Marcus Wareing

Born in Lancashire, Marcus Wareing’s restaurant career started at The Savoy in London when he was 18. From there he moved to Le Gavroche to work alongside Albert Roux, then fine-tuned his expertise in classic French cooking in international hotels and resorts.

In 1993 Marcus began working alongside Gordon Ramsay at London’s Aubergine – it was the start of a long-running professional relationship between the two chefs. Two years later, he travelled to New York and Paris to work with other respected chefs and was named the Restaurant Association’s Young Chef of the Year. In 1999 he opened Pétrus in London's Knightsbridge, which won a Michelin star within seven months. In 2008 Marcus re-opened the restaurant as chef patron and owner. ‘Marcus Wareing at the Berkeley’ has retained two Michelin stars and five AA rosettes. Marcus has won a string of awards, including GQ chef of the year 2009, AA chef of the year 2009 and in 2010 Marcus Wareing at the Berkeley was named London’s Best Restaurant by Harden’s.

Watercress Soup Recipe with Soft-Poached Egg by Marcus Wareing

To ensure you retain the wonderful vibrant green colour in this watercress soup recipe it’s essential to chill the soup immediately, as soon as it is cooked. So do make sure you have a bowl of iced water and a sieve at the ready.

I also recommend pre-poaching the eggs and setting them aside in iced water. Then you simply need to reheat them for two minutes in simmering water before serving.

300g watercress, put a few small sprigs in cold water in the fridge to serve

1 mashing potato, very thinly sliced

750ml hot vegetable or chicken Stock

Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Soft Poached Eggs

1. Pick all the leaves from the watercress stalks, chop the stalks into small pieces and roughly chop the leaves.

2. Fill a bowl with ice and water and set another bowl on top – this will help to cool the soup quickly. Heat the butter in a large saucepan.

3. Add the potato and gently cook until softened but not coloured. Add a few twists of black pepper, salt and 375ml of stock and bring to the boil.

4. Drop in the watercress stalks, return to the boil and cook for 1 minute.

5. Pour in the remaining stock, bring to the boil, then add the watercress leaves. Cover and cook for 3 minutes.

6. Blitz in a blender or using a stick blender until smooth and pass through a sieve into the bowl inside the iced water bowl.

7. Stir in the milk and mustard, then season. Whisk to mix and chill the soup quicker. When cool, cover and keep in the fridge.

8. Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan/gas 6 and line a baking sheet with baking parchment.

9. Pulse the mustard crumb ingredients in a food processor to a coarse crumb, then spread in a thin layer on the baking sheet.

10. Bake for 12–15 minutes, turning halfway, until deep golden and crunchy. Leave to cool.

11. To poach the eggs, boil a large saucepan of water with a good pinch of salt.

12. Crack the eggs into four bowls and add a few drops of vinegar to each.

13. Whisk the boiling water so it swirls in a whirlpool and turn the heat to medium-low – a gentle simmer – then slide in the eggs.

14. Poach for 3 minutes, remove with a slotted spoon and place in iced water.

15. To reheat, place in boiling salted water for 2 minutes. Heat the soup, then ladle into shallow bowls and sit the eggs on top.

16. Garnish with the reserved watercress sprigs and spoon over the mustard crumb. Finish with a sprinkling of salt, a twist of pepper and a drizzle of olive oil and serve.
