Take the lamb and bash it out to 2mm thick. Blend the black pudding to a paste and spread it thinly across the lamb. Roll into a spiral, cover in cling film and slow cook at 62 degrees for 8 hours. When it’s done, rest, before pan frying for 1 minute until you get a good colour.
Carefully remove the skin from the leek. Blanche, season and roll out flat. Place the lamb on the leek and roll up.
Pencil fillet

Wilt a handful of fresh spinach in the steamer

Lamb jus:
Sauté 1 banana shallot and a handful of thyme leaves with butter. Add the Essential Cuisine Lamb Glace and reduce to coat back of a spoon. Then add a teaspoon of redcurrant jelly. Finish with a healthy portion of butter to give a nice shine to the sauce.
Scoop out the potatoes and boil for 2 minutes. Blanche the peas then sauté them with the potatoes and butter until the potatoes start to go a light golden colour.
Steam the baby carrots for 4 minutes.
For the pea puree, sauté the shallot with garlic in oil. In a separate pan, add Essential Cuisine Vegetable Stock to 100mls of water, add to the shallots and garlic and bring to the boil. Add the peas to the mix and cook for 4-5 minutes.
Drain the peas, keeping the stock, and mix the pea and onion mix in a blender, once pureed, return the mixture to the pot, and add stock slowly until it’s the right consistency. Add butter, season with salt and pepper. Pass through a chinois.
