A taste of Manchester | Food Blogging

*Warning this is photo heavy and will potentially make you hungry*

I have collaborated with  fabulous Copthorne Hotel, Manchester, on a great project with their chef, Simon Taylor, on a truly traditional recipe that can be found here!! On the millennium hotels website. The recipe includes locally sourced traditional black pudding (from Bury), some tasty chorizo and a free range egg. I excitedly agreed to take part in creating this recipe as I love cooking so much and would love to include more and share on my blog. I do need to improve my photography so sorry for the quality but hopefully you can get the gist. I love black pudding and chorizo so this combo sounded very yummy to me :) I really enjoyed having a go at creating this and reallllly enjoyed eating it ! Let me know if you decide to try making it too. 

For the recipe you will need:
2 slices of Bury Black pudding 
1 Free range egg
Egg wash
Bread crumbs
Vegetable oil for deep frying

The first step is to put the chorizo and black pudding in a food processor and blitz together

You then must add an egg and combine then place mixture in the fridge for around 20 minutes

The next step is to 'soft' boil the eggs this basically is to ensure the middle stays runny. The eggs must be chilled quickly so place them in a bowl of cold water.

You can then peel the shell from the egg (very carefully)

Next up you need to use the oil and fill up a pan and put this to 'boil'
I tested the oil was hot enough by putting a bread crumb in to see if it cooked.

You carefully mould the chorizo and black pudding mixture around the egg until it looks like a large ball. This is harder to achieve than it looks but just keep rollin and padding it (if that makes any sense at all)

Then lay out your bread crumbs and roll the ball in to the bread crumbs again just roll and press until the ball is totally covered

You then put it in to the oil and cook until brown (around 4 minutes)

Then there you have it your very own taste of manchester !

I hope you liked this different type of post ! Do let me know if you  would like to see more like this and if you attempt to make this yourself :D !!
