Marinated Pheasant Breast with Pickled Blackberries
Tender and juicy pheasant breasts marinated in rapeseed, mustard and thyme. Lightly pickled blackberries, creamy celeriac puree, olive oil roasted potato slices.
Marinate the breasts in herb infused rapeseeed (or add your own herbs!) with a sprig of fresh thyme, overnight if possible. On the day, take out of marinade and fry very quickly over high heat until golden brown on the outside. Place in oven at 180 celsius (fan) for five minutes. Rest for five minutes before serving.
Pickled blackberries: Add 100g caster sugar and 150ml red wine vinegar with a bay leaf and half tablespoon whole peppercorns (pink or black) to a saucepan and dissolve sugar. Let cool. Pop 200g blackberries in and leave for at least an hour before using.
For the roasted potatoes, slice to desired thickness with skin on and toss in olive oil with sea salt and white pepper. Roast in oven until desired level of crispiness.
For the celeriac, peel and cube, boil until soft, then blitz with a little double cream until smooth.
to serve the breasts, you can use as much of the pickling juice as you wish to join the pickled blackberries or serve it on the side for people to choose how much they want with the blackberries.
Tomahawk Steak with Peppercorn Sauce by Kerry and Marek
Kimber's Farm Tomahawk Steak, seared and finished in the oven with a brandy cream peppercorn sauce.
Take one Kimber's Farm Tomahawk Steak, pat dry and leave to reach room temperature. Rub with olive oil and season liberally with salt and pepper. Place on a super hot griddle pan and sear on all sides and transfer to a preheated oven about 200°c. Cook until internal temp is 55-60°c for a post resting temp of 60-65°c for medium rare. On removing from the oven, top with a generous know of butter and cover loosely with foil. Allow to rest for 5-10mins before slicing.
Fir the peppercorn sauce - Gently heat some course ground peppercorns in a little butter, as much or as little to your taste. Add a slosh of brandy, again to your personal preference and allow the alcohol to cook off a little. Add some good quality beef stock and reduce a little to intensify. Turn down heat and whisk in some double cream. Amount dependingon how creamy you like your sauce! (I can recommend Polish sour cream as an alternative to double cream!)
Serve and enjoy!
