Method

This black pudding recipe from Paul Heathcote is a modern take on a traditional Lancashire dish. Black Pudding is wrapped in a cheesy potato mix to make delicious hash browns. These are offset perfectly with the sweetness of caramelised conference pears.
Step 1
Leave the potatoes in their skins and cook in boiling water for 10 minutes so that they are still firm. Drain and peel. Grate the potatoes into a bowl and mix with half the herbs.
4 Maris Piper potatoes
1 tsp chives
1 tsp parsley
Step 2
Add a pinch of sea salt to the egg white, beat with a whisk and mix with the grated potato and herb mixture, season with sea salt and pepper.
1 egg white
1 pinch of sea salt
Step 3
Pat out a quarter of the mix in a circle (larger than the slice of black pudding). Place black pudding and 25g of cheese in the middle, fold over the potatoes and pat into a circle. Repeat 4 times. Deep fry at 160C degrees until golden brown.

Step 4
Scoop the Conference pear into balls. Put one dessertspoon of vegetable oil into a hot frying pan with one teaspoon of sieved icing sugar. When the sugar turns golden brown, add the Conference pear balls and toss quickly.
