Grease deep 17cm (6¾-inch) square cake pan.

Sprinkle gelatine over the water in a small heatproof bowl; stand bowl in a small saucepan of simmering water. Stir until gelatine dissolves.

Stir sugar and ¾ cup of the extra water in a medium saucepan over medium heat, without boiling, until sugar dissolves. Bring to the boil. Boil, uncovered, without stirring, until temperature of the syrup reaches 116°C/240°F (soft ball stage) on a sugar thermometer. Simmer at 116°C for 5 minutes, without stirring, regulating heat to maintain temperature at 116°C. Remove pan from heat.

Meanwhile, place cornflour in another medium saucepan; gradually stir in the remaining extra water. Bring to the boil, stirring, until the mixture thickens.

Gradually whisk hot sugar syrup, gelatine mixture and glucose into the cornflour mixture; bring to the boil. Reduce heat; simmer, stirring, about 10 minutes or until mixture thickens a little more. Remove pan from heat; whisk in rosewater, tint with colouring.

Strain mixture through a fine sieve into cake pan; skim any scum from surface. Stand 15 minutes; cover surface with lightly greased baking paper, stand 3 hours or overnight to set.

Melt chocolate. Turn turkish delight onto a board; cut into squares with an oiled knife. Using a fork, dip squares into chocolate, drain off excess; place on baking-paper-lined tray, sprinkle tops with nuts. Refrigerate 1 hour or until chocolate sets.

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
