How to cook The Prince of Wales' favourite dish: Pheasant crumble pie
 
01:48
The Prince of Wales is the guest editor of Country Life's November 14 issue, which coincides precisely with his 70th birthday. One of the features commissioned by The Prince shows how to make his favourite dish, pheasant crumble pie. Here's how to make it yourself, as demonstrated by John Williams, executive chef at The Ritz in London. ‘I got this recipe from someone I know,’ writes HRH The Prince of Wales in next Wednesday’s issue of Country Life, which he has guest edited. ‘It is delicious. I invented a grouse one recently, Coq au Vin with Grouse, as well as Moussaka with Grouse (it doesn’t always have to be lamb), in other words Groussaka!’ The man cooking the recipe on this page is John Williams, a chef whose career began with a bag of grouse. ‘I’d just been taken on as an apprentice at The Percy Arms in Northumberland and they wanted me to pluck and gut them,’ The Ritz’s executive chef remembers, sitting in his office before the lunch service begins. ‘It was the first thing I had ever touched in a professional kitchen. I come from a seaside town, so I was much more used to fish and I’d definitely never encountered that aroma before,’ he divulges with a smile. ‘But, you know, today, it’s one of my favourite smells. Come the Glorious Twelfth, I’m outside that door anxiously waiting for the birds to arrive.’ Read more at https://www.countrylife.co.uk/food-drink/recipes/pheasant-crumble-pie-188476#f597rI9szsC8zy0L.99 #PrinceOfWalesCountryLife

Recipe: BBQ Asian steaks with pak choi and soy
 
03:08
Genevieve Taylor shared a delicious barbecue recipe with Country Life. *** Get more recipes at www.countrylife.co.uk/food-drink/recipes *** Ingredients: 350g basmati rice, soaked in plenty of cold water for an hour 2 tbsp vegetable oil 800g piece skirt steak, at room temperature (take out of the fridge at the same time as you begin to soak the rice) 4 large heads pak choi 1 tbsp toasted sesame oil Salt and freshly ground black pepper For the sauce: 2 spring onions, thinly sliced A thumb-sized piece of ginger, finely grated 2 cloves garlic, crushed Juice of 1 lime ¼ tsp Chinese five spice 6 tbsp soy sauce 2 tbsp honey 2 tbsp water A pinch of dried chilli flakes, to taste Black pepper Kitchen preparation: 1. Soak the rice for an hour in a bowl of cold water. Drain well. 2. Get the sauce ready to cook by adding all the ingredients to a jug, ready to pour into a hot heat-proof pan on the barbecue (a cast iron skillet is ideal with no plastic handles). Method 1. Fire up 2 out of 3 of the main burners on the barbecue and leave to heat up for 5 minutes. Then turn on the infrared sizzle zone which will be up to heat in an instant. 2. Put rice pan on the hot sizzle zone, add the oil and drained rice and stir well to coat the grains. Pour in recently boiled water (have a hot kettle to hand) to 1cm above the rice level. Bring back to boil, put the lid on tight and boil for one minute before transferring to the unlit burner to steam over indirect heat - making sure pan handle is turned so that barbecue lid can be closed. Providing you don’t take the pan lid off, the rice will take around 12 minutes to steam to perfection - but a few minutes longer will be fine too. 3. Start sauce by setting the cast iron skillet on the sizzle zone to heat up. When it’s really hot, pour in the sauce - it should bubble pretty much instantly - just let it sizzle for a few seconds before transferring to the middle burner. Reduce the flame to as low as possible and leave to keep warm, stirring once or twice, while you cook the steak. 4. Season the steak with a drizzle of oil, plenty of pepper and a little salt. Sear the steak on the sizzle zone pressing gently all over with the tongs to get maximum contact with the grill bars - a couple of minutes should do it, then turn and grill for about 3 more minutes on the other side. This should give a medium-rare steak, depending on thickness. Cook for another 30 seconds to a minute on each side if you prefer a medium to well done steak. Turn off sizzle zone. Transfer steak to the warming rack above the lit burners and leave to rest while the rice finishes cooking. Brush a little sauce over the steak as it rests. 5. Slice the pak choi in half through the root and drizzle over a little sesame oil. Sear for a couple of minutes each side over a hot grill until tender but still with plenty of crunch. To serve: Slice steak thinly across the grain and arrange on a platter, along with the pak choi. Drizzle over a little sauce. Serve the rest of the sauce separately, along with the rice.

Watch a delightful red squirrel playing in the wild in Cornwall for the first time in over 30 years
 
00:19
This is Ross. He's a red squirrel being reintroduced to Cornwall by the Cornwall Red Squirrel Project. The scheme is part of a concerted, nationwide effort to bring red squirrels back into the wild spearheaded by Red Squirrel Survival Trust, whose patron is The Prince of Wales. The last time a wild red squirrel was spotted in Cornwall was in 1984; most of Britain’s 140,000 are in Scotland, but there are also pockets in the north of England, Wales and on the Isle of Wight. By contrast its nemesis, the grey squirrel, numbers 2.5 million. Hopes are high that Ross and his partner Demelza will start to repopulate Cornwall with red squirrels, and in doing so reverse the damage done to this delightful native species when greys were introduced as an ornamental species 140 years ago. Many thanks to Ian Hampton of the Cornwall Red Squirrel Project for sharing this video with us.
