Gregg Wallace, from TV's Masterchef, loves this indulgent dish. "Putting cayenne and Parmesan on a parsnip transforms it completely. I have never matched these with another food - I nibble them in front of the TV."
4 medium parsnips
50g (1.75oz) Parmesan, finely grated
50g (1.75oz) plain flour
1 tsp cayenne pepper
Salt & black pepper
Dripping, lard or vegetable oil, for roasting
Achieving the perfect results
