1
Soak the hind trotters for 12 hours in cold water, and remove any hairs with a blowtorch
  • 2 hind pig's trotters, soak
2
Preheat the oven to 190°C/gas mark 5
3
Chop the peeled carrot, onion and celery into 1cm dice, then cook in butter in a casserole pot until golden brown
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 1 large carrot, diced
  • 3 stalks of celery, diced
  • 1 knob of butter
4
Add the white wine and reduce to a glaze, then do the same with the Madeira
  • 200ml of white wine
  • 200ml of Madeira
5
Place the trotters in the pot and add the thyme, tomatoes, garlic and the stocks, then cover the casserole with greaseproof paper
  • 2 2/3 handfuls of fresh thyme
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 2 bulbs of garlic
  • 1.5l beef stock
  • 1.5l chicken stock
6
Cook in the oven for 2 hours until the trotters are golden brown and soft, then allow to cool before removing them from the pot
7
Strain the stock through a fine sieve and set aside for further use
8
Remove the soft cooked skin from the bone, discarding any pieces of cartilage
9
While still warm, use a large knife to chop the trotters into small pieces so everything starts to congeal together, then place in a dish
10
Season with salt and pepper and add the five-spice powder, parsley, Worcestershire sauce and a few spoons of the cooking stock, mixing everything together. Cover with cling film and put aside until ready to serve
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1 tsp five-spice powder
  • 2 tsp fresh parsley
  • 1 tbsp of Worcestershire sauce
11
Reduce the oven temperature to 180°C/gas mark 4

The trotter mixture should be at room temperature and soft enough to work with
13
Cut the baguette into 18 x 1cm slices, brush with olive oil and bake in the oven until golden brown
  • 1 wholemeal baguette
  • extra virgin olive oil
14
Place a small spoonful of the trotter mixture on top of each crouton, using a spoon to shape into a slight dome
15
Sprinkle the croutons with a good amount of grated Parmesan, then place them on a tray in the oven for 6-8 minutes. Transfer to a hot grill to colour the croutons (this should take less than a minute)
  • 50g of Parmesan
16
Serve on a plate with rocket leaves that have been dressed with the sherry vinegar
  • 100g of rocket
  • 1 tbsp of sherry vinegar
