With Au Fare.

Au Fare’s Head Chef shares with us one of their very pop­u­lar dishes


100g fresh fet­tuc­cini I 1 lob­ster (around 500g) I 1 bou­quet garni (mixed herbs) I 10cl cook­ing cream I A hand­ful of pars­ley I Spring onion.


Boil the fet­tuc­cini in some salted wa­ter with a dash of olive oil and when ‘al dente’, drain, and set aside. Put wa­ter to boil in a pot and add the bou­quet garni, spring onion, salt and pep­per. When the wa­ter is boiling, throw in the lob­ster and boil for ten min­utes. Let the lob­ster cool slightly and re­move the shell, re­serv­ing the lob­ster meat on a plate. Put the shell and head of the lob­ster back in with the stock and boil for another 10min on high heat to make the ‘bisque sauce’. Strain the sauce and add 1 tea­spoon of tomato paste. Cut the lob­ster tail into medal­lion pieces, and gen­tly fry in some olive oil. Add the bisque sauce into the pan and cook for a fur­ther two min­utes at high heat. Add the cooked fet­tuc­cini, cream, pars­ley and spring onion and cook for a cou­ple of min­utes, while stir­ring and mix­ing all the in­gre­di­ents through.

To serve

Twirling with a fork, make a spi­ral with the fet­tuc­cini and set on a plate. Add the lob­ster medal­lions and bisque sauce on top.

Bon ap­pétit!
