French ‘master chef’ Urbain Dubois – who was in the employ of Prince Orloff, former Russian ambassador to France – ‘discovered’ the red meat dish in the mid-19th century. Over time it has been adapted to personal tastes and this particular recipe has been adapted especially for people with chewing and/or swallowing problems
600g pork (boneless ribs)
6 slices of cooked ham
200g grated cheese (Emmental or Gruèyre)
500ml brown cream sauce
1 glass white wine
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp red pesto
1 tsp paprika powder
1 tbsp lemon juice
2 cloves garlic
1 knob of butter
1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
2. Chop the carrots, onion, and the garlic into small pieces and slice the mushrooms.
3. Cut the pork lengthwise – but don’t cut completely through.
4. Season the inside of the pork with salt, pepper, paprika and rub with red pesto.
5. Place the slices of ham on top of the pork and layer with grated cheese.
6. Roll the roast tightly, press firmly and tie with twine.
1. Place the meat in a greased roasting tin and roast in the preheated oven for 40 minutes – regularly basting with the juices.
2. Meanwhile, fry the chopped onions, carrots and garlic in a pan, without browning. Add the mushrooms and sprinkle with lemon juice.
3. Stew the vegetables until al-dente. 4. Deglaze with the white wine and reduce until most of the liquid has evaporated.
1. Take the dish out of the oven, remove the roasting fat and carve into thick slices.
2. Place the slices back into the roasting tin and pour the brown cream sauce over the stewed vegetables.
3. Put the complete dish back into the oven and roast at 120 °C for a final five minutes.
Chewing and swallowing
Level 6: cut a portion of the roast into smaller pieces.
Level 5: grind separately a portion of the roast and trimmings.
Level 4: mix separately a portion of the roast with the sauce until the required consistency.
Level 3: mix and sieve separately a portion of the roast with sauce until the required consistency.

Ireland survey aims to uncover link between pesticides and Parkinson’s disease
Previous studies of vineyard and agricultural workers in France and the US highlight potential correlations between pesticide exposure and Parkinson’s risk. Now, a team is conducting the first study in Ireland to investigate this potential link. Last week, researchers from University College Cork, Ireland, took to the country’s National Ploughing Championships – a three-day country show, agricultural trade fair and ploughing competition. Their goal? To “gather information on the environmental risks associated with Parkinson’s in Ireland”, according to Professor Aideen Sullivan of the university’s Department of Anatomy and Neuroscience. “Our survey is a broad-stroke approach. We are going to ask people what categories of pesticides they’ve used,” said Sullivan’s colleague, Dr Lucy Collins-Stack. “We are going into this thinking there may be a stronger link with rural settings rather than towns, but we still want to look at both.” The survey can be completed online.
Is there a link between Parkinson’s disease and blood vessel dysfunction?
Scientists in Slovakia have investigated the link between blood vessel dysfunction and Parkinson’s – and found that dopamine agonists may have an impact. The team studied the function of the endothelium – a membrane which lines the heart and blood vessels and helps control blood fluidity – in 41 people with the condition and 41 people without. Endothelial function was then measured through a parameter that assessed how easily blood could flow through the vessels. The results showed that while more people with Parkinson’s had endothelial dysfunction compared to those without, the difference did not reach statistical significance. However, the researchers noted that the findings suggested “an association between smoking, dopamine agonists, and impaired endothelial function” in those with the condition. Outlining the study’s limitations, the team noted that more research is needed to explore this potential link.
New swab test may help with Parkinson’s disease diagnosis
Researchers at the University of Manchester, UK, have drawn on one woman’s sense of smell to develop a swab test that may be used to detect Parkinson’s. The scientists used the test to analyse sebum (a type of oily substance on the skin) in 79 people with Parkinson’s and a control group of 71 healthy individuals. The team identified more than 4,000 different compounds in the participant samples – including 500 that were unique to those living with the condition. The test was developed with the help of Joy Milne from Perth, Scotland, whose unique sense of smell meant that she noticed a change in her late husband Les’s odour twelve years before he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s. Speaking to the BBC, Professor Perdita Barran, who led the research, described the test as potentially “transformative” – and said that the team hopes to roll the test out to people in…
