Aaron was first asked to prepare lambs’ kidneys served on toast with a madeira mustard sauce, for the skills test.
Then it was onto the second test, where Aaron served his own dishes. Towards the end, he started to race, but managed to complete the task!
He made a Chettinad-spiced lamb loin with aubergine puree, cumin and coriander-spiced aubergine, roasted baby aubergines, crispy lamb sweetbreads and chard, served with a Madeira sauce.
For dessert, Aaron served a set buttermilk with fennel crumble, cherries and fresh almonds.
