Welsh hill farm lamb and freshly landed monkfish were on the menu when celebrity chef Matt Tebbutt joined Kate Humble for an ESSE cookery demonstration at Humble by Nature, Kate’s working farm.
The Saturday Kitchen presenter wowed guests with a mouth-watering menu – all cooked on ESSE’s 990 EL electric range cooker. Matt showcased the 990’s all-round versatility and outstanding roasting and griddling ability by preparing two very different dishes.
The lamb dish demonstrated the 990 EL’s ability to sear a lamb neck fillet with a deliciously crisp, caramelised finish while Matt’s seared monkfish recipe made perfect use of the cast iron hotplates’ ability to ‘steam and sizzle’ simultaneously.
After a warm welcome from Kate, during a packed programme, guests also enjoyed wood-fired cookery demonstrations by ESSE’s own demo chef Dan Blewitt on the new Bakeheart cook stove and a foraging session.
Guests made autumnal gin, infusing local Wye Valley Gin with hedgerow berries or a wild hedgerow flavoured vinegar, before sitting down to a delicious lunch of lamb from the farm, halloumi and delicious seasonal sides in the Pig and Apple café.
ESSE hosts regular cookery demonstrations featuring some of the UK’s leading chefs.
