Clove of garlic
7 tbsp fruit vinegar

200ml Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil
Good drizzle of Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil with Lemon
Basil leaves, to dress
Olive Sticks (makes 8-10 sticks)
50g black olives
½ garlic clove
10g sundried tomatoes3 tbsps Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil with Lemon
Zest of ½ lemon
1 sheet of ready roll puff pastry
20g parmesan, grated
2 sprigs of thyme
To make the gazpacho, roughly chop the tomatoes, pepper, celery, garlic, and shallot. Add to a blender with the raspberries, vinegar. Partially blend then slowly add the Rapeseed Oil and blend until smooth. Season to taste.
Chill for 30 minutes then sieve before serving. To serve, add basil leaves and a drizzle of Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil with Lemon.
For the olive sticks, preheat the oven at 200C / 180C Fan / 400F / Gas Mark 6.
Blend together the olives, garlic, tomatoes, oil, thyme leaves and lemon zest. This will form a fine paste to spread onto half of the pastry sheet. Fold over the other half of the sheet to form a sandwich.
Refrigerate for 30 minutes then cut into thin strips and twist from both ends. Place on a lined baking sheet and generously sprinkle over the parmesan before baking for 5-7 minutes.
