3. Brown the legs in olive oil in a medium hot pan.
4. Lower the heat, add the peeled -inch artichoke, ginger and half the shallots.
5. Continue cooking the mixture over medium heat until shallots and artichokes are golden.
6. Deglaze this mixture with the port, reduce by 2/3, then add the stock.
7. When stock comes to a simmer, cover and place in an oven at 160C for 1 hour or until the legs are tender.
8. Remove legs and artichokes. Strain the stock and reduce by half. Leave the legs and artichokes to cool at room temperature.
9. Place the peeled salsify in milk with the remaining shallots, bay leaves, fresh thyme, salt and pepper in a casserole or braising dish and place in an oven at 160F for 20 minutes. Salsify should be just fork tender.
10. Remove salsify and shallots, and set aside.
11. Cut ball of dough into quarters. Half of the dough is sufficient for this recipe. You can freeze the remainder.
12. Roll out dough as thinly as possible into 2" x 6" x 6" squares. Set aside covered until required in recipe. (A pasta machine is great too!)
13. Take the cooled artichokes and fork them down to a coarse mash-like consistency using some of the sauce to moisten as you go.
14. Pick the squab meat off the bone and mince it.
15. Combine the two and check the seasoning.
16. Finish the mixture with scallions and coriander. Place mixture over the dough square and roll the log away from you (pinwheel effect). Pinch the ends closed, egg-wash them thoroughly and roll in toasted pecans.

3. Remove squab. Allow it to rest for 5 minutes.
4. Meanwhile toss the salsify and shallots with the picked arugula, add 1 tablespoon of jus to help moisten.
