Henry Harris’s gourmet recipes and factsheet for Cuisinart Cast Metal Food Processing System follows below:

To start…

Henry Harris' Cod’s Roe and Smoked Salmon Dip

300g smoked cods roe
100g smoked salmon pieces
1 clove of garlic, crushed
a generous pinch of cayenne pepper
an equally generous milling of black pepper
juice of one small lemon
75ml cream cheese
125ml olive oil

Pare the skin from the cod’s roe and place the roe the Cuisinart Cast Metal Food Processing System along with all the other ingredients except for the olive oil. Blitz the mixture until it is smooth.
With the blade still running add the oil in a very slow steady stream. If the mixture looks as if it is about to split/curdle then add a drop of boiling water from the kettle.
Check the seasoning, as lemon juice and more pepper are sometimes needed. Transfer to a bowl and store in the fridge for an hour before serving, with breadsticks.

Cuisinart Breadsticks

35g fresh yeast
175ml warm water
400g strong plain white flour
Pinch salt
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp dried oregano
30g butter, melted

Pour the yeast into the water and stir well to dissolve.
Insert the dough blade into the work bowl and add the flour, salt and oil. Fit the lid, select the dough function and with the processor running, pour the water slowly through the small feed tube. Once the dough starts to clean the inside of the work bowl and forms a ball, add the oregano and continue to process for 30-60 seconds, to knead.
Remove from the processor, cover and leave in a warm place for 1 hour. After an hour, knock back the dough and divide in two. Roll both balls into rectangles approximately 24 x 16cm. Cut each into 8 sticks.
Place onto a greased baking tray. Stand in a warm place for a further 10 minutes, then brush each with the melted butter.
Place in a preheated oven, 220°C/ 425°F, Gas Mark 7 and bake for 10 minutes, or until golden. Transfer to a cooling rack to cool. ©Cuisinart 2005.
Serve with cod’s roe and smoked salmon dip.

To follow…

Peppered Steak with Cognac Sauce

4 x 230/250g fillet steaks
6 tsp cracked pepper
4 tbs clarified butter
100 to 150g butter
100ml Cognac

To make cracked pepper:
Take 200gs of whole black peppercorns and place them in the Cuisinart Cast Metal Food Processing System. Run the machine for 15 to 30 seconds or until the peppercorns have broken into coarse pieces. There should be a fair amount of dust but no whole peppercorns.
Transfer the mixture to a sieve and shake out the dust over a bowl. Use your fingers to work the dust out. Discard the dust and keep the cracked pepper in an airtight jar until needed. Do this well in advance of cooking your steaks, as the dust is pretty strong.

Preparing the steaks:
Preheat the oven to 100C. Take the four fillet steaks, place them on a dish and press the pepper onto one cut side of each steak only and press it into the meat with the heel of your hand to ensure it is well attached. Then season with salt.
Heat the clarified butter in an oven proof frying pan and add the steaks pepper side down and cook briskly for three to five minutes or until that first side is crusted and brown. Then turn over the meat and cook for one minute. Tip out the clarified butter from the pan and slip in half of the regular butter. Turn down the heat to a medium temperature and let the butter foam and cook to a gentle hazelnut colour.
Baste the meat with the butter regularly. If the butter appears in danger of turning too dark, then just lower the heat. Continue this process for three to four minutes.
If cooking over gas then momentarily turn off the flame and add the Cognac. It will splutter a little and after thirty seconds the alcohol will have evaporated. Remove the steaks from the pan and transfer them on a dish to rest in the oven for 8 minutes. Turn off the oven.
Transfer the steaks to warm plates and add the juices that seeped out of the meat to the pan. Adjust the seasoning and then spoon the buttery juices over the steaks. Serve immediately.
This will give a good rare steak. To cook to medium rest the steaks in the oven without turning it off for five minutes, or for ten minutes if you want it well done. ©Henry Harris 2005.


The finale…

Baked Coconut And Ginger Syrup Pudding
5 tbs golden syrup
150gm butter, softened
175gm caster sugar
zest and juice of 1 lemon
3 eggs
75gm shredded coconut
half a jar of ginger jam
175gm plain flour
2 heaped teaspoons baking powder

Butter a large oval baking dish. Warm the syrup a little in a pan, just enough to make it runny. Pour it over the bottom of the baking dish so it forms a thin layer. Transfer it to the fridge for half an hour so that the syrup sets. This ensures that the syrup stays in a layer at the bottom when you add the sponge batter.
Preheat the oven to 160C. Combine the butter and sugar in the Cuisinart Cast Metal Food Processing System. Use the 2-wire whisk attachment to beat it until it is light and fluffy.
Add the lemon juice and zest. Whisk in the eggs one by one. Add the jam and coconut and beat again.
Sift the flour and baking powder together and whisk it into the mixture (5 seconds) is all it takes.
Take the dish out of the fridge and fill it with the sponge mixture. Transfer to the oven and bake for thirty to forty minutes. To test whether the sponge is cooked insert a skewer into the middle of the sponge, count to five and when you pull it out it should come out cleanly.
To serve, spoon into bowls and serve with lashings of thick cream. ©Henry Harris 2005.

Factsheet: Cuisinart Cast Metal Food Processing System
delicious magazine awards it 9/10 ‘a joy to use and hard-wearing’

Sophisticated Food Processing System
The Cuisinart Cast Metal Food Processing System combines state of the art technology and sleek design for perfect results.

It is the only consumer food processor system in the UK with a chrome finish cast metal body and an all-inclusive 20-year guarantee:
• Commercial grade induction motor
• Strong Lexan bowl with an extra wide feed tube
• Unique dough making features
• 2 wire rotary whisk
• Sharp and hardwearing blades

Intelligent Processing
The cast metal body makes it a very solid and durable product. The extra weight adds to the stability of the whole unit, while the unique design is ergonomic and compact for ease of use and cleaning.

The powerful induction motor automatically adjusts the speed to process different amounts and types of foods to perfection, yet it is quieter than a dishwasher.

Extra Large Capacity
The Cuisinart Cast Metal Food Processing System comes with a uniquely designed 3.7 litre bowl. The lid has an extra large feed tube allowing whole vegetables and fruits to be processed in one go. So there’s no need to chop first.

The bowl and lid are made of the highest quality Lexan, the same plastic used to make aeroplane windows. The material is very strong, durable and dishwasher safe.

Strong And Sharp Attachments
The blade, slicing and grating disks are made from surgical sharp Japanese steel, which means they are hard wearing and will never have to be sharpened again.
The attachments span the entire bowl leaving only 1. 5mm of space between the blade and edge. This means there is no need for additional bowls, as small and large quantities of food can be processed effectively in the same one.

Unique Dough Function
The Cuisinart Cast Metal Food Processing System has a patented kneading system, which can produce perfect dough in less than a minute.

The dough button automatically adjusts the motor to a slower speed to suit any type of dough, while the special blade kneads it to perfection.

Whisk Attachment
The 2-wire whisk with a rotary system is usually only found on food mixers. The planetary motion incorporates more air for professional results each time.
