Acklam Hall share an elegant and warming winter recipe

Salt the pork belly for three hours, wash off, pat dry then add to a deep tray. Cover with duck fat and thyme, then cook at 100C for eight hours. Take out, then press overnight.

For the Scotch egg, mix together the herbs and sausage meat, cook the quail eggs for one minute and 30 seconds in boiling water, then put them into iced, heavily-vinegared water. Leave for half an hour to make them easier to peel. Then make your scotch egg, using 15g of sausage meat each then pané and chill.

For the dressing, mix together the oils, vinegar, mustard and sugar in a blender for one minute until emulsified. Roast off the diced pancetta, then add to the dressing. Dice half an apple then add to the dressing.

Bake two potatoes until cooked, then pass through a drum sieve, add butter and cream, and reduce until smooth. Season to taste.

Blanch the cavo nero for one minute in boiling water, then warm through with butter and season ready to plate.
