Galton Blackiston shows how sticky onion marmalade and sweet peas are a fitting accompaniment to a simple grilled sausage recipe. The salty, spicy flavours of the pork sausage marry beautifully with the sweetness of the marmalade, and the crushed peas are an interesting alternative to mash.
There can't be many Michelin-starred chefs who started out selling homemade cakes, biscuits and preserves on a market stall in Rye in 1979. Yet, the quietly spoken, endearingly eccentric Galton Blackiston isn't like other chefs.
