My first recipe melts in the mouth and because the oven does most of the work it's a cinch to make slow cooked fiery lamb cooking's all about being bold and adventurous and this dish is exciting because it's slowly cooked and the longer it Cooks the more flavor something it becomes marinating the lamb first chilies we're.

Going to use a mixture of red and green take off the tops and just slice in garlic crushed don't worry about chopping these ultra fine just get it in there cooking for up to three hours.

Everything sort of Blends and almost sort of pures itself together smoked paprika it goes brilliantly well with the chilies two teaspoons thin a touch of dried oregano some little cumin seeds the blend and the fragrance that they give out is extraordinary they release a little oil.

As well and helps to tenderize the lamb touch of salt pepper cinnamon that sort of sweetens up the lamb olive oil just a tablespoon and the olive oil helps to sort of stick all those wonderful spices to the lamb Chomp in.

Just start really rubbing at this stage you can leave the lamb to marinade for anything from half an hour to overnight a lamb with spices to really penetrate the meat giving amazing results when you tuck in delicious vegetables carrots and onions and that's it sliced cigarette slicing vegetables for braising is not getting too thin you.

Slice the onions too thin they burn you've got that horrible Char taste on that slow braised braising it's just a chef's term that means cooking in liquid on a low heat making the meat incredibly moist and beautifully tender so the secret of braising is having a really nice thick durable pan.

Get that nice and hot Touch of olive oil lemon hold the bone because you're in control then into the pan you want that white fat to start rendering so it'll add more fat therefore making it a lot more flavoursome as it braises chillers cinnamon.

In mix that up and don't be scared you're not burning this you're sort of searing the lamb shanks and this is the important part right at the very beginning we're going to color on the lamb which washes off as it braises in the oven so be generous with that color vegetables in.

Wow and then a couple of Baileys so now you lift the lamb up and get the lamb sat on top of the vegetables now delays the pan with red wine the glazing means that you're you're cleaning the bottom of the pan and you're getting that amazing flavor washed off and lifted up into that sauce.

It can really transform that dish always delays then bring it to the boil and cook for about 10 minutes to reduce the wines reduced down by half now for the stock bring that stock back up to the ball and then into the oven now don't cover it when you cover it all the condensation comes off the lid your lamb becomes gray.

All this effort and that exciting spice gets washed away no lid and in the oven for three hours I slow cook on a low heat of 160 degrees gives the spices time to work and transform the meat so it's mouth-wateringly tender now look at those out on to a plate you can just see that.

Quickly like this and then you smell it again this is just unbelievable if you have spaghetti bolognese put a pinch of cinnamon in it to bring out the flavor this is one of those really special spices sour like a lemon but it has a salty aftertaste I use this anywhere for marinades to salad you.

Haven't lived unless you tried it a great example for a bitter spice would actually be a turmeric this is actually a root it grows in the ground like ginger use it very very sparingly about that much well actually color you a curry or a rice dish wonderful yellow watch your fingers you get really yellow fingers from it and then we come to the.

Hot spices one spice that I couldn't miss and that is Hungarian paprika paprika is the powdery form of a bell pepper what makes the Hungarian paprika different is that they actually cried on Vineyards it's sort of between the vines it has a sweetness and it has a sharpness to it I have it in ice cream I have it on fish I have it everywhere.

Adventurous be bold find what you like and spice up your cooking like all chefs I love the challenge of transforming classic recipes giving them a new twist to make them modern and vibrant to keep old dishes fresh and exciting it's great to get spicy my next recipe is a time-honored British.

Classic but with addition of spices it gives a new lease of Life fragrant spice rice pudding I love cooking with spices but you don't have to just cook Savory dishes using aromatics and spices across desserts takes your puddings to a completely different level first off our spices this is a fresh.

Vanilla pot fragrant and packed full of flavor use the back of the knife and flatten it that removes all those little seeds off the skin of the vanilla pod take your knife slice down the middle and then when you open that up the smell is incredible take the tip of the knife and you scrape inside and look at all those seeds dying to come out.

That is incredible there are thousands of seeds still ingrained to the Pod so put them in to the casserole cardamom powerful spicy take two little pods place your knife on top lightly crack them cracking the cardamom pods helps release all the amazing flavor cloves because of that kind of.

Aniseed flavor with a lot of depth one two three cinnamon stick snap and in just smelling that level of fragrance you can imagine what the rice pudding is in the taste of turn on the heat lightly toast those spices just a couple of seconds and what's going to happen is just going to sort of enhance those.

Spices in a way that it just draws out an even more powerful fragrance coconut milk in sugar two tablespoons milk and then a couple of tablespoons of cream bring it slowly to the boil to allow the.

Flavors to infuse and this rice pudding reminds me of my time in India where I got really into that chai tea fragrance because it was just so delicious and so comforting take a lime in the lime just cuts through the richness of the coconut gives it that nice little bit of acidity goes.

Fantastically well with the cinnamon and that fresh vanilla nice have a taste now let's come up to the boil give it a nice little clean around the outside and then with the rice use 200 grams of pudding rice don't wash it beforehand because the starch helps thicken the rice pudding in the oven.

And just turn that down to a light simmer and the pudding rice starts to open up and it absorbs all that coconut vanilla cardamom clove and cinnamon bring up to the ball gently and cook it out for three to five minutes bullying it rapidly the rice opens up and it goes into mush I want to keep.

That nice texture of that sort of fragrant rice pudding on a gentle simmer next a little luxury I'm going to show you how I take this simple delicious aromatic rice pudding to a completely different level here's what I do take two egg yolks separating them and give that a really nice whisk.

Two nice tablespoons of mascarpone cheese we started into the egg yolks so it's nice and smooth it's almost like finishing the rice pudding in a delicious custard turn off the gas add that into the rice pudding what happens it starts to enrich and really thicken this.

Rice pudding and takes it to a completely different level the rice is still not cooked started to go nice and soft you can just see how it's opening up but looks like Rich aromatic lava bubbling away finally Great Mall Citrus zest the lime on top.

Roasted caramelized lime zest on top of a rice pudding is phenomenal then put it in the oven for 15 minutes at 200 degrees to finish cooking the rice and develop the intensely aromatic flavors look at that an incredibly fragrant rice pudding how.

Beautiful does that look spices are a brilliant way of helping classic dishes come alive I'll guarantee you'll never ever have had a rice pudding like this before next my trick is the trays and kitchen tips first how to zest the lemon the important part is not to zest any of.

The pith watch the following technique and I'll show you how we've got these original graters really important when we use this this is the fine zester not the big rough one not the one for slicing and not the other one for grating this little one here onto a plate because it's always easier to lift off from the plate than it is.

The board and the most important thing about zesting a lemon is nice long strokes but twisting the lemon round every time we go down we twist same with the orange and same with the lime tap if you go too far let me just show you look you've got.

That white bitter pith that destroys the wonderful zesty flavor and look that's what we're looking for there this really nice vibrant lemon zest delicious garlic is a key ingredient in so many spicy dishes my tip for finely chopping and mincing is add a pinch of salt for abrasion which helps break the fibers of the garlic down for a much better result.

But getting the most out of root Ginger simply remove the skin using a teaspoon it's easier than using a knife and you can get around the tricky bits or just keep the skin on and give it a good wash never throw out vanilla pods there's a ton of flavor left in the skin stick inside jars of sugar and leave to infuse great to sprinkle on cakes biscuits or.

Hitting the bottom of the pan without tomato puree and we call it cooking house the tomato puree otherwise it just goes in there raw and it gives this sort of tartness to the braised short ribs red wine in don't use an expensive bottle of red wine there's no need.

Bring the wine up to the boil and reduce it this Burns off the alcohol and concentrates the flavor it makes a big difference when you reduce the red wine down by half because it gives that nice dark Rich intensity look at my garlic that is just gonna sweeten everything up incredible stock in.

Beef stock perfect chicken stock fine just to about an inch underneath the beef short ribs bring it up to the ball I can all that flavor as the beef ribs slow cook cover them so they braise from the bottom and steam from the top into the oven two and a half hours 170 to 180 degrees and she goes.

The great thing about slow cooking is you do most of the work in advance and then put your feet up five or ten minutes before the beef short ribs come out of the oven start your garnish this is light cured pancetta I want nice thick lardons nice big thick sticks of crispy bacon.

And when it comes to buying them there's one expert green grocer who's a Fountain of Knowledge Burma Marcus Fred Foster started off on the dead store in primary coat really you get a salad stall with over 20 years of experience you could actually write his own mushroom encyclopedia mushrooms as soon as you pick them the.

Moisture starts coming out of them so you need to buy them when they're fresh certain products you smell for flavor and they tend to be fruits mushrooms don't smell nice at all they smell kind of metallic really so you have to use your eyes as your guide of what you buy with mushrooms really really important wild mushrooms.

Be great if it was old although also found wild oyster mushrooms are more commonly cultivated along with similar type the Enoki their delicate taste is grain salads and soups finally Fred saved the best until last and of course the Pinnacle is the Truffle they are really really short after the smell is so intense that smell.

Very healthy first oven on 200 degrees and then salt pepper now the salt will help to extract the water out of the fat nonstick pan no oil but start the duck breasts in the pan cold skin side down it feels and sounds a little bit weird but if we put them into.

A cold pan and turn the heat up gradually it starts to release the fat if we put them into a hot pan it seals them in and the fat stays in there we want to render that fat down 90 of that duck breast will be cooked on its skin keeps the duck nice and moist but more importantly it stays crispy once the fat comes out turn the duck.

Over nice high hot heat seal the duck now they're going in the oven skin side down 200 six to eight minutes if your Pan's got a plastic handle out then transfer the duck breast onto a tray but make sure you put the tray into the oven to get hot first.

Cooking duck is like cooking a piece of beef and you can't slice it piping hot all the goodness Runs Out just quickly turn it over push your fingers in there and it's slightly resistant but still quite bouncy and that confirms they're quite pink in the center but the important part now is leaving that to rest let.

Nice crispy skin on top and a beautiful Clump roasted dark all the white fat gone nice crispy skin and absolutely delicious another slow cooking tip is when slow cooking stews and casseroles fat will rise to the surface to get rid of any excess oils my tip is to remove them with kitchen paper before serving.

This also works brilliantly on gravies and sauces many great slow cook dishes start by Browning the meat as the meat Cooks lots of flavors get stuck to the pan to get it into your sauce deglaze with wine stock or vinegar never add soft herbs at the beginning of slow cooking they're all too delicate.

The tip is to add them at the end for that Hill fresh flavor and vibrant color a great tip when frying fish is to always fry skin side down to keep it crispy and always lay the foods away from you when adding to the pan to prevent hot oil from splashing towards you.

Caramel is just stopping it from overcooking lovely take that off the gas another butter in there gently whisking the butter is cooling the camel down you'll see it changing color to like a cafe Olay.

Next add a dug of the balsamic vinegar beautiful for that nice dark richness of a camel a little touch of water in there that way the camel doesn't go too thick now put the camel back on the heat take a fix and sort of place them in gently lovely.
