  • 500ml chicken stock
  • 200ml double cream
  • 20 wild garlic leaves
  • Salt and sugar to taste

For the scotch eggs

  • 4 quail eggs
  • 200g sausage meat
  • ½ hand Chopped coriander
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 50g flour
  • 50g panko breadcrumbs


To make the soup

  • Add the cream and wild garlic, then blend to a smooth purée.
  • Pass through a fine sieve.
  • Adjust the seasoning with salt and sugar.
  • Keep hot.

To make the scotch eggs

  • Bring a pan of water to the boil and drop in the quail eggs, simmer them for exactly 2 ½ minutes then put them straight into chilled water and refresh them for 5 minutes. Peel the eggs carefully once cold.
  • Mix the sausage meat and coriander then season with salt and pepper.
  • Roll the meat out in between 2 sheets of grease-proof paper, using non-stick grease spray on them first to ensure the meat does not stick.
  • Once the meat is about 2-3mm thick roll around the eggs to coat all the egg evenly.
  • Roll the scotch eggs first in the flour, then the beaten egg and finally the breadcrumb to coat them fully and evenly.
  • Deep fry when needed for about 1 ½ minutes at 190˚c or till golden and crisp.
  • Drain on kitchen towel and serve.
