    Sous Vide Lamb Rump with Cauliflower Couscous and Chocolate Jelly (lamb rump)

    I cooks lamb rump sous vide and serves it with some elegant accompaniments; including a sweep of cauliflower purée, cauliflower couscous with raisins, caramelised cauliflower florets and an unusual chocolate jelly.

        •    1 handful of sorrel
        •    100ml of lamb jus, warm


    1. Begin by preparing the chocolate jelly. Heat the chicken stock in a small saucepan until it reaches a simmer, then add the chocolate and whisk to melt. Mix thoroughly and leave to cool.

      • 230g of chicken stock
      • 80g of bitter chocolate, chopped, plus extra for grating

    2. Gently whisk in the agar agar, bring to the boil, while stirring, then pour into a shallow tray. Allow to cool and place in the fridge to set while you prepare the other elements.

      • 3g of agar agar

    3. For the cauliflower purée, melt the butter in a heavy-based saucepan over a medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook until soft and golden brown. Add the sliced cauliflower, cook until golden and caramelised, then add the stock. Bring to a simmer and cook until the cauliflower is soft and tender.

      • 50g of butter
      • 1/2 onion, finely sliced
      • 1 garlic clove, finely sliced
      • 1 cauliflower, washed and sliced
      • 200g of chicken stock

    4. Continue to simmer until the stock reduces by half. Add the cream and reduce by half again, remove from the heat and transfer to a blender. Blitz until smooth, pass through a fine strainer and set aside until required.

      • 300g of cream

    5. Preheat a water bath to 58.5˚C

    6. To prepare the lamb, trim off the fat and score the flesh (optional). Seal in either 1 large vac pac bag (making sure the lamb pieces are not overlapping) or 4 small bags, with extra virgin olive oil, thyme and rosemary. Cook in the water bath for 45 minutes.

      • 4 lamb rumps, 225g each
      • 4 sprigs of fresh thyme
      • 4 sprigs of fresh rosemary
      • extra virgin olive oil

    7. Meanwhile, prepare the caramelised cauliflower. Cut the cauliflower into medium-sized florets and blanch in salted boiling water until tender, for approximately 2-3 minutes. Strain and cool in iced water.

      • 1 cauliflower, washed
      • salt

    8. Drain well and set aside. Add the butter to the frying pan and make a very light beurre noisette. Add the florets, caramelise until golden brown and season.

      • 25g of butter
      • salt
      • pepper

    9. To prepare the vinaigrette, simply whisk together the vinegar and oil, season to taste and store in a squeezy bottle until required.

      • 60ml of white wine vinegar, good quality
      • 240ml of extra virgin olive oil
      • salt

    10. For the cauliflower couscous, soak the golden raisins in boiling hot water for 20-30 minutes, strain and set aside. Dice the pancetta into 6mm chunks and finely grate the cauliflower.

      • 100g of golden raisins
      • 30g of pancetta, small dice
      • 1 cauliflower, washed

    11. Place a saucepan over a medium heat and add a small dash of oil. Once the oil is hot, add the pancetta and fry until caramelised. Then, add the grated cauliflower, season to taste and finish with a good pinch of chopped chives. Finally, add a dash of the vinaigrette to taste and the raisins.

      • rapeseed oil
      • 1 pinch of chives
      • salt

    12. Halve the artichokes, spoon out any remaining flesh and season with salt. Sauté in a hot pan with a little extra virgin olive oil until golden.

      • extra virgin olive oil
      • salt
      • 2 baby globe artichokes, cooked

    13. Once the lamb is ready, remove from the water bath and vac pac bag and dry off any excess moisture with kitchen paper. Seal in a hot pan with a small dash of rapeseed oil until golden brown on all sides, remove and place on a board ready to carve.

    14. To serve, slice each rump into 2 pieces and serve onto plates on top of the cauliflower couscous.

    15. To each plate, add a dollop of the purée, caramelised cauliflower florets, chocolate jelly cubes and some sorrel. Drizzle with the jus and serve immediately.

      • 100ml of lamb jus
      • 1 handful of sorrel

      Sake-Marinated Lamb Rump, Aubergine and Miso Purée and Crispy Noodles

      Adding the Japanese flavours of sake and miso to this simple lamb recipe completely transforms the dish into something special. Victoria used the dry Gekkeikan Gensen Sozai Junmai Sake to marinate the lamb and serves with some crispy sesame soba noodles.

      Prep Time

          •    Prep and cook time: 40 minutes, plus 24 hours marinating time
          •    Yield: Serves 2



          •    3 tbsps of tamari
          •    3 garlic cloves, crushed
          •    1 lamb rump, fat scored
          •    2 spring onions, chopped
          •    1 red chilli, deseeded and chopped
          •    1 piece of fresh ginger, peeled and finely sliced
          •    200ml of sake, I used Gekkeikan Gensen Sozai Junmai

      Aubergine and miso puree:

          •    1 aubergine
          •    1 tbsp of red miso
          •    1 tbsp of caster sugar
          •    2 tbsps of tamari

      Crispy sesame soba noodles:

          •    1 tbsp of sunflower oil
          •    2 tbsps of sesame seeds
          •    1 tbsp of toasted sesame oil
          •    200g of soba noodles, skinny soba somen

      To serve:

          •    seaweed, aonori powdered
          •    1 spring onion, finely sliced


      1. Put the lamb into a large sandwich bag and add all the marinade ingredients. Seal the bag and squidge everything together, so the lamb is fully and evenly coated. Pop the bag in the fridge and leave to marinate overnight or for up to 24 hours.

      2. To make the aubergine and miso purée, press a barbecue skewer through an aubergine and place it directly over a gas hob ring. Turn the aubergine every now and then until the skin has charred and blackened all over. Scoop out the flesh and discard the burnt skin.

      3. Combine the miso, sugar and tamari in a small saucepan over a gentle heat and whisk until the miso and sugar have dissolved. Remove from the heat and add the aubergine pulp. Use a stick blender to blitz the mixture into a smooth purée. Set aside to reheat just before serving.

      4. Preheat the oven to the hottest setting.

      5. Brush off most of the excess marinade and place the lamb on a baking tray, fat side up. Roast for 5 minutes, before turning the heat down to 200˚C/gas mark 6 and roast for a further 10–15 minutes, depending on how pink you like your meat. Leave the lamb to rest tented with foil.

      6. To make the noodles, simply boil them in salted water according to the packet’s instructions, drain and toss in the oil and sesame seeds. Decant the oiled noodles into a hot wok or frying pan over a medium to high heat and use a fork or chopsticks to turn the noodles over until evenly browned and crispy.

      7. To plate up, slice the lamb and place it on a smear of aubergine and miso purée and scatter over some finely sliced spring onions. Serve alongside the crispy sesame soba noodles and dust over the seaweed powder.

      1. Start the dish by soaking the sweetbreads in lightly salted water for 1-2 hours - this will help to remove any bitterness and impurities. When finished, rinse thoroughly and soak in clean, cold water for 10-15 minutes. Pat dry and refrigerate until ready to cook.

      2. To prepare the Jerusalem artichoke purée, place the Jerusalem artichokes and lemon juice in a pan of cold water. Bring to the boil, cook until very tender and drain.

      Lamb Rump with Burrata and Marinated Romano Peppers

      This easy lamb rump recipe is fantastically quick to cook and has plenty of Mediterranean flavour, making it ideal for al fresco summer suppers. The simple pan-roasted lamb comes into its own when served alongside vibrant, roasted red peppers in a fragrant marinade and a mound creamy burrata.

      Prep Time

          •    Prep time: 15 minutes
          •    Cook time: 30 minutes, plus 45 minutes marinating
          •    Yield: Serves 4


          •    4 lamb rumps, each weighing approx. 130g

      Marinated Romano Peppers:

          •    25g of fresh thyme
          •    25ml of sherry vinegar
          •    500g of romano pepper
          •    25ml of balsamic vinegar
          •    150ml of extra virgin olive oil
      25g of fresh rosemary, whole sprigs
          •    50g of garlic cloves, whole cloves lightly crushed in the skins

      To serve:

          •    240g of burrata, (4 balls approx. 60g each)
      1 bunch of Greek basil, leaves shredded
          •    extra virgin olive oil


      1. Preheat a grill or barbecue to a high heat and grill the Romano peppers, turning regularly, until the skins are blistered and blackened all over.
      2. Alternatively, this can be done in batches by holding the peppers with tongs over an open gas flame. Transfer the hot peppers to a large bowl and add the other marinade ingredients. Cover the bowl with cling film and leave to marinate for 45 minutes.
      3. After this time, remove the peppers from the marinade. Peel off the blackened skins and tear the peppers into large strips, discarding any seeds. Strain the marinade through a sieve and discard the garlic and herbs. Dress the pepper strips in the strained marinade liquid and set aside until required.
      4. When ready to cook the lamb, preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4. Place the rumps fat-side down in a cold, ovenproof frying pan and place over a medium heat. Allow the fat to gently render down until golden – this should take about 8 minutes.
