This method of sautéing chicken before cooking it in wine and stock can be found all across Europe. Here however, I’ve settled for a recipe that firmly nods to France, recalling my time living in the Dordogne in the 1990s. During that year, I developed a friendship with Suzette, a frisky octogenarian, who would always insist I stay for lunch ...

A trip to San Francisco wouldn’t be complete without a meal at Zuni café to sample their roastchicken and bread salad. The famous salad delivers tender juicy pieces of chicken sitting on a bed ofroasted chunks of bread, soaked in chicken juices and a delicious dressing punctuated with currantsand pine and bitter and peppery salad leaves.To make things quicker, I’m ...

This is a one-pot pasta that’s so quick and easy you’ll be amazed! Use a wide shallow casserole pot for this recipe to not only ensure that the pasta fits but that there’s enough evaporation to produce the right sauce consistency.  I will be demonstrating this on 11th March 2021 at 4.30pm as part of a live session with Norman ...

Anis is a brilliant partner for sweet earthy carrots. Add some goat's cheese and pomegranate molasses to the mix and you have a perfect balance of salt and sweet that will keep you coming back from more.  You can, of course, use orange carrots in place of purple! Ingredients 25g butter 4 purple carrots, peeled and coarsely grated or julienned ...

If you’re short on time, baking risottos is a great way to give you an extra 20 minutes to do your other jobs as opposed to being chained to the stove adding stock one ladle at a time. This British take on the classic dish offers a refreshing change and gives you something different to do with your golden beets. ...

This bright and sunny soup will cheer up even the gloomiest of days.  Warmth comes from ginger, turmeric and a mere touch of chilli.  Enriched with coconut milk and then topped with roast chickpeas, it’s a complete meal in itself. I like my vegetable soups nice and thick and this is no exception.   Feel free to loosen it down a ...

Over the past few months, I’ve regularly been roasting lovely dry squashes and then covering in a delicious sweet and sour (agrodolce) marinade to make a wonderful side dish or starter course.  Here’ I’ve adapted that recipe for celeriac which I think works equally well. Ingredients Serves 4 as a side dish 1 large celeriac root (about 800g) Extra virgin ...

I just love creamed spinach and other green leaves; the leaves become wonderfully silky and so comforting combined with a creamy sauce. This method does, of course, add a heap of fat to otherwise calorie free leaves. However, befitting of the winter months, this dish will stoke your internal fire needed to get through the colder winter days! Serves 2 ...

We all have memories of fouls smelling overcooked sprouts but cook them properly, and a sprout is a wonderful thing!  Here, maple syrup balances any bitterness in the sprouts whilst orange zest, walnuts and Stilton bring a lovely touch of seasonality to the recipe. This simple recipe is delicious served hot as a side dish but also can be served ...

There’s something incredibly comforting and a little bit naughty about dipping crispy deep-fried cauliflower florets into rich salty blue cheese & buttery chilli sauces. Apart from the cauliflower, there really is nothing healthy about this recipe; but the occasional indulgence is absolutely fine in my book! And at this time of year, when the clocks have just gone back, it ...

RI’m a huge fan of sweet and sour flavours. There’s a natural sweetness in carrots which makes them perfect when paired with a vinegar reduction and some salty grilled halloumi for an umami kick! Ingredients 4-5 carrots ½ tsp fennel seeds, crushed 4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil 3 tbsp white balsamic vinegar ½ tsp sugar   1 tbs finely ...

This super quick pasta recipe is traditionally made with orecchiette. However, I think it also teams with many other pastas very well; and I’ve used spaghetti here.  It may seem strange to boil broccoli until within an inch of its life, but it needs to be soft enough to be broken down into a thick sauce with golden garlic and ...

Squash and pumpkin are always best when they aren’t laden with too much water; the flesh will be firmer, richer in flavour and less inclined to disintegrate.  So, try to get one from a grower or grocer you trust, or spend a little bit more on a supermarket one. You can use any wholegrain you like here but I particularly ...

This recipe is inspired by kuku sabzi, an amazing Persian style frittata packed full of fresh green herbs and aromatic cinnamon, cardamom and cumin. Traditionally the recipe should also contains a few tiny dried rose petals, but those are harder to come by so I’ve left them out of this recipe; feel free to add a sprinkling of these ground ...

WI love cooking with beetroot leaves, it’s such a waste to throw them away!  They taste a little like chard but have sweeter notes and work really well when wilted in warm salads such as this recipe.  You could, of course, use chard or spinach, but if you have beetroot leaves knocking around, give it a go! Serves 2 Ingredients ...
