


Golfer and the racing driver? I know, we are oft on the race


track together down at good wood. Yes. When it comes to sport, you


are keen on sport, you are doing this swimming thing? Tell us about


that? I am. I am. Today we are launching the British Gas Big Dip.


They have a 25-metre pool into the middle of Clapham Common. People


can go along and they can swim, they can do classes in the water.


There is a wonderful beach there. It is mad it is brilliant.


This is purpose-built? Yes, it is there for a month and then to goes


to Manchester. People can go along, take their family, sit on the beach,


relax, hopefully if the sun comes out. They can take part in a huge


number of activities. They have volley ball, water polo. They have


fitness in the water. This is all about encouraging


people to swim? Exactly. To get out, to be active. To get sporty as we


are hosting the Olympics next year. This is a drive to get people


involved in sport. You are nodding about swimming?


am a dolphin myself! You get the Bahamas, you have the Plaque Sea, I


have my local pool! I cheated, -- you have the Black Sea. I have my


local pool! I cheated, every kid did it, but it is great to get


everybody involved in this? Yes. Swimming, while I've been pregnant,


it is a lovely thing to do. The reason I really got into swimming,


I have a charity foundation that I was raising money for. I thought


the best thing to do would be the marathon. I started to train for


the marathon. I am just not built for running! Nor am I, love! Nor am


I! As I'm about to put a load of cream on! Running is not my bag! So,


my body could not handle it with my bones, and everything. So, I did a


swim. I did this British Great Swim. You swim a mile and you can still


raise money for charity. It is very tough, actually. You have to swim


on open water. It was on the Thames? It was, but


they have amazing locations. I should have done Lake Windlemere up


in the Lake District. It is beautiful there, but I chose the


Thames. It was great, but daunting swimming in open water where you


don't have lines to follow or you are just looking ahead you in this


murky water! Look at that. They are amazing.


Now, I have done these with the pasteurised eggs, just for you.


Amazing. That is so sweet. You can if you want, take that and


do the tail! Oh! What can I say, museum work! This is all a bit


fancy?!. You are showing off! There you go, and a bit like that. Like


most things in the UK, it is raining... Oh, its bottom fell off!


Look at that! It is gorgeous. I don't know what to say Just dive


into it. Oh, the bum is coming off again!


Just ignore that. Stick some mint in instead.


How-do I attack that? In the cream I have double cream, a touch of


vanilla and raspberries. If you are going out, you are near


a garden centre, it is bound to be raining, get yourself strawberry


and raspberry plants. They are so simple to grow.


How delicious is that? You have just made a pregnant lady very,


very happy! What are we cooking for Jodie at the end of the show? Could


it be food heaven or food hell. Dover sole, food heaven. Roasted


with chorizo. With home-made gnocchi and fresh hers.


You are -- and fresh herbs. Or could it be food hell? Mackerel.


Served with spicy noodles and a few Chinese Greens! That was half a


swan in your mouth! Some of our guests in the studio get to help to


choose Jodie's feat today! Dover sole.


What about you? Dover sole. You have to wait until the end of


the show for the final result. It is time to spice things up with


another menu of easy Indian food from Anjum Anand.


Take a look at this. I'm heading to the


This stunning landscape was the inspiration for Emily Bronte's classic novel, Wuthering Heights.


The Keighley and Worth Valley Railway was started in 1968.


It's a recreation of a 1950s branch- line serving the local community.


It's hugely popular and is entirely run by volunteers like Jessica,


who help to maintain a wonderful piece of history in Yorkshire.


Hi. Hi. Are you Jessica?


I am, yes. Hi. Anjum. How do you do?


Nice to meet you. Shall we have a look around? Yeah. OK.


And what kind of food do you serve on these evenings?


It can be a huge variety.


It can be things such as roast beef and things like that for our Sunday lunch train.


To more complicated dishes.


This is the tiny kitchen where all the action takes place.


Jessica and two other colleagues will have to prepare


a three-course Indian meal in this space, for up to 50 guests.


Have you ever cooked Indian food?


No, I've used jars and things, but that's really it.


That's not cooking. No.


To get her taste buds tingling, I am going to start Jessica off with a Kashmiri specialty...


Now, Rogan Josh is probably the most familiar Kashmiri dish


that we know of in this country.


In Kashmir, they would use just lots of spices, and yoghurt.


So if you slice that and I'll get into these garlic cloves


to make a puree. Mm-hm.


First, I'm going to fry up all my spices in hot oil.


I'm using black and green cardamom pods, pepper corn,


cloves, cinnamon and mace, which is derived from the nutmeg tree.


Next, I'm going to make a paste using six cloves of garlic


and one square inch piece of ginger.


So in with our meat.


OK. All in. Right.


And, if I can have you gently browning that off in the onions.


I haven't gone too dark with the onions


is cos they're going to cook now more with the meat...


Even more. Yeah. Yeah.


There's big pieces here. Would you leave them this size?


OK. So how did you get involved in this train? Or how did that happen?


Your parents are involved too, aren't they?


Yes. They are still... Slightly less involved than they were. Mm.


My father used to bechairman of the catering department.


Ah! Now the connection makes sense.


He roped you in, didn't he? Something like that, yes.


OK. I'm just going to puree these tomatoes.


Then I'm adding half a teaspoon of chilli powder


and two teaspoons of cumin,


coriander and garam masala.


Now, fennel seed is really typical of Kashmir. Mm-hm.


It is something that should go into- Rogan Josh. It just works.


Although it sounds unusual, it works well with the lamb.


So I'm adding two teaspoons. OK.


In go the tomatoes.


This is yoghurt. I've stirred it so it's got no lumps. OK.


So, three tablespoons.


Straight in.


OK? Stir. And that's really all that goes into it.


Now I'm going to leave the lamb to stew for about 20 minutes.


Once the liquid has reduced, I brown the meat slowly in the masala.


What it's doing is concentrating those flavours? Yeah.


So you just need enoughliquid in there to stop it catching?


Yeah, exactly. So it shouldn't be dry. OK.


But there shouldn't be so much liquid that it's bubbling away.


Yeah. So I'm happy with that.


I can smell the caramelisation of that masala. I understand.


I need to add some water.


It's not supposed to be a thin gravy, but also not thick,


cos we're going to have it with rice


so we need enough to moisten that.


All right, so that's boiling. I'm putting the heat back on.


Turning it down a bit and then, leaving it till the lamb's completely cooked.


Another ten minutes or so.


Un petit peu de garnish.


That is more than garnish cos once you crunch into that with the lamb,


it's really fragrant and fresh.


And I think it's time to try.


That's fabulous. Is it? Yes.


That's not converting you to eat lamb in Indian restaurants, is it? It might.


You're kidding? Yeah. Success!


That's a good curry. Mm.


If I do say so myself!


Apology for the loss of subtitles for 53 seconds


I'm going to


I'm going to whip


I'm going to whip the


I'm going to whip the ingredients together for a minute.


I love the orange. Tasting time. My favourite time.


Very nice. Very nice. Very delicate. Light for the end of the meal.


I have come back to the railway in south Yorkshire. Today Jessica and


the rest of the railway's volunteers are preparing for their


round-trip. Jessica is organised, but the size of the task is


beginning to dawn on her. I'm busy getting on with it. Not


trying to think about it too much. If I do, I will get paranoid about


Good morning! How is it going? It is OK.


Can I help? I think we have everything under control.


I didn't expect to be demoted! But it is good to see Jessica and her


team are confident. The passengers are boarding and the journey is


about to begin. Now that it is full-steam ahead,


the food must be served within the two hours of the trip. 20 minutes


into the journey, things are not go Jessica's decided to serve pilaf


However, the journey can't be delayed because this historic steam locomotive


shares its line with a local commuter train.


So, in the heart of Bronte country,- the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway


has served up its first Indian menu.


Oh, it was exceptional. It tasted nice.


Well presented. I really enjoyed it.


Very nice.


We had the lamb and that was just really good.


There was no heat to it, but the spices came through just so well.


It was really tasty.


I had the rice, and I could have sat down and just had the rice on its own. It was wonderful.


The main courses have gone down a treat. Now it's time for dessert.




Dessert? Yes.


Kashmiri cuisine, because it's so regionalised has surprised me a little bit.


It's just more varied than I imagined it was going to be.


Things don't need to be hot, just because you're using spices.


So that you can gain depth and taste to a dish without actuallymanaging to blow somebody's head off.


It's been quite nerve-wracking, but the great thing is that we've all pulled together,


because ultimatelyit is all a team effort down here.


That's the best thing about it, really.




You can


You can see


You can see more recipes from Anjum on next week's show. Still to cock


on Saturday Kitchen, Nigel Slater is doing battle in his garden.


After fighting off the local wildlife, he retreats to the


kitchen to make a mixed vegetable soup with cannellini beans and


Chard. Keith Floyd is in the Pyrenees mountains from France. He


is taking off a Basque chicken to prepare by himself in the fabulous


bow tie. There will be serious EGG- plaining to do, Will, if he cracks


under the pressure, live a little later on. What are we cooking for


Jodie at the end of the show? Will it be food heaven? Can she eat food


heaven? Have you eaten the meringues? They are gone! It could


be food heaven, sofr sole or food hell, mackerel.


Will, what do you like the sound of. The king of fish, the Dover sole or


the tiny, cheap, mackerel. I will go for the Dover sole. Just


as I don't want to upset Jodie! the man in charge of the hub at La


Becasse, welcome back it is Will Holland.


Now, souffle, you have made these? Yes, these are going in the oven,


but now we shall go through the process.


There we go, gas mark 350 degrees for eight minutes.


Don't keep checking and opening the door.


Right, we are making a syrup. Sugar and water.


You are confident with the souffles? The thing is, there is a


lot of people at home who are scared about it, basically. There


is no need to be scared, that is is no need to be scared, that is


what I'm going to show you. Why are you looking nervous! Famous


last words! Talk about the syrup? If we are getting technical, we are


taking it to 1-2-1. To you, me and everyone, we are boiling it until


it is a syrup. Sugar and water boils more than


boiling water. You boil water, then add sugar it


continues to heat up. It is 1-21. So that is a part. Now in here


there is corn flour and red wine. Often making souffles you make it


with a custard base. This is the first time I have seen this.


There are two ways, as you said, the custard base and then this


version, which is corn flour. All I have done is to mix the corn flour


and red wine. As I want an intense red wine flavour, I have a wine


with a lot of oomph. So something big, a Rioja, a Merlot. A Shiraz.


Something that is big that packs a good punch.


When you are doing the souffle moulds for Will, you basically take


the butter and make the lines up the side of the dish. This is


supposed to make the souffle rise? Thaet it.


Onwards and up wards. -- that's it.


I think that this is murmow jumbo. Make one up and one down. -- mumbo


-jumbo. I think that is a Michelin tale!


Any way! I'll do it your way! We are using our eggs pasteurised


again. We are using these so you don't get


partially cooked eggs. Fantastic! What is in there?


corn flour and the red wine mix. You have to bring it to the boil.


You can see how thick it comes it has been there for a minute or two.


You have to keep whisking it? you don't want it lumpy.


This is Rioja in there? Yes. As soon as it comes to the boil, out


it comes. You can see how thick it is. Get all of that out. Whisk the


syrup and the red wine mix together. That's it. That is the finished


base. Now, tell us about Ludlow. An


amazing place, famous for wonderful antique shops. Great food?


course! I'm just going to pop this in the fridge.


I'm going to throw in the sugar. When we make the souffle it must be


cold. Ludlow is a fantastic food destination. It has great


restaurants and it is the culture of the town, the butchers, the


bakers, there is a fantastic food festival that happens in September.


You are doing it? I'm not doing it, it has been going on a lot longer


than I have been in town. It is its 17th year this year. That is


incredible. So for each souffle. I need a whisk. I will use this one.


It is important that the base is cold when you make the souffle.


Which whisk? A Kenny Atkins whisk or are a normal whisk? You said


that, not me! So, a couple of tablespoons here.


Ludlow is famous for Sean Hill? was the pine year. I am there to


fly the flag. It is -- He was the pioneer.


It is a great area? It is a rich area for all things lovely. Someone


is rearing suckling pigs for me. I have a farmer, the pigs have my


name on them as they are running around the yard. I don't think that


they know it! They are all called Will? Yeah, they have a tag on them.


Now, you are using a whisk, but I think this is quicker? Listen, I


don't want to say it is a fool proof recipe, yet.


It doesn't look like it at the moment! But you can be brutal with


it. It is the corn flour? Yes. Did you sugar those? Yes, they've been


sugared. Excellent. Instead of using a


spatula, tonight be afraid of getting your arm in there,


incorporating the meringue and the base.


Now, you make these before service? These are brilliant at home.


Because of the corn flour it is a sturdy mix. You don't have to make


them and cack them straight away. You can make them a couple of hours


before. You can pop them in the fridge, so the desert is ready to


go, basically. As soon as it is pudding time, pop them in the oven,


eight minutes or so... Now you have to be careful not to... You press


it around the edges with a pala tte knife? Well, na any area of the --


any area of the ramekin, if it has not got butter it will stick. So


use the knife and smooth it off like that.


I know you are a keen cook, Jodie, ever tried making a souffle for a


dinner are party? It is dangerous. Especially with the old aga, but I


have someone at home who is a fantastic cook called Rachel. She


did a cheese souffle the other day. That was brilliant. So I do love


them, but I'm a roast girl. I can do a roast for a dinner party, but


souffle, I would get a little nervous! So this method stops the


mix from sticking to the edge. You pop them in the fridge and put


them in the oven when you are ready. James you have made the berry salad.


It is lovely with the fruits coming from your garden. There is creme


fraiche and mint chopped through it. The lemon is in there to bring out


the flavour. Do you want to get them out?


get them out, I'll put them on the plate.


The moment of truth. I heard the eight minutes.


They look good. They look pretty, pretty good! They look good to me!.


There we go. Amazing.


It is a good job they did work, you brought something that is special


with you this morning? Yep, it is my mum's birthday, my special guest.


Not only have a made a souffle live on telly, it is my mum's birthday.


Your boy did good. Remind us of that again? Sweet red wine souffle!


You lucky thing. How chuffed are you?! He eis pretty good at this


game. Look at that. They are all works of


art. I feel ashamed to... Well, here, both of us! Dive in.


This is gorgeous. Someone tried it yesterday, they


said it was like eating hot red wine marsh mallow! Gorgeous. That


is seriously good. I was wondering what the wine would


be like with it. It has a delicious sourness to it. It works


beautifully with the egg white. It is not as good as the meringue,


but it is OK! Let's go and see what Peter has chosen to go with Will's


Peter has chosen to go with Will's Will's souffle is stunning. It is a


really intentive take on a classic recipe. When it comes to sweet


dishes you want the wine to be sweeter than what you have got on


the plate, but we don't want anything too rich or heavy, it


could overwhelm the bright and fresh flavours. The key for me with


this dish is that light, airy, almost frothy texture of the


souffle. That makes me thing that a little bit of fizz in our wine


would be a brilliant thing. You could go for a derbgs misec


champagne, but I have a wine that not only goes perfectly with the


wine, but it is sensational value for money. It is the Taste The


Difference, Brachetto d'Acqui 2010. There are those who may see the


wine on the shelf and thing it is pink, sweet, cheap and passen by,


but that would be a crying shame. This is a gem of a wine. Brachetto


d'Acqui 2010 is an historic style from the famous Piedmonte region.


It is renowned for its fruity character. That is what you get and


what we need with the dish. The red wine with the souffle make it is


fruity. That combined with the berries in the dish tie in


brilliantly with the wine. You get that gentle sparkle here. That


picks up well in the lightness of texture in the souffle. Yes it is


soft, sweet, but also fresh and herbal that works well with the


basil and the mint in the dish. Finally, the beautiful colour that


ties in so well with the vivid presentation on Will's dish. So,


Will, it is a style of wine that may not be to everyone's test, --


taste, but it is a great match. Is it a great match? I don't thing


he tasted it with the souffle. It is quite sweet and artificial.


It is horrible. It is like being a kid when you


drank cherry aid, not keen. What do you reckon? I would say


that the match with my dish was a great success.


Ben? It tastes like pop! It is quite light, but a miss.


Now, you can be joining us here at the chef's table. All you have to


do is write to us with your name, address and daytime telephone


number. The address is: It is time for Nigel Slater to supply us with


simple supper ideas. Today he is raiding the vegetable patch,


hopefully no snails, let's see if there is anything left for him to


I suppose I'm what you might At home my garden is split


That's what I love about growing your own.


I can pick a courgette when I want.


It's much fresher than in the shops.


Growing your own, it's not just about planting seeds and picking things.


It's about looking after things.


It's about nurturing them.


In my case, it seems to be a never-ending game with predators.


I mean, these red cabbages,


they have been lunch for... probably him, actually.


This little chap has probably had more of my cabbage than I'll have.


If it's not the snails, it's the squirrels that have a go at anything.


I just stand there shaking my fist at them...uselessly.


It's so exciting to see my vegetables grow into tasty produce that I can simply add to any dish.


Well, that's if I can get to them first.


Somebody's had a nibble at my courgettes. In fact, that's not a nibble - that is somebody's supper.


It could well be the foxes. They are incredibly hungry.


They come right up to the back door.


And they seem to be living in my neighbour's garden.


My Tuesday night supper.


I'm cooking what I call Nigel's Adaptable Bean Soup,


which, in short, means you can adapt it to be whatever you like.


Start by making a base.


Chop some spring onions and carrots.


Add to a little hot oil.


And throw in a bay leaf or two to add some depth.


To add colour, I'm putting in tomatoes then pour in some


vegetable stock, fresh or dried, whatever you have in your cupboard.


To give my soup some real body and make it into a main course, I'm adding cannellini beans.


These are pre-boiled.


Strange as it sounds, I'm going to put some orange in there. Just a single piece of peel.


It just adds a quiet, warm citrus flavour to it.


The real secret to a good soup is using your old cheese rinds, the ones in the back of the fridge.


I found some Parmesan.


If you leave it there, it doesn't really dissolve. It just slightly softens.


And it sends that savouriness that you get with Parmesan very gently through the soup.


So when you taste it, you don't think, wow, there's cheese in this soup.


But you know there's something working behind to bring


all the flavours together and give it a real richness.


The crazy thing is, it's the end of your Parmesan.


It doesn't cost anything at all.


At this point, this soup can become anything I want it to be.


And I honestly don't know what it's going to be.


There is a point when you open the fridge,


you go to the salad crisper, you go to the veg rack and just see what's there.


I mean, I know that there's some beautiful chard out there.


Chard is one of those vegetables that deserves to be better known.


It's a wonderful vegetable. It's so easy to grow.


And it's one of the few vegetables that doesn't seem to be attacked by all sorts of slugs and bugs.


The lovely thing is, it's two vegetables in one.


It's the crisp stalks and then the very soft, tender leaves.


You don't really find it in supermarkets.


But most people on allotments will have a row of chard.


If you have an organic box, you will probably get a weekly supply.


The stalks take a little longer to cook than the leaves, so pop them in first.


I'm adding some fresh parsley for seasoning,


but you can add whatever you fancy.


What I've got in there are very...


earthy, quite robust vegetables.


And I want something in there that's very soft and silky.


Chard leaves, because they are a bit like spinach leaves...


they just become soft and melting when they're warmed.


They don't need much cooking.




the cheese has softened but not completely melted.


It's just added bags of flavour.


The beans have turned the whole thing into a main course.


I've got this lovely tomatoey stock.


Then, just because I love it, for no other reason,


I'm going to put a bit of my favourite olive oil, a really fruity extra-virgin olive oil.


Just enough.


It just drizzles over.


There we are.


Make a whole batch of this, and it will last you for days.


You can add something new every time you get it out.


Come Friday, my meals tend to be about what's left


in the cupboards and fridge from my shop earlier in the week.


It's often about making the most of a bad job.


But it's quite surprising what magic you can make out of what you have left.


So I'm going to make them into the most delicious meal.


Supper tonight is a Tidy Friday Pan-fry.


This to me says fry-up.


One of those big rustic meals that's not about gentle flavours.


It's about getting things fried in a pan with crispy edges.


Just a very cheap meal where I'm using everything.


This really is making it up as you go along.


It's a collection of what's left in the fridge and what's still hanging around in the cupboards.


This is seriously relaxed cooking,


restricted only by your own good taste.


If I wanted this to be a little bit- more elegant, I'd peel the potatoes.


But I love potato skins, particularly when they go crisp in the hot oil.


That's when I think they're at their best.


Dishes like this have got to be rustic. They are meant to be big.


They're meant to be quite untidy looking.


Chop and gently boil the leftover cabbage,


just enough to soften it a little.


I'm also going to slip in some parsley.


Chuck the fresh greens in with all the crispy things.


Throw in some parsley.


It's my Friday night supper, but it's also a great kids' dish.


It's an idea that they're actually getting some fresh greens in there as well.


The trick of a great pan-fry


is having different textures, tastes, shapes and sizes.




There is


There is more


There is more quick and easy recipes from Nigel next week. Right,


it is time to answer your foodie questions. First on the line it is


Rebecca from Durham. Rebecca, hello, how old are you?


11! What is your question for us? How do you make the perfect


chocolate fondant? Well, you basically make it similar to the


souffle, so starting off with butter and chocolate in a bowl and


warm it up over a pan of hot water. You add a little bit of corn flour,


and fold in the egg whites. Put it in a mould. Lining the mould like


Will did with the souffle with butter and sugar and bake it in the


oven for eight to ten minutes. Then you can freeze them or put them in


the fridge and cook from frozen, but butter the moulds really,


really well, but cook them for exactly eight to ten minutes.


Having said that, I will send you a recipe. So stay on the line. How is


that for you? Thank you. What is that for, is that for your


cookery badge? Yes, and I'm doing the Young Chef's award.


Well done. What would you like to see at the


end of the show for Jodie? Food heaven.


Tu! And Brian, what is your question for us.


Thank you! What I have is courage ets.


What can I do with them? I love courage ets.


-- courage ets. I like them with a bit of flour and


then fry them in some butter and omive oil. Or saute them with corn


flour and they are beautiful cold or warm. You can cook them like a


rosti. Or stuff them.


And remember, keep the flowers. Everybody is getting rid of them.


Keep them, a nice little batter, of vodka and tonneic.


-- tonneic. They are fantastic with may nais.


Tonnic. -- they are fantastic with mayon


ace. Now, Toby? What would you like to


ask us? I have been fly-fishing. I have caught my first fresh


rainbow trout. What would you do with it? Keep it whole. Stuff the


belly with something, nice soft herbs, dill, chervil. Wrap it in


tin foil or paper. A splash of white wine and pop it into an oven.


At 10 degrees. For ten to is a minutes it steams inside the tin


foil of the paper so it keep it is nice and moist. When you open it


you get a lovely waft coming from the bag.


I know that I like my butter, but literally, nut brown butter. A hot


pan, butter, it starts to go brown and a squeeze of lemon Joyce over


the top of fresh trout is delicious. What dish would you -- would you


like to see at the end of the show, food heaven or fell if? -- or food


hell? Food heaven. It is a whitewash! Right, it is


that time of the show where the chefs battle it out to see how fast


they can make a three-egg omelette. This is going to be tight today, I


think? I know he is a Michelin- starred chef, so lead on.


Let's get the clocks on the screens, please. Are you ready, a three-egg


omelette cooked as fast as you can. Three, two, one, go! The cons


station you get! competitiveness! Oh, my God!


Remember it must be an omelette it must be an omelette.


Remember your mother, Will! Will, Will! Notice there is no round of


applause for that one. Will, your mother may be here,


mate... But.... You can disqualify that. I'm not proud of that


What is your mother going to say! Silvena? Well, it's not bad.


It's not bad?! It's not good, really. Come on. This is not bad. I


work 18 hours a day now, it's not bad! Look, this is... Don't feel


sorry for her James! I ain't pregnant, but I ain't eating either


of them! So, will Jodie get her idea of food heaven or food hell?


All of our guys have been going for food heaven, Dover sole. We will


find out what Jodie is having after a classic film from the Keith Floyd


archives. After last week's bat well a formidable French cook, he


has retired to a fancy hotel. He is stretching from the Mediterranean


You usually see them from the plane- But these mountains profoundly


as reflected in the highly-spiced cooking of these fiery people.


These farmers aren't posing for picture postcards. They are essential to this region.


The landscape is dotted with stacks- of fern, like crunchy walnut whips.


Spanish influence abounds.


The cooking is highly spiced, gutsy, and simple to cook.


This place is like a morgue! Nobody here! Forty-eight tables, and not an order in the place.


Well, it IS January.


You know how we scrounge things, and inconvenience the "patrons".


So they have the afternoon off, and I'll cook my own lunch.


Basque people are proud about their red peppers - come down here,- Clive! - green peppers, and onions.


In fact, those are the colours of Pays Basque.


They're also proud of their jambon de Bayonne, which is an essential part of this chicken dish.


Maize-fed, free-range chicken - just the legs, because that's economical. I've seasoned them.


Some beautiful fresh tomatoes which I've peeled and crushed up.


One thing we must have is their famous red pimento powder, which is a bit spicy.


So I'll do a bit of chopping, a bit of cooking...


a little glass of M Bonnet's special wine - it's his hotel that we're staying in.


They say a day without wine is like- a day without you-know-what!


The director says I haven't been doing enough chopping, so we'll put that to rights.


We'll fry these onions in a moment,


in some lovely lard.


You don't use olive oil in the Pays Basque, or butter, or corn oil, as I've said before.


You use goose fat, duck fat or pork fat. I have to chop these green peppers up.


Show them, Clive! Come on! I'm doing my best to be jolly sporty on this January afternoon,


dashing away with the sharp knife!


People like to watch this, because they hope I'll cut my fingers, but I never do!


Very elementary, very simple.


Then we need some Bayonne ham, cut into tiny pieces. I'll explain where all these go in a minute.


I'll chop those a bit finer, I think.


Pleased with me so far? I'm quite enjoying myself. I've got the hotel to myself.


About 800 rooms, and only the BBC crew staying in it - quite a turn-off for the owners!


Bit of parsley. Lovely fresh thyme.- Look, I've made a rainbow!


A little bit of pimento.


Stay on that, Clive. Thank you. I'm going over to the stove, OK ?


I put chopped onions, little pieces- of jambon de Bayonne, which is ham from Bayonne - get it? OK ? -


and some lovely, lovely lard.


Next, I put in the seasoned leglets- of "poulet de mais" - chicken raised on corn.


I hope there's a picture of those corn stores!


That's why the chickens are yellow.


Anyway, back to the pot!


Let those take a nice golden colour- in this quite brisk heat. Turn them all over.


Next, in go my red and green peppers.


Stir those well in. Let them take the lard, and get well seasoned with the bits of ham.


Now, if the director... Oh, I can manage.


Into my little bit of parsley I've put that fierce, red pimento powder, OK ? And the garlic.


Got it, Clive? So that goes in.


It all takes the heat really well.


Then, finally, these chopped tomatoes and all their juices.


Stir it in like that.


Give it a good...


..a good shake, like that, and let it simmer.


That'll take one hour, 20 minutes. I'm going for a stroll. See you in the dining-room.


Bye, now!


MUSIC: Ravel's "Bolero"


BBC research shows that you find these pictures just as exhaus... as fascinating as I do.


This was the birthplace of Ravel. It's said he hummed "Bolero" on his way down to St Jean de Luz


for a plate of grilled sardines. Yum yum!


Seriously, this former whaling port- is great in winter. Louis XIV got married here.


Hemingway liked it, and I like Hemingway. "We had a good meal.


"Roast chicken, new green beans, mashed potatoes, a salad, and apple pie and cheese."


Sounds good! ALMOST as good as my brilliant Chicken Basquaise. Isn't that delicious!


As you can see, it's down to me and Ernest at the moment,


so I'll get on with my lonely supper.


If any publishers are out there, I really want to be a novelist.


Here's a piece I've just written.


REVERENT VOICE: "The cold air cleared my head, and the snowy mountains looked fine.


"Jake wanted a drink. I said no, we'd miss the dealing.


"As we walked, the sun broke the ridge. The horsehair was going good, and men did business."


Pulitzer Prize for me, I shouldn't be surprised!


"Pablo was cooking Bayonne ham over charcoal.


"I watched Clive taking mood shots of men discussing pelote with passion.


"The women sold hard mountain cheeses on rough tables,


"and stacked spiced sausages like gold bars.


"Jake said it was time Clive won an award for his photography.


"I went to buy a Gateau Basque." Filled with custard. It's good!




Yes, we


Yes, we did


Yes, we did like, that Keith. Classic stuff. It is time to find


out if Jodie is facing food heaven or food hell. Everybody here has


made their minds up, if it was not writing on the cards, already, food


heaven could be this lovely piece of Dover sole, the king of all flat


fish. With artichokes and chore eethow.


I love -- ch ritzo. Or there could be mackerel. What do


you thing that this lot have decided? I really hope that they


have gone author that -- for that 7-0. The mackerel is gone. So, I am


going to take this fish, first of all. I have to prepare the fish. If


you guys can make me the gnocchi, Phil, if you Will? -- if you will?


-- if you guys can make me the gnocchi, Will if you will?! With


Dover sole, this is one of the world's most expensive fish, this


one was �17. Wow! Mind you, we are in London.


So, London prices and all of that. But it is quite expensive is Dover


sole. So, remove the skirt. That is


So, remove the skirt. That is called the skirt.


Now, the skin if you go that way it is smooth, but like a cat's tongue


if you go that way. So we have to remove this skin. We cut this at


the back of the tail. That is why we keep this part of the tail on.


So we remove that. Grab a cloth. This part of the skin not that


tasty. For a whole Dover sole we are have to prepare it.


Oh, look at that. It reminds me of waxing my legs! For Lady Gaga, she


has a handbag there! Remove that bit off as well and we can take the


head off. Yes.


Remove that head. So chop it through. A nice sharp


knife and straight through. Is it difficult to fillet these or


is it a time thing. It is easy to fillet.


Mackerel is too. Now, salt, pepper, often you would


not put flour on this, but it working really well.


So get hot oil in the pan. As we are going to cook this whole. We


place the whole fish in the flour. If you have it whole, you would


cook it similar to what I am doing now. We start off with the oil


first of all. Then you start cooking it with the butter and


stuff. Sorry, I'm in the way. I'll point


it over here! What's that now? That is more oil? Just normal? Yes, you


can use olive oil or rapeseed oil is very good. Seer it off, then are


going to add a few nobs of butter. If we add the butter too early, it


will burn. So add the oil and colour it a little bit.


Then we add the butter. So the butter is going to give it a nice


flavour while it is cooking, see? Hmm! Now, at that point, we just go


round... Yes, the bump. So it is starting to brown now.


So you get a nice colour and we flip it over.


Lovely. That is what we are looking for.


Now at this point, take the whole pan and straight in the oven. So


with the butter, with everything else, it speeds up the cooking time.


Don't transfer it on to a tray if you don't have to. That goes in


there for five minutes. In the meantime we have the gnocchi. That


is what Will is making it is baked potatoes. The skin is off. Put


through a ricer. You definitely need one of these it makes the best


mashed potato. Is it lazy mashed potato No, we


have to do all the work! Then with the potato you need eggs and


parsley. Now, the artichokes we are cooking that with this.


This is the choritzo. That goes in there. In the pan.


So, the artichokes go in. A little bit of oil.


Yep. And we start them off. We take this


Ibericochoritzo. So, quite chunky pieces? Yes, you


want the flavour from that. There is no point in cutting this too


small. This is fantastic stuff. You can find it here? Yes, right


here. There are lots of Spanish suppliers now.


Tomatoes... Score the tops of them and put them in boiling water.


That's that. Straight in there. We are basically going to conkas the


tomatoes, to remove the skin. -- concasse. You put them in


boiling water for ten seconds, the skin starts to come off.


So, in that pan we are going to add sherry.


Stand back a bit. Sherry? A bit of sherry.


Look at that! Some chicken stock, even though this is a fish dish we


put a bit of chicken stock in there. Cook that down.


Take the tomatoes out. See the skin coming off? Yes.


Take them over to the guys here and they will concasse the tomatoes.


That is deseeding them? Yes, deskinned and deseeded and diced.


There are the gnocchi. They are lovely.


You can freeze the gnocchi. But they go straight in. You can


flavour them with whatever you want, saffron or whatever you want.


Straight in the boiling salted water. As soon as they come to the


surface they are cooked. Now, if I can have my tomatoes


carefully done as well. We turn that up now. The reason we


put the lid on is to cook the artichokes. That is the key. If are


preparing this, with the artichokes, they go brown.


That's when they are ready? When they go brown? Well, no, if you


leave them out, they oxidise like the apples. So once they are peeled


they have a habit of oxidising. So see that, the gnocchi has come to


the top? So quick. Grab a plate.


That's it. Thank you very much.


So, these can them come out. They are the little gnocchi.


They look lovely. Now, this is cooking away.


Artichokes don't take long to cook about four or five minutes. They


have nice flavour from the sausage. Some double cream.


Stop taking the mick of how I pronounce things. I mentioned what


I said to the there are manager, you have put weight on, you've been


eating pork pies! So we have a little bit of chervil and chives.


Now, the tomatoes in, the gnocchi in. You can almost have this as a


dish on its own. This is good enough to eat as it is


like that. It looks incredible.


Salt, pepper. Our fish is out. That can go straight on our plate, will.


This oil from the sausage is amazing.


So, that is it. A nice hot oven is what you want


for this. A touch of lemon juice on there. I will season it up for you.


That is a monster of a fish. Beautiful.


It is lovely, isn't it? Then you have this.


And so quick. That is the key, well it is with


three of us cooking! That would take me all day! It is, you can do


this dish with any fish, it doesn't have to be Dover sole, but the idea


if you have all of that with the herbs on the top, guys.


Wow! That looks amazing. A nice and easy dish. Careful of


the bones in there. There you have it. My Dover sole with choritzo and


artichokes. Dive into that. You have to see if that is food


heaven. It looks like it is! Tell us what you reckon.


Now, all of this waste from the artichokes, you can't do anything


with it, but you get an amazing flavour from the artichokes.


What would you do with the spare artichokes? You have to get rid of


it. You can't really use it. Now, to go with this, Peter has chosen a


Stork's Tower Tempranilllo Shiraz Rose 2009.


Ignore the colour. It is fine. �4.99. I preferred this one to the


one we had before. Dive into that. What do you reckon?


The gnocchi is nice! Thank you very much! Delicious! Nice? Very, very


delicious. What it is, it is the perfect pasta sauce as well.


Thank you very much. Best of luck for September. That is all today on
