Tristan Welch, head chef, Launceston Place
*Winter is time to get the thermos flask out. There's a casserole recipe that you can do with pretty much any meat, but it's perfect with venison. Marinade your meat in red wine for at least 12 hours, long enough to colour the meat. Remove the red wine and reduce it to a glaze. Dice the meat into 2cm cubes, roll it in flour and sauté it in a red-hot pan and remove. Add a selection of diced root vegetables to the pan - onions, carrots, celery, anything you want really. Add a dash of tomato puree, a sprig of thyme and put the meat back in with the veg. Finally, add your red wine reduction, cover with stock and simmer for two to three hours.

*Another real thermos flask treat is hot chocolate with chilli. Put some milk in a pan and add in a dried chilli, which gives you a mild warmth providing you take it out at the end. Heat gently to just under a simmer and break in the chocolate of your choice. Stir it while the chocolate melts and finish it with a little freshly grated nutmeg.


I haven't tried these, but thought they looked interesting way of keeping warm at a crag :)

Green Thai Curry Paste

from http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/database/greencurrypaste_67789.shtml

Ingredients
5 medium green chillies, stalks cut off (birdseye chilies work well)
1 small onion
5cm/2in piece of fresh ginger, peeled and grated
2 garlic cloves, crushed
small bunch of fresh coriander
2 lemongrass stalks, chopped
1 lime, grated zest and juice
1 lime, grated zest only
2.5cm/1in piece galangal, peeled and chopped (if available)
1 tbsp coriander seeds
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp black peppercorns
2 tsp Thai fish sauce
3 tbsp olive oil

Method
1. Place all of the ingredients in a food processor and blitz to a paste. Use straight away or store in a jar in the fridge for up to 3 weeks. This quantity is enough for a curry for 8 people.

I quadrupel this recipe and freeze it. With four times the ingredients they don't just whizz to the outside of the food processor and sit there. I lay a sheet of cling film over a baking tray, spread the paste over it and freeze it open. Once frozen it's easy to slice in to portions and re-wrap for when I need it.

I usually have some in my freezer if people want a block to try.

Thai Green Curry

Adapted from http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/database/thaigreencurry_67788.shtml
The bbc recipe above that I found is good, but doesn't go far enough with hungry climbers. Carrots and green beans are a good addition to bulk it out, and don't seem misplaced in this curry.

Ingredients
2 tbsp green curry paste (according to taste)
1 tbsp soft dark brown sugar
2-3 large carrots, cut into thin sticks
200g fine green beens, cut into ~4cm lengths
1-2 thick stalks lemongrass, fat ends bashed with a rolling pin (optional)
750g/1˝lb skinless, boneless chicken, cut into chunks (use breast and/or leg meat)
zest of one lime
400ml/14fl oz coconut milk (a can full)
good shake of Thai fish sauce or light soy sauce
handful of coriander, roughly chopped (the more the better though to be honest)


Method
1) Fry the above curry paste in a bit of olive oil. Add the chicken breasts, fry for a few minutes until they've all started to cook.
2) Add the carrots and beans and the soft brown sugar, stir in with the chiken and cook for  minutes so they absorp the flavour of the paste.
3) Add the lime zest, fish sauce and the can of coconut milk
4) Allow to simmer while the rice cooks. It's ready when the carrots and beans are. If the sauce is a bit thin when the rice is almost done, mix some cornflour into a paste with water then add to the pan to thicken the sauce.

moved from the first post to tidy it up, link added.


Cheese Scones

There's loads of recipes on the internet for these, they are all crap, none use enough butter or cheese.

225g self raising flour
pinch of salt
80g butter
75g cheese (stupidly mature is best)
~150ml milk

Rub the butter in to the flour and salt, add lots of cheese, then add the milk (bit by bit -if you add too much it will all go wrong), mixing it in with your hands until it forms a nice dough, that's not too hard or too soft; just a nice consistency.  Split in to about 4 pieces, roll these in to balls and then flatten on a greased baking tray, next brush the tops with the reamining milk, and add more cheese to the top.  Bake at 220 degrees C for 12-15mins (apparently, probably a bit longer), until the cheese is starting to brown.  Cool slightly and eat warm.

Had a few requests so:

Chocolate, fridge cake

Main bit
250g Chocolate pieces
2tbs Honey
4tbs Milk
1 egg (beaten)
125g Glace cherries (quartered)
400g Digestive biscuits (all smashed up)

Topping

175g Chocolate pieces
3tbs Single cream

Melt chocolate, honey and milk in a big pan, until melted. Add everything else. Put in a tray. Put in fridge for 4 hours.

Melt topping stuff in a pan. Pour on top. Fridge a bit more. Done!

(I found that the easiest way to get it out of the tray was to cut round the edge and then dip the trays in hot water for about 30 seconds. They just fell out.)
