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."

Smoked pork terrine with Cumberland sauce


You'll need to begin this recipe a day ahead.

You'll need

2.6 kg smoked pork hocks (about 2) 10 cloves 6 allspice 2 cinnamon quills ½ tsp ground cloves ¼ tsp ground cinnamon ¼ cup finely chopped flat-leaf parsley 1 tbsp finely chopped chervil or tarragon   Cumberland sauce 30 ml vegetable oil 2 golden shallots, finely chopped 2 tbsp redcurrant jelly 150 ml port Zested rind and juice of 1 lemon and 1 orange 1 tbsp red wine vinegar ½ tsp ground ginger

Method

  • 01
  • Combine hocks in a large saucepan with cloves, allspice and cinnamon, cover generously with cold water and bring to the boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium, simmer until meat falls from the bone (2½-3 hours). Remove hocks with a slotted spoon, coarsely flake meat from the bone (discard bones, skin, fat and sinew), then coarsely chop and set aside. Strain cooking liquid through a fine sieve, reserve 500ml (discard remaining) and add ground cloves, cinnamon and herbs, season to taste and stir through meat. Spoon into a 1.5 litre-capacity terrine mould, lined with plastic wrap, and refrigerate until set (5-6 hours).
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, for Cumberland sauce, heat oil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat, add shallot and sauté until tender (4-5 minutes). Add redcurrant jelly and stir until melted, then add remaining ingredients and simmer until slightly thick (1-2 minutes). Cool completely. Makes about 125ml.
  • 03
  • Turn out terrine, cut into 1cm-thick slices and serve with Cumberland sauce.
