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.
