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."

Mascarpone

Roast veal fillet with crisp potato galettes and tonnato sauce


You'll need

2 heads of garlic 5 anchovy fillets, finely chopped 1½ cups flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped 2 lemons, finely grated rind only 50 ml extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra for drizzling 2 veal fillets (about 750gm each), trimmed   Tonnato sauce 2 egg yolks 95 gm canned tuna in oil, drained 200 ml olive oil 1 lemon, juice and finely grated rind only   Crisp potato galettes 4 Sebago potatoes, thinly sliced on a mandolin 120 ml clarified butter

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 180C. Wrap garlic in foil and roast until tender (40-50 minutes). When cool enough to handle, squeeze cloves out. Discard skins and process half the garlic with anchovy, parsley, rind and oil in a food processor to a smooth paste, season to taste and set aside.
  • 02
  • Lay veal fillets smooth-side down and thickly brush with parsley mixture. Sandwich fillets together, with thickest parts at opposite ends, to form a cylinder. Tie at intervals with kitchen string. Wrap in plastic wrap, rolling to form a tight cylinder, refrigerate until firm (4-5 hours).
  • 03
  • For tonnato sauce, process egg yolks, tuna and remaining roast garlic in a food processor to a smooth paste. With motor running, add oil in a thin stream, then lemon juice and rind, season to taste, set aside. Makes about 250ml.
  • 04
  • Meanwhile, for galettes, increase oven to 200C. Dip each potato slice in clarified butter, shake to remove excess, then slightly overlap slices to form eight 12cm-diameter circles on oven trays. Season to taste and bake until golden and crisp (15-20 minutes). Set aside.
  • 05
  • Unwrap veal, place on a baking paper-lined oven tray and roast until browned and medium rare (25-30 minutes). Remove from oven, cover with foil, rest for 10 minutes in a warm place. Heat galettes in oven. Thickly slice veal and serve with tonnato, galettes and asparagus and watercress salad.
