REAL CLASSIC
Meringue and ice cream
in perfect harmony

BAKED ALASKA
Serves 4
You will need
For the Baked Alaska...
* 1 panettone
* 4 scoops of vanilla ice cream
For the meringue...
* 70ml water
* 35g glucose
* 300g caster sugar
* 150g egg whites
1. Slice the panettone about
2cm thick and place in the
base of the copper pan or
ovenproof dish. Then add
around four scoops of vanilla
ice cream, covering the base
of the panettone.

2. To make the meringue,
put the water, glucose and
caster sugar in a thick-based
saucepan. Place over a
moderate heat and stir until
it boils. Skim the surface and
wash down the crystals with a
clean brush dipped in water.

3. Increase the heat so the
syrup cooks rapidly. When
the syrup temperature
reaches 110°C, beat the
whites until stiff. When it
reaches 115°C, slowly whisk
it into the whites in a thin
stream taking care not to
let it run onto the whisk.
Continue beating until
completely cold. This will
take approximately 15 mins.
2. Pipe the meringue on top
of the ice cream using a star
nozzle until the ice cream is
completely covered and the
meringue is piped up into a
dome shape.
3. Place in a 220°C oven
until the meringue is golden
in colour. You may need to
turn the meringue around
halfway through cooking to
get an even colouring.
4. Once baked, serve
immediately with a small shot
of Grand Marnier. B

CHEESE BAR

RUDIE'S

Soho

Camden

Dalston

Blacklock's great value menu
focuses on British chops all
cooked over English smoked
oak, which smells incredible.
Keep things easy for a crowd
and go 'all in'. You'll start with
a selection of pre-chop bites
before tackling the mountain
of skinny chops - beef rump,
lamb cutlet, pork loin and
more, all served on fluffy flat
bread to soak up all the
juices. Meanwhile on Sunday,
they take things up a notch
with their incredible all-in
Sunday Roast. You certainly
won't end up hungry.

Famed for its cheese-centric
menu, this intimate Camden
Market Stables restaurant
has launched fondue nights
every Thursday until the New
Year. One for real cheese
fanatics, there's a choice
of two fondue recipes,
both served with chunks of
baguette, pickled onions
and cornichons. Festive
accompaniments perfect for
dipping include truffled roast
potatoes, deep fried Brussels
sprouts and pigs in blankets.
Get a group together, order
the lot and get dipping. Oh,
and don't forget the wine!

Jamaican restaurant Rudie's
in Dalston is sure to warm up
the long winter nights. We're
big fans of their charcoal
grilled jerk sharing-style
menu all year round but this
Christmas there's a brilliantly
different special menu. Start
your meal with Appleton
Rum Pork Ribs followed by
the Festive Yeah Mon!
Platter which includes
stuffed jerk turkey, rolled
jerk pork belly and roast
yam. Finish with Rudie's Rum
Cake served with nutmeg
and rum Chantilly.
