For the fish stock add 2 and half pints water into a pan, add bones, star anise, dill, half onion, bay leaves, prawn shells, chopped leek and celery. Cook for a hour on slow simmer.

To make risotto cook diced onion, leek, garlic, ginger, celery in oil and butter for 10 mins with lid on low heat. Add cuttlefish mix then add rice then slowly add a ladle of stock and continue to mix non stop for twenty minutes, adding a ladle at a time until it's all absorbed. Add prawns 10 mins into the process, after around 15 minutes add cod cheeks, cook for further 15 minutes and then add picked mussels. Add the crab, parmesan and cream. To finish throw on the chopped chives, roasted sweet corn and blistered cherry tomatoes. Serve into warm bowl - the consistency should be like wet porridge.
