Method

Sousing liquid

Put all ingredients into a heavy based pan and place on heat until all sugar has dissolved. Take off heat and place in the fridge to cool.

Spiced jelly

Place all ingredients in a heavy based pan and bring up to 83 degrees Celsius. Stir continuously for 4 minutes, strain through a fine sieve and put in the fridge to set.

Shallot puree

Place heavy based pan on the heat until nice and hot, add a little veg oil then add the shallots and garlic sweat them off allowing them to brown slightly to give them a lovely roasted flavour. Deglaze your pan with wine and allow all the excess liquid to evaporate. Then add stock and cream and allow to reduce by at least half so it is quite a thick consistency. While it is still hot put it in a blender till silky smooth. Add your small knob of cold butter and blitz. This will give it richness and shine, season and pass through a fine sieve to be sure to get rid of any lumps.

Salad

Souse the fennel for approx 7 minutes, then drain off extra liquid, add a nice mix of all the other ingredients and gently toss.
