All for one, one for all by Olivia Barry

All for one, one for all by Olivia Barry - this was Olivia's meat dish for her appearance on the South West heat of Great British Menu.

One of the core principles of the NHS is that it is freely and readily available for all. This dish will be created with ingredients that are also readily available to all.

The elements of the dish are; beef cheek and hanger steak, bone marrow smoked mash, carrot puree and baby carrots and grated ox heart.

All the cuts are easily accessible and would have been when the NHS was first formed, but cooked well are a celebration-worthy.
