We start today with the chocolate dessert - it's really simple to make, but it's all about the detail - which is where I come in, to show you how to make it perfect.
We elevate a silky smooth orange chocolate mousse to a fine dining masterpiece! As we put dessert in the fridge to set, the kitchen is usually taking delivery of a bounty of the freshest hand dived scallops.
I'll share my foolproof shucking technique and it's time for you to get stuck in to these beauties of the sea. The starter is a balance of textures and flavours, with crisp salty pancetta, silky butter sauce and sweet, seared scallops. You'll learn a lot here.
Next we'll take on my favourite sauté dish: tarragon chicken. You'll learn how to break down a chicken, about pan frying and caramelisation, deglazing, reduction of sauces and, of course, building flavour. It's a gutsy main course that I'll never tire of. Job done, sit back and enjoy with a glass of wine or two, good company and great food, cooked by you.
