Method

BREAD CRISP
Take your sliced bread and trim off the crusts, then put it through the pasta machine taking it down to 1mm.trim the bread and cut strips 1 ½ cm in width then brush with egg yolk and sprinkle the sesame seeds liberally. Take your ring which has been sprayed with onespray and wrap the strip of bread around making sure you get a good seal on both ends. Place in a pre-heated oven at 160c and cook for approx 12 mins until golden brown.
SCOTCH LAMB COSOMME
In a hot casserole dish place your seasoned Scotch Lamb shin and roast until golden brown then drain off any excess fat then place the rest of the ingredients except the stock in the pan and roast for a further 10 minutes then add your chicken stock cover with a lid and place in a pre-heated oven at 160 c for approx 90 minutes
After 90 minutes take out your Scotch Lamb shin (the meat should fall of the bone) pick all the meat from the bone and set aside for later as you will need this for your garnish, strain the rest of the stock through muslin and chill.
To clarify the stock take all the ingredients and blitz for 1 minute, place your stock in a heavy bottomed saucepan add your clarification whisking continuously, bring to a gentle boil until it forms a frothy cake, leave to simmer for 10 minutes then take off the heat, pass the liquid through muslin using a ladle and chill.
SWEAT BREAD AND KIDNEY PARCEL
Blanch the savoy cabbage and refresh in ice cold water.
Blend the chicken with salt until smooth in texture; fold in your semi whipped cream.
Dice the kidney to ½ cm in diameter and do the same with the blanched sweetbreads.in a frying pan add the butter wait until its frothing then add your kidneys cook for 2minutes before adding your sweetbreads and garlic, cook until golden brown then deglaze with your bandy season and set aside to cool. When cool add to the chicken, mix well, put the mixture in a piping bag.
Take your savoy cabbage and trim the centre stalk out then take your 4 leafs and pat dry then with a rolling pin roll the savoy until flat, lay 2 layers of cling film on your chopping board and cut into four squares place each leaf onto this then pipe your kidney and sweetbread mixture, fold your savoy around the mixture trimming off any excess, fold your cling film from each corner and roll tightly until you get a perfect sphere then tie a knot to keep the shape. To cook place the parcel in a 65c water bath for 15 to 20 mins.
GARNISH
Salfrino the carrot and courgette and blanch and refresh in ice cold water.
Cut the celery, shallot and leeks into ½ cm dice then sweat them all off until soft but with no colour.
In a large mixing bowl place the hot pearl barley, concasse, hot picked lamb shin, mint, parsley and the cooked shallot, leek and celery then add enough jus just to bind the mixture. Adjust seasoning.
Place the mixture in 4 tins leaving a gap at the top of ½ a cm, around the outside of the ring place the salfrino of courgette and carrot.
To finish put the parsnip puree in the mould and smooth off with a spatula.
Remove the garnish from the tin and place in the centre of the bowl then get the bread ring and use the savoy parcel as a weight to fix in place. Garnish with a borage leave and mircro mint.
Place the hot lamb consommé in a jug to be poured at the table.
