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.

Researchers have finally identified brain cells linked to Parkinson’s disease
For decades, scientists have known that Parkinson’s is associated with the death of dopamine-producing cells in the brain. Now, researchers from the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, US, have discovered the specific subtype of brain cells that die in Parkinson’s disease. Using a technique called single-cell RNA signalling, which enables the individual analysis of cells within a tissue for activity and protein production, researchers identified 10 subtypes of dopamine-producing cells within the donated brains of people who died from causes unrelated to Parkinson’s. The team carried out the same investigation on people who had died with Parkinson’s or a condition with similar symptoms called Lewy body dementia. They discovered that only one subtype of the cells had reduced in number – which suggests many of these cells had died while the people were living. It is hoped that the findings could lead to better understanding of Parkinson’s causes and…
Tiny DBS implant shows potential to advance Parkinson’s disease treatment
In an innovative trial by North Bristol NHS Trust, UK, surgeons have succeeded in implanting a tiny deep brain stimulation (DBS) device into a person’s skull. Their aim? To address symptoms of Parkinson’s. Designed with a tiny battery system that is inserted into the skull, the DBS device delivers electric impulses to targeted areas of the brain through electric probes. In doing so, it works to address abnormal brain cell activity associated with Parkinson’s – and may help to ease symptoms. One of around 25 patients selected for the year-long trial has described the device’s impact as “amazing”. Commenting on the results of the trial so far, consultant neurologist Dr Alan Whone of North Bristol NHS Trust said: “We are hopeful that if these findings hold up, we will have a significant technical advance by which to improve Parkinson’s care across the world.”
Could a specialised smartwatch support people with Parkinson’s disease?
A specialised smartwatch, which could help those living with Parkinson’s to better manage their condition, will be rolled out to thousands of people in England. The Parkinson’s Kinetigraph, developed by the National Health Service (NHS) in Plymouth and the University of Plymouth, UK, contains sensors designed to monitor the wearer’s activity and buzz with medication reminders. Data collected from the watch – which detects excessive movement, immobility and sleep disturbances – is shared with healthcare providers, allowing for improvements to physiotherapy and prescriptions based on patient needs. Commenting on the smartwatch’s launch, NHS England chief executive Amanda Pritchard said: “Not only is it better for these people living with Parkinson’s, but it is also more efficient for the NHS, freeing up space and time in hospitals for our hard-working staff.” UK health secretary Sajid Javid, meanwhile, described the Kinetigraph as a “fantastic example of how technology is driving cutting-edge innovation…
