Seared Lamb


1 loin lamb, trimmed

1 teaspoon olive oil

Salt to season


Rub the oil on the lamb and place on a hot grill pan. Cook for about 3 minutes each side and rest.


Torched Corleggy


200g Corleggy goat cheese, rind removed and sliced

1 teaspoon soft butter


Place cheese on a metal tray and rub with the butter. Gratinate with a blow torch until golden. Cut into dice


Grilled Leeks


2 leeks

Salt/ vegetable stock

Few sprigs thyme and bay leaf

Oil for brushing


Cut the leeks in half ( use the green for something else)

Split the leeks through the root and wash well. Bring a pan of vegetable stock or well seasoning water to a simmer and add the thyme and bay. Gently poach the leeks until just cooked and dry on kitchen paper. Brush with oil and then place on a hot grill pan to mark.


Wild garlic dressing


6 wild garlic leaves, stalk removed

½ teaspoon Dijon mustard

2 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar

50ml olive oil

Salt and pepper to taste


Finely shred the wild garlic and mix with the other ingredients.


6 radicchio leaves


Arrange on a platter. Slice the rest lamb and place on to the leaves. Add the leeks and goat cheese. Spoon over the dressing.
