Curtis Stone's strawberry, elderflower and brioche summer puddings

"Think of this dessert as a deconstructed version of a summer pudding, with thinly sliced strawberries macerated in elderflower liqueur and layered between slices of brioche," says Stone. "A dollop of whipped cream on top is a cooling counterpoint to the floral flavours."

You'll need

½ telegraph cucumber, seeds removed, cut into 1cm dice 85 ml tonic water 1 skinned and boned kingfish top loin (about 1kg) To serve: salad burnet (see note)   Gin and tonic granita ½ telegraph cucumber, seeds removed, roughly chopped 15 ml Hendricks gin 10 ml sugar syrup (see note) 85 ml tonic water   Gin cure 1 tbsp juniper berries 5 gm fresh ginger, grated ¼ cinnamon quill 4 gm liquorice root (see note), finely chopped Finely grated rind of ½ pink grapefruit, lemon and lime 30 gm each caster sugar   Juniper mascarpone 100 gm mascarpone ½ bunch chives, finely chopped 2 golden shallots, finely diced Finely grated rind of ½ lemon 1 tsp juniper berries, finely crushed with mortar and pestle

Method

  • 01
  • For gin and tonic granita, blend cucumber, gin and 10ml sugar syrup in a blender until smooth. Pass through a fine sieve, stir in tonic water and transfer to a 20cm x 30cm shallow metal tray and freeze, stirring and scraping occasionally with a fork, until ice crystals form (4-5 hours).
  • 02
  • Combine cucumber and tonic in a bowl and refrigerate for flavours to develop (2-3 hours), then strain and discard liquid.
  • 03
  • For gin cure, process all ingredients except sugar in a food processor until fine (2-3 minutes), then stir in sugar and salt to taste. Place kingfish in a non-reactive container and pat the cure mix evenly on both sides. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours for flavours to cure.
  • 04
  • For juniper mascarpone, mix ingredients in a bowl, season to taste and refrigerate until needed.
  • 05
  • Wipe excess cure from kingfish with paper towels and pat dry. Cut kingfish into 5mm slices, arrange on a platter, top with granita, diced cucumber and salad burnet and serve with juniper mascarpone.

Note Salad burnet, a herb that tastes similar to cucumber, is available from select herb sellers; if it's unavailable, substitute a mild micro-cress. For sugar syrup, heat equal parts sugar and water in a saucepan until sugar dissolves, then cool. Liquorice root is available at Asian supermarkets.
