Charred wedge of hispi cabbage, coated in butter and roast in the oven served with a truffle infused dressing and grated aged cheddar.
Preheat the oven to 200c. Remove the outer layer of leaves, wash and dry the cabbage. Cut each cabbage into 4 lengthwise. Heat the oil in a large frying or grill pan. Place the cabbage in, cut side down and cook over a high heat for 1 minute. Add the butter to the pan and continue to cook until the cabbage is golden brown before turning onto the second cut side and cooking until golden brown. Flip the cabbage onto the curved edge, baste with the butter and place into the oven for 10 minutes.
Place the egg yolk, flour, mustard powder and sugar into a large bowl. Whisk well then pour in the double cream whisking all the time. Place over a pan of boiling water (bain marie) and cook for approximately 10 minutes, whisking regularly until thickened. Remove from the heat and whisk in the vinegar and truffle oil. Season to taste.
Remove the cabbage from the oven, dress with the salad cream and plate. Grate the cheddar over liberally and serve.
