    This is a very special bolognese sauce, zesty and bright. You can also adjust the amount of carrot and nutmeg to your own particular taste - this is how I like it.

    Serves: 6 

    • 750g beef mince
    • 7 carrots, coarsely chopped
    • 1 small white onion, chopped
    • 4 slices ham
    • 125g butter
    • 440ml beef stock
    • 180g tomato paste
    • 1 lemon, zested
    • 2 bay leaves
    • 1 pinch dried basil
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground nutmeg
    • 1 tablespoon heavy cream

    1. Place beef mince in a large, deep frypan. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble very finely and set aside.
    2. In a food processor, chop the carrots, onion and ham.
    3. Melt butter in a large saucepan over low heat. Stir in carrot mixture and simmer for 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in cooked beef, beef stock, tomato paste, lemon zest, bay leaves, basil and nutmeg. Simmer over lowest heat, partially covered, for at least 2 hours, stirring occasionally.
    4. Immediately before serving, stir in cream and mix well.
