10 slices of French stick or ciabatta about 2cm thick
3tbsp olive oil
2 small leeks, washed and finely sliced
2 garlic cloves, 1 crushed 1 left whole
100ml white wine

½ tsp fresh thyme
1tbsp chopped fresh parsley
20g parmesan cheese
5 rashers of streaky bacon

Cook the bacon under the grill until crisp, cool and chop into small pieces. In a medium frying pan heat 1tbsp of the olive oil and cook the leeks over a moderate heat for 2 minutes.

Now add the crushed garlic, thyme and continue frying for a further minute before adding the white wine and reduce to almost evaporated. Next pour in cream and bring to the boil, season with salt and milled pepper add the parmesan and chopped parsley and keep warm until needed.

Drizzle the remaining olive oil over the slices of bread and cook either under the grill or ideally on a griddle pan until crisp and golden. Take the whole piece of garlic and rub a little over one half of the bread and lay them onto a serving plate. Top each with a spoonful of the creamed leeks, crispy bacon and finally a little chopped mint and a drizzle of olive oil.

What you need:

1 large steak , such as sirloin, rib-eye or rump
1 tsp olive oil
1 ciabatta bread roll, halved
1 tsp Dijon mustard
handful watercress
50g Stilton
splash balsamic vinegar

What you do:

Heat a frying pan or a griddle pan. Rub the steak with the olive oil, season, then cook for 2-4 mins on each side or until done to your liking. Put the steak on a plate to rest.

Put the roll halves cut-side down in the pan for 2 mins to soak up the meat juices and toast until golden brown. Spread the toasted side with the mustard and pile the watercress on top.

Cut the steak in half, sit on top of the watercress, then crumble over the Stilton. Drizzle with a splash of balsamic vinegar, tip over any steak resting juices and serve.
