Our recipe this week is perfect for this time of year when new potatoes and asparagus are just in season – Slow Cooked Pork Belly with Streaky Bacon and a Local Spring Vegetable Fricasse # Serves 4 Ingredients: 4 cloves garlic Bunch of thyme Half bottle red wine 4 pork bellies Salt and pepper 1 turnip 1 carrot 1/2 celeriac 1 fennel A tablespoon of vegetable oil, for frying 100 g streaky bacon 1 pint chicken stock 1/2 pint single cream Knob of butter 4 slices of black pudding (optional) New potatoes, halved and cooked A handful of broad beans 6 asparagus A handful of peas 20 g wild garlic The pork: 1. First, blitz two cloves of garlic (peeled), three quarters of the thyme and the red wine in a food processor. Place the pork belly, including the skin, in a deep oven tray and season. Then, pour over the wine mixture, ensuring half is covering the pork. 2. Cover the pan with kitchen foil and cook at 105°C / 220°F for 10 hours. The fricasse: 1. Chop all of the vegetables (excluding the broad beans, asparagus and peas) into cubes, roughly 1 cm square. Next, chop two cloves of garlic and the remainder of the thyme very fine.

Add the cream to taste. Finish the dish: 1. Remove the pork from the oven and heat the knob of butter in a frying pan. Place the pork bellies in the pan and crisp the outside until golden. Place back into the oven at 170°C / 340°F for about 10-15 minutes, adding the black pudding at the same time. 2. Heat through the fricasse and add the cooked new potatoes, broad beans, asparagus and peas for a few minutes, take off the heat and stir through the wild garlic.
