    Yuzu Tartlet with Yuzu Gel, Meringues & Orange Sesame Tuiles

    My Yuzu meringue tartlet is a take on my favourite desert using my favourite zingy Yuzu curd. It is a refreshing end to the meal with buttery pastry, zingy curd and decadently creamy italian meringue , the orange sesame tuile adds a textural garnish.

    Fillet of Duck Breast with Black Pudding Scotched Quail Egg, Pan Roasted Honey Glazed Carrots, Cider Fondant Potato with Sloe and Apple Meat Jus & Roasted Hazelnuts

    I wanted to create a dish that I felt represented me and where I am from, but also my journey through cooking, so far. I wanted to create a recipe that was seasonal and I know that I would enjoy. All the ingredients in this dish that I have chosen are best in January/ February and are locally sourced.

  • Greek Orange Cake

    Greek Orange Cake

    I believe the Mediterranean diet is a healthy diet which uses simple, locally produced ingredients. The abundance of sun and good soil results in wonderful ingredients such as olives and tomatoes. Much of the meat is produced by small ethical farmers. Greece produces the best yogurt!

  • Banana Magic Cake

    Banana Magic Cake

    The dessert is a moist rich banana cake - I love the flavour of banana and should be a light finish to the meal.
