A great nut loaf is a truly lovely, if rare creature. Like it’s meatloaf cousin, when done right it is a comfort food classic; hearty and warming, tender and delicious. Scott Graham makes a traditional nut roast full of hazelnuts and chestnuts, flecked with aromatic thyme and sage, along with parsnips and sweet potatoes for sweetness. Each loaf is wrapped in napa cabbage before being steamed, which helps lock in flavour and moisture. Slices are topped with a savoury cremini mushroom sauce and served with an asparagus salad on the side.
