roasted guinea fowl with white onion and toasted bread sauce, braised baby turnips and earl grey soaked apricots
by sam ashton-booth
Here Sam showcases roasted guinea fowl breasts from Anjou, France, which are reared by farmers to the highest welfare standards, achieving the perfect texture and flavour. Known for his experimental combinations, Sam pairs this crispy-skinned pan-fried guinea fowl with dried apricots, rehydrated in earl grey tea, with the addition of maple syrup. We braise baby turnips in umami chicken stock with a selection of classic aromatics. The final flurry of dynamic flavour in this dish is in the form of onion and toasted bread sauce, which brings out all the sweetness of the onions when they are sweated slowly in butter before being pureed with toasted bread into a creamy and delicious dressing.
Award-winning wine expert Matthew Jukes has paired this with a 2020 Shiraz from Victoria, Australia. This wine is made to work in tandem with great cooking rather than swamp it, and so it is an amazingly collegiate red that will support the lusty guinea fowl in its quest to enlighten your senses.
To complete your Wild Radish experience and bring the Chef's Table to you, we include audio tasting notes for the paired wine and a clip from the chef with their inspiration behind the dish and what makes it so special at this time of year. You'll also have our keepsake recipe card so you can recreate the dish to make memories another night.
