1
Start with the garlic sauce. Place the garlic and milk in a pan over a medium heat. Cook until the milk has reduced to three-quarters the original volume – about 30 minutes – or until the mixture thickens slightly and becomes creamy
2
Preheat the oven to 190°C/gas mark 5
3
Prepare the suckling pig racks by cutting away the skin and any excess fat from the joint, leaving a thin layer of fat coating the meat
  • 2 racks of suckling pig, French-trimmed
4
Heat a large frying pan over a high heat and brown each rack all over, turning to make sure the sides are evenly coloured
5
Transfer the browned meat to a rack over a roasting tray and place in the oven. Roast for 8 minutes, or a few minutes longer for well done. Once cooked, remove from the oven and allow to rest for 10 minutes
6
Meanwhile, bring a pan of salted water to the boil and cook the purple potatoes whole for 15–20 minutes until soft when pierced with a knife
7
Drain and allow the potatoes to cool a little then peel away the skins whilst still warm. Roughly mash the potatoes to achieve a chunky mash – it should still have some texture. Season well and mix in a drizzle of olive oil
8
Cut the rested racks of suckling pig into portions (2 ribs each). Pass the garlic-infused sauce through a fine sieve and discard the garlic cloves
9
To serve, divide the sauce between the serving plates, add quenelles of the mashed purple potato and top with the ribs. Garnish with a sprinkling of sliced apricots
