For the Potato and Spinach Tortilla
- 2 Desirée potatoes, unpeeled
- black pepper
- 150 g spinach, rinsed
- 1 shallot, finely chopped
- 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
- 1/2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 egg
- 3 tbsp double cream
- pinch of nutmeg
- 25 g butter
For the Artichoke and Truffle Purée:
- 4 jerusalem artichokes, thickly sliced
- 3 tbsp single cream
- truffle oil
- pinch of nutmeg
- pinch of finely chopped parsley
For the Marsala Jus:
- 2 tbsp marsala
- 1 shallot, chopped
- 300 ml veal stock
1. Preheat the oven to 180C/gas 4.
2. To make the tortilla, place the potatoes in a saucepan of lightly salted boiling water and cook for 15 minutes.
3. Meanwhile, place the spinach in a separate saucepan with just the water clinging to its leaves. Cook over a low heat for 2-3 minutes, or until wilted. Set aside to cool, then squeeze out any excess moisture and place in a mixing bowl.
4. Place the shallot and garlic in a small frying pan with the olive oil and cook over a medium heat for 2-3 minutes, until softened. Add to the mixing bowl.
5. Allow the cooked potatoes to cool, then grate into the mixing bowl. Add the egg, cream, nutmeg, and a pinch each of salt and pepper. Mix well.
6. Place the butter in a very small, ovenproof frying pan and melt gently over a low heat. Add the tortilla mixture to the pan, level the top, then transfer to the preheated oven and bake for 10-15 minutes, until lightly golden.
7. Meanwhile, brush the veal with the melted butter, season lightly with salt and place in a griddle pan. Set over a medium-low heat for 6-8 minutes, turning the veal once, until lightly cooked. Transfer to a serving plate and keep warm.
8. To make the purée, cook the Jerusalem artichokes in a large, heavy-based frying pan over a medium-low heat until dry, then mash with a fork. Add the cream, bring to the boil and cook over a high heat until the liquid has reduced by half. Add a little truffle oil, to taste, then stir in the nutmeg and parsley. Spoon the purée over the veal and keep warm.
9. Place the sage leaves in a small dry frying pan and cook over a medium-low heat for 1 minute. Use the sage leaves to garnish the purée.
10. To make the Marsala jus, place the Marsala and shallot in a small saucepan, bring to the boil and cook over a high heat until reduced. Add the veal stock and continue boiling until reduced by three quarters. Transfer the liquid into a sauce boat, then pour around the edge of the serving plate.
11. Spoon the olives around the edges of the serving plate with the sun-dried and cherry tomatoes and serve.
