    4 pork chops thick, on the bone1 bunch spring onions quickly blanched in boiling salted water200g morel mushrooms 3 shallots - finely diced 1 chargrill pan (optional)

    For the pea and asparagus risotto1 tbsp olive oil1 onion, finely chopped250g risotto rice bottle white wine290ml chicken stock (or 2 stock cubes and pint boiling water)1 bunch asparagus, chopped150g fresh peas (shelled weight)50g mascarpone 50g freshly grated Parmesan

    l Heat the olive oil in a saucepan, add the onion and cook until softened.l Stir in the rice and continue stirring for two mins while the rice becomes slightly opaque.l Pour in the wine and chicken stock.l Cook, stirring often, for about 12-15 mins.

    l Cover the asparagus and peas with boiling water and rapidly boil for about three mins. Drain.l Stir the vegetables and the mascarpone & Parmesan into the rice and leave to one side. l Liberally season your pork chops on both sides with salt and pepper, and place them into a hot pan with a little olive oil. Cook the pork fairly slowly but with enough heat to brown them on all sides. l Place in a warm place to rest whilst you cook the mushrooms and onions. l Sweat the shallot in olive oil and a knob of unsalted butter. Add the mushrooms and cook gently for 3-4 mins.

    l Take the spring onions and coat lightly with olive oil and salt and pepper and place onto the hot chargrill until they start to blister and colour nicely. This will give them a wonderful flavour.l To compose your dish give the risotto a final good stir ( it should now be wonderfully creamy) and place in the middle of your serving plate. Place the pork chop onto the risotto and spoon some of the cooking juices over the top, sprinkle with the cooked mushroom and drape the charred onions over the top. For a final delicious flourish, sprinkle with a few wild garlic flowers.

    For the salad12 spears aspargus100g broadbeans, shelled100g fresh peas, shelled150g samphire16 broccoli florets16 rocket leaves1 small stale ciabatta30ml extra virgin oil

    For the broccoli puree75g broccoli stem50g unsalted butter20g bonito flakes100ml vegetable stock

    l Finely dice the shallot and heat a tablespoon of the butter in a pan. Add the shallots to the pan and gently sweat. l Add the shrimps and butter and season with the mace, cayenne, lemon juice and salt. Leave on the side of the stove.l Rinse the samphire under running water and then cook in boiling water with no salt. Once they are soft to the bite, they are cooked. Remove the samphire from the boiling water and plunge into iced water. The process of cooking the vegetables in boiling water is blanching and stopping the cooking in iced water is refreshing. l Salt the boiled water and blanch and refresh the remaining vegetables. Remove the vegetables from the water as soon as they are cold. l Slice the ciabatta as thinly as possible, lay on

    a lined baking tray and sprinkle with a little oil. Cover the bread with a sheet of parchment paper and another baking tray. Bake at 180C for 6-9min, until golden brown. l For the puree, cut the broccoli stems into thin slices, cover with vegetable stock and bring to the boil. Continue to cook until the liquid has evaporated, add the Bonito flakes just before removing from the heat. l Liquidise the broccoli with butter until a smooth puree is formed. Season and leave to cool. l Cut the asparagus stem into three even pieces. l Place all the vegetables in a bowl, drizzle with the remaining olive oil and season. Divide them evenly on four plates and dress with brown shrimps. l Garnish with the rocket leaves, broccoli puree, crisp ciabatta and serve.
