1
Begin the sorbet the day before, or at least 8 hours before intending to serve. Spread the chopped rhubarb out across a flat tray and place in the freezer. Leave for at least 4 hours until frozen solid
  • 500g of rhubarb, washed and roughly chopped
2
For the sorbet sugar syrup combine the glucose, sugar and water in a small pan and place over a medium heat. Bring to the boil and allow the sugar to dissolve into the liquid, then remove from the heat and leave to cool
  • 50g of glucose
  • 150g of sugar
  • 200g of water
3
Combine the frozen rhubarb and cooled syrup together in a blender and blitz together to form a purée. Pass the purée through a fine sieve and stir through the stabiliser, then transfer to an ice cream machine and churn as per the manufacturer's instructions. Freeze until ready to serve
  • 50g of sorbet stabiliser
4
Preheat a water bath to 61°C
5
To make the rhubarb gel, peel the rhubarb and place the peelings in a pan with the sugar and water over a medium heat. Reserve the remaining rhubarb for the batons
  • 500g of rhubarb, washed and roughly chopped
  • 250ml of water
  • 180g of sugar
6
Bring to the boil and simmer until the sugar dissolves into the liquid, then remove the syrup from the heat and allow to cool and infuse. Once cool, strain through a sieve to remove the peelings and weigh out 500ml of the syrup into a clean pan. Reserve the remaining syrup for the batons
7
Bring the rhubarb syrup to the boil over a medium heat and stir in the agar agar. Allow to simmer for 2 minutes, whisking continuously, then pour into a deep baking tray and allow to set for 20 minutes
  • 5g of agar agar
8
For the batons, cut the peeled rhubarb into 12cm lengths and divide between 2 vacuum bags, or more if required (allowing even spacing will help the rhubarb retain its shape). Divide the reserved rhubarb syrup between the bags and seal in a chamber sealer. Place in the water bath and cook for 10 minutes
9
Once the rhubarb gel has set, cut it roughly into chunks and transfer to a blender. Blitz to form a smooth gel, reserving in a piping bag until ready to serve
10
Once the batons have cooked through immediately remove the bags and place them in a bowl of iced water to cool. Once cool, drain the pieces from the syrup and, slicing at an angle, trim the batons into 4cm pieces. Reserve in the fridge until ready to serve
11
Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4
12
To make the crumble, place the butter and sugar in a small pan over a low heat and gently melt together. While these melt, place the oats in a food processor and pulse briefly to create a coarse flour
  • 125g of butter
  • 125g of dark brown sugar
  • 150g of porridge oats
13
Mix together the oats, flour and dried spices in a large bowl, then mix in the melted butter and sugar. Stir through the grated ginger and turn the mixture out on to a large piece of baking paper
  • 100g of self-raising flour
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 pinch of mixed spice
  • 2 knobs of stem ginger, finely grated
14
Flatten the mixture slightly and place another piece of baking paper over the top. Roll out to 1cm thick, then remove the top sheet of paper. Transfer to a baking tray and bake for 20–25 minutes until golden brown
15
Meanwhile, mix together all the ingredients for the rice pudding in a large bowl. Place over a pan of barely simmering water (being careful not to let the bowl touch the water) and cook for 20–30 minutes, stirring regularly, until the rice is soft and creamy
  • 60g of pudding rice
  • 425ml of milk
  • 140ml of double cream
  • 30g of sugar
  • 1 vanilla pod
16
Discard the vanilla pod and transfer to a clean bowl. Cover with cling film to prevent a skin from forming and reserve until ready to serve
17
Remove the sheet of crumble from the oven and leave to cool a little. Break into rough pieces and blitz briefly in a food processor to create a fine crumble. Transfer to an airtight container amd reserve until ready to serve
18
To serve, pipe dots of the rhubarb gel across each serving plate, followed by quenelles of the set rice pudding. Divide the rhubarb batons between the plates, scattering over the ginger crumble. Place an extra teaspoon of crumble in the centre of each plate and top with a quenelle of rhubarb sorbet and baby red chard leaves to garnish
  • 1 handful of baby red chard
