This recipes comes from Dancer and Graphic artist Martin James. Martin, who originally comes from New Zealand, is now living with his wife and children in Copenhagen as he is currently principal Dancer with The Royal Danish Ballet. You will be able to find out more about Martin when his Biography page is published.

Being so gifted it seems unfair that Martin should also be talented in the kitchen as well but he has agreed to share some of his recipes with us which is great news.


700g sweet tender young carrots, trimmed and scrubbed
300ml light lager
25g butter
1 teaspoon soft brown sugar
salt and pepper


  • Put the carrots and lager into a saucepan and bring to the boil.
  • Cook for 10 minutes until just tender, then add the butter and sugar.
  • Boil vigorously uncovered until the carrots are cooked and the liquid is reduced to a shiny glaze.
