  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 2 sprigs of rosemary

Remove the lamb belly from the saucepan, carefully reserving the lamb stock for the gravy. Sandwich the lamb belly between two flat trays lined with silicone paper and transfer to the fridge, placing a heavy object on top. Leave the lamb belly to press for 24 hours

For the faggots, combine the minced lamb, lamb liver, egg, cream and marjoram in a bowl and mix well. Divide into four even-sized balls and wrap each faggot in a piece of pig's caul, taking care to overlap the caul across the join

For the rosemary sauce, heat the oil in a medium saucepan and brown the onion. Add the tomato and cook until soft, then add the rosemary and the lamb stock. Bring to the boil, skim off the fat and simmer until reduced to a sauce-like consistency. Pass the sauce through a fine sieve and keep warm

For the lamb rump, add the rapeseed oil to a frying pan and bring to a high heat. Caramelise the lamb rump until golden all over, then remove from the heat and add the garlic and rosemary to the pan.

  • 1/2 garlic clove
  • 1 sprig of rosemary
  • 1 tbsp of rapeseed oil

Transfer to a blender and add 100g of the butter, blitzing on a high speed for 4 minutes until smooth.

  • 25g of unsalted butter
  • 1 pinch of white pepper

16
To serve, spoon a generous portion of mashed potato into the middle of each plate and pipe several dots of the carrot purée around it.
