2. Preparation of the ANZCO Foods short ribs

Sear the ribs in a very hot pan to colour. Remove ribs and place in a roasting tin. Using the same pan, add roughly chopped vegetables to colour. Reglaze vegetables with red wine and place in the roasting tin with the ribs. Top with thyme, cover the ribs and vegetables with beef stock and then cover with foil. Bake for two hours at 175°C. Remove and serve.

3. Potato Puree

To prepare the potato puree, dice the potato and cook until tender. Strain and pass-through a sieve into a bowl.
Mix in bacon fat and cream then season with salt and pepper to taste.

4. Asparagus

Trim the ends then cut into the desired length. Blanch asparagus in salted boiling water for two minutes.
Remove and strain then toss in lemon oil.

5. Salsa Verde

Blitz all ingredients together in a blender until smooth. Season to taste.

6. Kawakawa Berry Jam

Sauté finely diced onion in oil until tender. Add tomato paste and cook out for two minutes. Add diced tomatoes and berries and bring to a boil, stirring consistently. Once boiled, reduce heat to a simmer.
Add vinegar, sugar, and salt and reduce by 1/3. Remove from heat and cool. Once cooled, blitz until smooth and pass through a sieve and serve.
