Add the stock and cook for 10 minutes, then add the cream and sugar and cook for a further 10 minutes
  • 65ml of brown chicken stock
  • 40ml of whipping cream
  • 1 tsp caster sugar

Blend in a food processor, adding the water and a dash of salt to season. Pass through a fine sieve. Place a layer of cling film in direct contact with the surface of the cream, set aside to cool
  • 40ml of water
  • salt to season
6
Meanwhile, soak the sweetbreads in cold water for 5 minutes and rinse off thoroughly. Cut into small bite size pieces

Bring a medium sized saucepan of lightly salted water to a simmer. Add the sweetbreads for 20 seconds and refresh in a bowl of iced water. Drain and set aside on an absorbent towel

Set the deep-fryer to 180°C or alternatively bring a medium pot of the oil up to 180°C (making sure the pot is ¾ full – adjusting with more or less oil where necessary)
  • 600ml of vegetable oil
