Ingredients:

(Serves 2)

Rack of lamb, french trimmed

1 medium sized potato

1 handful of peas

1 bunch of asparagus

Butter

Sage

1 slice of bread

White wine vinegar

Mustard

Lamb stock if making the sauce (lamb bones, sage, madiera)


Method:

1. Season the lamb well and get into a sous vide bag with some sage and oil. Cook for at least 1.5hours at 65c/149f.

2. Peel the potato and cut into little rounds with a pairing knife, now simmer in an emulsion of butter and water until the water boils off. This should leave a delicately cooked potato inside which is then browned by the butter at the end after the water dissipates. Season.

3. Keep a few asparagus tops and shave some of the stalks. Blanch.

4. Boil the peas briefly and then blitz with the offcuts from the asparagus. Season and add a touch of white whine vinegar to freshen up.

5.Place a slice of white bread in the oven to dry out for about 10 mins, then blitz with a bunch of sage leaves to a fine powder. This will cover the lamb later.

6. When the lamb is finished in the sous vide, take out, pat dry and cook in butter on a high heat until brown. Then paint one side with mustard and sprinkle the sage powder all over.
