Happy Easter

These delicious lamb sliders are a quick and economic alternative to roast lamb and are fantastic grilled outdoors on the BBQ. 

SPRING LAMB SLIDERS WITH ASPARAGUS, QUAILS EGGS AND GREMOLATA MAYONNAISE 

Lamb Sliders

500g fresh lamb mince, preferably organic (we use lamb from Piper's Farm see link below)

2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

3 tbs chopped fresh rosemary

2 anchovy fillets, chopped small  

1 tsp sea salt flakes and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Sunflower or groundnut oil 

Gremolata mayonnaise                                                                                                                      

100ml mayonnaise, preferably homemade, but a good shop bought one will be fine

Grated rind of 1 organic unwaxed lemon

1 clove garlic, finely chopped

3 tbs finely chopped flat leaf parsley

Pinch sea salt flakes

To Serve

10 fresh (English) asparagus (plus more to serve if liked)

10 small tomatoes, halved

10 quails eggs

Olive oil

Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

10 tall cocktail sticks

5 brioche buns, halved 

Combine all ingredients for the lamb sliders in a large bowl, divide and shape into 10 equal sized patties.

Mix together all ingredients for the mayonnaise and set aside.

Steam the asparagus for 2 minutes, refresh under cold water, cut in halves lengthways and drizzle with a good olive oil and season lightly with salt and pepper. Halve the tomatoes and carefully thread onto cocktail sticks with the asparagus (see image below)

Grill the brioche halves until lightly toasted, keep warm

Brush each lamb pattie with a little olive oil and fry (or bbq) for approx 3 minutes per side, keep warm whilst you fry the quails eggs.

To assemble, spread some of the mayonnaise onto each brioche half, top with lamb pattie and fried egg and secure with the tomato/asparagus laden cocktail stick. ENJOY!

A recipe for Autumn

Cooler, fresher days and decidedly chilly evenings call for something aromatic and warming just like this delicious warm duck salad ...

 

Asian duck salad with roasted marinated butternut squash

Serves 4

4 free range duck thighs
Light olive oil
Sea salt flakes
Freshly ground black pepper

Butternut squash salad

1 medium squash, deseeded, halved and cut into thick slices

Dressing

Juice & finely grated rind of 2 limes (organic if possible)
1 red chilli, halved, deseeded and chopped
3 spring onions, shredded
3 tbsp fish sauce
4 tbsp roasted sesame oil
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp runny honey
Large bunch fresh coriander
Large bunch fresh mint
2-3 tbsp pumpkin seeds lightly roasted

Set oven to 175 c

Heat the olive oil in a large oven proof pan and brown the duck thighs all over. Season with salt and pepper.
Transfer to the oven and roast for approximately 35 minutes or until cooked through. Cool.

Increase oven temperature to 225 c

Place the squash slices in a single layer on a baking tray lined with parchment paper, drizzle with a little olive oil and roast for 25 minutes until nicely browned around the edges.
Whisk together all the dressing ingredients, saving a handful of each of herbs for serving.
Shred the duck meat into a large serving bowl, add the squash and pour over the dressing. Mix well (clean hands work best) and leave to stand at room temperature for at least 20 minutes before sprinkling with remaining herbs, the roasted seeds and a little more fish sauce if desired.

Celebrate the unique charm and spirit of Scandinavia

Our friends at Skandinavisk, creators of our favourite candles and diffusers, have perfectly captured the essence and spirit of this very special part of the world.

It makes me long for those long summer nights, the warm summer breeze by the ocean, the deserted islands of the archipelago and birchwood forests, sitting around a bonfire with friends....
