Episode 12: Prep Now, Eat Later

Summary

The chef demonstrates recipes that can be prepared in advance, including slow-cooked chicken chasseur and pork loin stuffed with chestnuts and sage. He also visits Thomas Maieli, who gave up his career cooking for the rich and famous in Los Angeles to concentrate on his passion of creating home-made duck confit

Review

The meat of James Martin’s home cooking series has been the kind of faff-free food that’s designed to satisfy the household rather than impress the neighbours. But he acknowledges that when sociability strikes, it’s useful to have a few smarter options up your sleeve, and to finish the series he offers ideas that wouldn’t look out of place at a restaurant, let alone a dinner party.

Beef wellington, custard soufflé and passion fruit delice all score highly on the “oooh” scale. His guests are the endlessly fascinating and knowledgeable food historian Ivan Day, who makes delicate macedoine jelly, and fourth generation artisan salmon smoker Ole Hansen.
