How to make it

This goat’s cheese with charred tenderstem broccoli, quince terrine and hazelnuts was produced by chef Paul Foster on Great British Chefs.  It’s a very delicately presented dish, we’ve just added more to to the plate make it a heartier main course…

  • 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
  • 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.
  • 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
