Lancashire-born Marcus started cooking at The Savoy aged 18. He honed his classic French skills alongside Albert Roux at Le Gavroche, then became sous chef to Gordon Ramsay. This partnership lasted 15 years, the last nine of which Marcus spent as chef patron of Pe1trus. In 2008, Marcus and Gordon parted ways and Marcus rebranded Pe1trus as Marcus Wareing at The Berkeley, where he retained two Michelin stars and remains at the forefront of fine dining.

2.    Preheat oven to 190oC (170oC fan) mark 5. Lightly dust a work surface with flour and roll out pastry. Use to line a deep 25,5cm (10in) fluted tart tin, leaving excess pastry hanging over the edges. Line pastry with a large sheet of baking parchment, then fill with baking beans.

3.    Bake for 15min or until pastry sides are set. Lift out paper and beans and trim the edges of the tart to neaten. Return to oven and bake for 8-10min more or until base is lightly golden and feels sandy. Take out of oven. Set aside.

4.    Turn down oven to 130oC (110oC fan) mark 1/2. For filling, put cream into a pan; bring to the boil. In another large bowl, whisk yolks and sugar together; pour in hot cream and mix well. Strain through a fine sieve into a large jug.

5.    Put pastry tin on a baking sheet; move to oven, then carefully fill with egg mixture. Sprinkle over nutmeg (to taste); bake for 45-50min or until custard looks fully set (it will still have a generous wobble). Take out of oven; cool before carefully lifting out of tin. Serve in slices
