1
Start the dish by soaking the sweetbreads in lightly salted water for 1-2 hours - this will help to remove any bitterness and impurities. When finished, rinse thoroughly and soak in clean, cold water for 10-15 minutes. Pat dry and refrigerate until ready to cook
  • 400g of sweetbreads
  • salt
2
To prepare the Jerusalem artichoke purée, place the Jerusalem artichokes and lemon juice in a pan of cold water. Bring to the boil, cook until very tender and drain
  • 400g of Jerusalem artichoke, peeled and roughly diced
  • 1 lemon, juice only
3
Place the artichokes in a food processor with the butter and cream and blitz until very smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper and keep warm
  • 40g of butter
  • 40ml of double cream
  • salt
  • pepper

Place a pan over a high heat and add a dash of vegetable oil. Roast the salsify root until dark golden brown all over, reduce the heat then add a splash of Madeira to deglaze the pan
  • 4 batons of salsify, peeled and cut into 3
  • vegetable oil
  • Madeira
5
Allow the salsify to cook slowly, adding some stock if necessary if it’s drying out. Set aside until required
  • chicken stock, or vegetable stock
6
Preheat the oven to 220˚C/gas mark 8

To cook the lamb, season the meat all over. Meanwhile, place a pan over a medium-high heat. Once hot, add the lamb skin-side down and allow the fat to render out of the meat. Once golden, turn and colour evenly on all sides. Add a good knob of butter, allow the butter to foam and baste the lamb with the butter
  • salt
  • 1 knob of butter
  • 4 lamb rumps, 180g each

Place the pan into the oven and allow to cook for 6-8 minutes for a medium rare finish - or 55-60˚C when tested with a meat thermometer
9
Remove the pan from the oven and allow the lamb to rest for 6-8 minutes

Add some olive oil to a separate pan and place over a medium heat. Add the wild mushrooms, sauté for 1-2 minutes then add the roasted salsify and a small knob of butter. Season to taste and finish with the freshly chopped parsley, mint and marjoram
  • olive oil
  • 400g of wild mushrooms
  • 1 knob of butter
  • 1 tsp parsley, chopped
  • 1 tsp mint, chopped
  • 1 tsp marjoram, chopped

To cook the sweetbreads, heat a dash of vegetable oil in a pan and place on a high heat. Ensure the sweetbreads are completely dry, place in the hot pan and colour all over. Add a knob of butter, allow to foam and baste the butter over the sweetbreads. Season with salt and set aside in a warm place
