BANANA TARTIN & CREAMY RISOTTO WITH BACON AND JERUSALEM ARTICHOKES

For those of you who remember when I did the READY,STEADY, COOK at The Earthfair Market in Tokai a while back... OK quite a while back. Well I had so much fun and chef Ian and I won (YAY!) Here are the winning recipes so you can make the delicious food at home. I remember it being really delicious  and have made the Risotto several times since then - so you should really try it! I know the Banana Tartin isn't wheat free but you could always leave off the pastry.
 
These recipes are compliments of chef Ian Cawkwell - Thanks Ian.
