Kent sausage and spinach ravioli with garlic and tomato sauce

Entry Number 85

2017 finalist

William Stansfield from Platts Heath Primary School

I wanted to try making pasta as I hadn't done that before, also I thought sausage and spinach would taste nice together.

- Make a volcano out of the flour on the table top. Put 2 eggs and a table spoon of olive oil in the middle. Work the mixture together into and dough and then knead it until if becomes smooth and silky. Wrap in cling-film and put in the fridge for 30 mins.
- Fry the onions and sausage meat in a frying pan until onions soft and meat browned. Add 2 cloves of garlic (chopped).
- Steam the spinach and when wilted, cool and squeeze out excess water.
- Mix the sausage mixture with the spinach - add one egg and the parmesan.
- Use a pasta machine to roll out ravioli sheets - we used setting 4 for the right thickness, although 5 would have been OK too.
- Use a pastry cutter to cut out 2 ravioli circles, paint egg wash around the edges of each, put a teaspoon of the sausage and spinach filling in the middle and seal the two circles together.
- Heat some oil in a small pan. Add 2 cloves garlic (crushed) and fry for 1 minute. Add the tin of tomatoes and when warmed through, add in the cream and the chopped basil.
- Place the ravioli in a pan of salted boiling water for 7 minutes.
- Serve the ravioli with the sauce over the top and a sprig of basil.

Millie Pikem from Goodwin Academy

i wanted to make my own pastry so i found a recipe and decided to try and do it

The filling
Heat the oven to 400 degrees F. Beat the egg and water in a small bowl with a fork or whisk, set aside.

Lightly flour your work surface. Unfold the pastry sheet then lightly dust top with flour. Use a rolling pin to roll lightly so that the creases are flattened out (you don’t want to make the square much bigger).

Brush square of pastry with egg wash. Evenly spread with the 1/2 cup of garlic and herb cheese then evenly scatter the diced peppers, Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese and parsley (or basil).

Starting at the side closest to you, roll pastry up like a jelly roll. Cut into 20 1/2-inch slices. (A serrated bread knife works well for this). Place slices onto baking sheet. Then, lightly brush tops with egg wash.

Bake 14 to 18 minutes or until light golden brown. Serve warm or at room temperature.

The pastry
Sift the flour and salt into a large bowl. Roughly break the butter in small chunks, add them to the bowl and rub them in loosely. You need to see bits of butter.
Make a well in the bowl and pour in about two-thirds of the cold water, mixing until you have a firm rough dough adding extra water if needed. Cover with cling film and leave to rest for 20 mins in the fridge.
Turn out onto a lightly floured board, knead gently and form into a smooth rectangle. Roll the dough in one direction only, until 3 times the width, about 20 x 50cm. Keep edges straight and even. Don’t overwork the butter streaks; you should have a marbled effect.
Fold the top third down to the centre, then the bottom third up and over that. Give the dough a quarter turn (to the left or right) and roll out again to three times the length. Fold as before, cover with cling film and chill for at least 20 mins before rolling to use.
the filling
1 large egg
1 tablespoon water
1/2 cup roasted red peppers, chopped
1/2 cup garlic and herb spreadable Cheese, such as Boursin cheese
1 ounce Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, coarsely grated (about 1/4 cup)
2 tablespoons chopped parsley or basil
the pastry
250g strong plain flour
1 tsp fine sea salt
250g butter
at room temperature, but not soft
about 150ml cold water

morgan Kinch from Herne Bay High

i absolutely adore spicy foods. My family and I are adventurous with our taste buds and do not enjoy bland foods. We love eating meals from other cultures such as Japan,Greece, France and India. I like spicy foods. This dish represents a Mexican meal as it has lots of herbs and endless spices. It was fun to make and took a lot of practising at home. When it is my birthday I do not like having classic meals,I treat myself and have an indian curry, or a Chinese, or a spicy Mexican meal.

Heat the oil in a large saucepan. add the onions, peppers, celery and garlic, stir over medium heat until soft. Then add the chorizo and bacon, stir for a few minutes over a medium heat. add the spices, red wine vinegar, stock cube with 150 ml of water, tomatoe puree and parsley and leave to simmer for 10 minutes.Then add the tinned tomatoes and the tinned beans, stir and leave to simmer for a further 10 minutes on a medium heat. Add the baby plum tomatoes.
While the casserole is simmering, prepare the garlic bread.
Slice a small French stick diagonally, mix the butter, parsley and garlic together until you have a thick paste. Spread the butter evenly on each side of the bread. Then put in the oven on a tray at 180c for 10-15 minutes until golden brown. Serve the casserole in a bowl, decorate the top with a sprig of parsley and place the garlic bread on a side plate.

I absolutely love spices so I decided to mix things up with this recipe of pasta and meatballs. I decided to create my own recipe and add spices so the person who eats my meal is going to leave with a mouthful of endless spices on the end of their tastebuds and will want to try It again. I asure you!! This recipe includes homegrown chillies. By being homegrown they have had no bad chemicals sprayed on them. My meatballs have lots of herbs and spices and my garlic bread is always home made and the parsley is also home grown.

Mix the meatball ingrediants with your hands ( make sure you wash your hands before you start to get rid of germs, and after to get rid of meat blood and chilli sauce). With your hands make 24 even sized meat balls. put into a pan wth olive oil over a medium heat and turn them over until they are browned.
Filll a saucepan half way with water and bring to the boil,then add the pasta , put on a medum heat and leave until the pasta is soft.

Add 350ml of water and bring to a simmer.Add the cooked meatballs to the spicy tomatoe sauce.Add baby plum tomatoes and spinach and cook for a further 2 minutes.
Pre heat the oven to 180c for the garlic bread. Prepare the garlic bread by slicing the French stick diagonally then mixing the butter, crushed garlic and chopped parsley until you get a paste. Evenly spread the paste on each side of the bread, put in the oven for 10-15 minutes until golden brown.
Drain the pasta and place on a small side dish, place the meatballs next to the pasta and carefully pour the sauce ontop of the meatballs. add cheese for decoration then serve garlic bread next to the pasta on another side plate.

Duck with Port and Blackberry Sauce

Entry Number 67

2017 finalist

Patrick Baron from St John's Catholic Comprehensive School

Duck is a meat that can be sourced locally in Kent and it goes really well with fruit, green beans can also be sourced locally.
I have found memories of picking blackberries and can be found locally. Along with Apples which are very native to Kent.

Wash, peel and dice the potatoes.
Prepare the duck breasts by trimming any fat and place them on kitchen paper to dry.
When the potatoes have been part boiled, drain them and add a splash of oil, season and place on a baking tray and put into the oven to bake.
Meanwhile get a frying pan onto the heat and leave it so it gets hot. Place the duck skin side down.
Cook the duck so that the fat in the skin starts to melt and the skin becomes crispy.
Cook for 2 mins on the other side and place onto a baking sheet into the oven with the potatoes.
Swill the pan with the port and turn up the heat to reduce the liquid.
Add the chicken stock and reduce by half.
Add the blackberries and crush them down into the sauce.
Put a splash of oil in a frying pan and heat. Add the green beans and the flaked almonds, season and cook.
Strain the sauce and replace it into a clean pan and reduce the liquid until it becomes thick.
On a warm plate put the potatoes and the beans.
Slice the duck breast and pour over the sauce.
1 large potato
olive oil
seasoning
1 duck breast
50ml Port
50g blackberries
Thyme
50ml Chicken stock
1 spoon cranberry sauce
portion of green beans
a few flaked almonds

Deconsructed Apple Crumble Tart with Toffee sauce

Entry Number 67

2017 finalist

Patrick Baron from St John's Catholic Comprehensive School

Blackberries grow in our garden and the apples are from Kent

Slice the apples into nice pieces. not to thin as they will be to mushy when heated in the hot butter.
In a saucepan heat the butter and add the apples.
Add the brown sugar and spices.
Cook until just soft, by this time the butter and sugar would have melted enough to make a sauce.
Use 2 oven proof serving dishes and put the apple and sauce into them.
Allow to cool.
Cut two circles out of the pastry big enough to form a lid and lace over the apples.
Press the pastry down to avoid any air or juices to run out as this will make the pasty soggy.
Bake in an oven on 200 for about 20 minuets.
Next make the crumble by rubbing in the butter to the flour and stir in the sugar and oats.
Spread the mixture onto a baking tray and bake until golden and crisp for 10 minuets.
In a saucepan heat the butter brown sugar and cream allow it to boil then take it off the heat and stir.
Pour into a serving jug.
Scatter the crumble crumbs on a plate and take the tarts out of the oven
Turn the tarts out to reveal a golden sweet soaked tart.
