  • 1 celery stick, finely chopped
  • 2 medium onions, peeled and finely chopped
  • 2 carrots, peeled and diced
  • 1 large sprig fresh rosemary
  • 30ml / 2 tbsp plain flour
  • 30ml / 2 tbsp tomato purée
  • 45ml / 3 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 425ml / ¾ pint good, hot lamb stock
  • Salt and freshly milled black pepper
  • 100g / 4oz sweet corn

For the crumble

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to Gas mark 4-5, 180-190ºC, 350-375ºF.

  2. Heat the oil in a large non- stick pan and cook the mince in batches for 5-8 minutes until brown under a moderate heat.

  3. Add the celery, onions and carrots. Cook for 5 minutes. Stir in the rosemary.

  6. Meanwhile, to prepare the crumble, place flours into a large bowl. Rub in the butter, until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Stir in the cheese and chives.
