Lancaster House Serve up 3-Course Apple Day Menu

Lancaster House Head Chef, Damien, has been cooking up a storm (or perhaps we should say ‘an orchard’) for Apple Day. He’s come up with a 3-course menu featuring Pink Lady and Cox apples. Generous to a fault, Damian shares the recipe for the salad starter with us.

Pink Lady  & Bury Black Pudding Salad



  • 2 handfuls  Lollo Rosso lettuce
  • 2 Maris Piper potatoes, peeled, sliced, quartered and parboiled in salted boiling water (approx. 10 mins)
  • 1 Bury Black Pudding, rolled into 8 balls
  • 1 Pink Lady apple, peeled, cored and quartered
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp soft butter
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 100g tender stem brocolli
  • 50g watercress
  • 10 g horseradish sauce
  • 100g creme fraiche
  • 4 walnuts, halved


For the dressing…

Mix the watercress, horseradish sauce and creme fraiche in a bowl and refrigerate.

Salad …
  1. In a frying pan, add brown sugar and butter and heat gently until golden. Add the apple quarters – you may need to add a little water to ensure the sugar does not over caramelise and burn. Cook the apples until soft and golden, approx. 5 mins.
  2. In a separate frying pan, saute the potatoes in hot olive oil until crisp and golden on the outside.
  3. Cook the black pudding under the grill, turning occasionally until cooked, approx. 5 mins.
  4. Blanche the broccoli for 1 min in boiling salted water.
  5. Toast the walnut halves under the grill for 1 min.
To assemble…

Spoon the dressing into the centre of each plate. Place the sliced black pudding onto the dressing and top each one with 2 saute potato quarters and two apple quarters. Top with the broccoli and sprinkle with the walnuts.
