A classic British dish of liver and kidneys cooked in a rich, spiced sauce.


For the salad

Preparation method

  1. For the chicken livers, heat a sauté pan or a large frying pan until medium hot. Add the butter, shallot and garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes until just softened.

  2. Turn the heat up to high and add the chicken livers and kidneys. Fry for 2-3 minutes until browned and nearly cooked through.

  3. Add the mushrooms and cook for another minute.

  4. Add the beef stock and cook until reduced by half. Add the cream, mustard and Worcestershire sauce and cook until just thickened.

  5. Season, to taste, with salt and freshly ground black pepper and cook for a further two minutes

  6. For the salad, toss together the Little Gem, cucumber and rocket in a bowl.

  7. Place the remaining ingredients with a tablespoon of water into a small bowl and whisk together until emulsified. Pour over the salad and toss to coat.

  8. To serve, place the toast on serving plates, top with the devilled livers and kidneys and garnish with flat leaf parsley. Serve the salad alongside.
