Tenderstem broccoli

Quince terrine

  • 4 quinces
  • 100g of sugar
  • 50g of butter


To serve

Preheat the oven to 160°C/gas mark 3
For the quince terrine, add the sugar and butter to a pan and heat to a light caramel colour. Pour into a baking tray roughly 30cm long, 15cm wide and 2cm deep and allow to set. Peel and thinly slice the quince and build into layers on top of the caramel
  • 100g of sugar
  • 50g of butter
  • 4 quinces
Build the quince layers to just above the rim of the tray, cover with tin foil and bake for 45 minutes until soft in the centre. Remove from the oven, leave to cool slightly then place a tray on top. Press in the fridge for 6 hours
Grind the hazelnuts into a powder in a food processor and gently caramelise in a pan with the sugar. Pour onto a tray, allow to cool then chop to a crumb
Trim 2 large spears of broccoli per person and cut in half lengthways to expose a flat side. Reserve until needed. Finely chop the rest of the broccoli, cook in boiling water for 1 minute and refresh in ice water. Blitz in a blender until smooth and season to taste with salt
To finish the dish, cut the terrine and goat's cheese into small cubes and allow to come to room temperature
Char the flat side of the broccoli in a hot pan with a dash of sunflower oil to develop a dark colour, so it is cooked with a little bit of bite. Warm the purée, slice the pear thinly and season with salt, then arrange the rest of the ingredients on the plate
