6 ripe fresh black figs, quartered selection of endive, rocket and radicchio juice of 1 lemon sea salt and freshly ground black pepper 6 medium-sized fresh quails 65 ml (2’A fl oz) olive oil
This Crab Salad (left) is combined with home-made mayonnaise and served with little gem lettuces and toasted ciabatta bread. Sir Terence usually rounds off a meal with cheese (above), but loves certain fruity puddings, such as the luscious Panetone with Peaches and Mascarpone (top).
Pre-heat the oven to Gas Mark 4 (180°C, 350°F). Season the quails. Heat a little olive oil in a frying pan and fry the pork belly allowing the fat to melt. Remove the belly, then seal the quails in until light brown. Place them on a roasting tray with the belly. Sprinkle over some of the fat and roast for 6 minutes. Mix the mozzarella, figs and salad, and place on a platter. Arrange the quails on top. Drizzle with olive oil and lemon juice. Place the pork belly on top and serve hot or cold. Serves 6.
