  • Pour over half the water and bring to a simmer. Season with salt and pepper. Lower the heat and cook slowly for 14 minutes, adding the water gradually and seasoning as required
  • salt
  • Remove from the heat, add the parmesan cheese and truffle oil. Stir gently with a plastic spatula. Pour onto a tray and cover until required
  • Heat the oven to 180˚C/gas mark 4. Coat the shallots in a little olive oil and salt and roast in the oven for 45 minutes until tender. Remove from the oven and leave to cool before slicing in half length ways
  • Heat the oven to 180°C/Gas mark 4 so that it is ready for the lamb. In an ovenproof frying pan, cook the lamb loins on a high heat in 1 tablespoon of oil, colouring them evenly all over
  • Add a knob of butter and continue to cook until nicely caramelised, which should take approximately 3-4 minutes
