1
To make the stock syrup, bring the sugar and water to the boil. Reduce to roughly 1/3 of the volume, then pass through a sieve and chill until needed
  • 300g of caster sugar
  • 260ml of water
2
To make the soda bread, heat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4. Mix all the ingredients except the butter together and knead to form a dough
  • 200g of wholemeal flour
  • 200g of self-raising flour
  • 2 tsp sodium bicarbonate

  • 150g of wheatgerm
  • 150g of bran

Cover the dough and rest for 5-10 minutes. Shape into 2 loaves and place on 2 baking sheets

Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes until golden, then remove and leave to cool on a wire rack. Thinly slice the bread, then cut out small, bite-sized rounds with a cookie cutter
5
Brush the rounds with butter and bake in the oven until slightly crisp - this should only take a few minutes
  • 50g of butter, melted

Bring the stock syrup to the boil and add the ginger. Cook until soft, then drain off the syrup. Fry the ginger in a small pan of hot oil, then remove, cool and dry
  • 100g of fresh ginger
  • sunflower oil
7
Peel the grapes by sliding a small espresso spoon under the skin and working evenly around the grape. Cut in half neatly, then chill until needed
  • 16 red grapes

  • 400g of foie gras
  • 6g of pink salt
  • 6g of caster sugar
  • 8ml of port
  • 8ml of Madeira
  • 8ml of brandy
9
Cook in the water bath at 63°C for 3-4 minutes. Remove from the bag, place in a bowl set over ice and whisk until the foie gras is nice and glossy
