1
To make the ricotta, combine the milk and cream in a heavy bottomed saucepan and bring the mixture to 82℃. Add the buttermilk and salt and continue to heat until it reaches 95°C, maintaining this heat for as long as possible. Strain the mixture through a colander and hang in a muslin, leaving to strain overnight
  • 1l whole milk
  • 250g of double cream
  • 188g of buttermilk
  • 4g of Maldon salt

Meanwhile, prepare the dehydrated olives. Rinse the olives thoroughly and blanch in boiling water for 20 seconds. Remove from the pan and place in a colander to drain, patting dry if necessary
3
Place the olives in a dehydrator overnight at 63°C. Once dried, blitz in a food processor to a fine crumb and set aside at room temperature until required
4
For the nasturtium pesto combine all of the ingredients together in a blender and blitz for 3 minutes until incorporated and emulsified. Transfer to a suitable container and set aside until ready to serve
5
Blow torch the tomatoes until they begin to blister and refresh immediately in iced water. Once cool, gently remove the skins and slice the tomatoes into discs, wedges or dice depending on preference. Season well and set aside in a cool – but not cold – place until ready to serve
6
Wash the cucumbers and, leaving the skin on, slice both lengthways and across into large chunks. Dress with a little olive oil, lemon juice and salt to taste
7
For the vinaigrette, place all the ingredients in a bowl and whisk to incorporate. Arrange the tomatoes on a tray and pour over the vinaigrette to dress
  • 100g of olive oil, premium quality
  • 25g of tomato vinegar
  • 35g of ketchup, homemade is best
  • 3g of sugar
  • 2g of salt
8
To serve, divide the dressed tomatoes between serving plates and scatter over the cucumber pieces and generous dollops of ricotta. Drizzle the nasturtium pesto over the top and garnish with flowers and a dusting of the dehydrated black olive powder
