Method

For the tomato ice cream, blend the tomatoes with ginger, chilli, garlic, salt, sugar and a dash of sherry vinegar. Pass the tomatoes through a sieve and churn in an ice cream maker. Leave to set in the freezer.
Soak the bone marrow in salt for one hour then pop the marrow out from the center of the bone. Dry the marrow and season with pepper; cook the marrow for the same time as the hearts. Trim all fat and sinew from the hearts and marinade in salt,
pepper and curry oil for two hours. Very lightly sear the hearts for one minute on each side in a very hot pan. Slice thinly to serve.
For the garnishes, blend the peas with the vegetable stock to make a thick, smooth puree and season with salt, tabasco and lime juice to taste. Dust the lotus roots with seasoned flour and fry until golden brown.
To present the dish, thinly slice and season the radishes and cucumber and arrange on to the plate. Add the mushy peas and stack the tendons, bone marrow and crispy lotus root. Add a quenelle of tomato ice cream on top and garnish with mixed
herbs.
Drizzle with maple syrup to serve.
