  • This is a new spin on an old favourite, using Chinese cabbage, Brussels sprouts (they are really just little cabbages!) and the fabulous flavours of lemon myrtle and saffron.
  • This classic French peasant dish is simple and clean and presents elegantly. The name translates as ‘beef on a string’ because, in the traditional version, the beef fillet is tied and suspended in a pot of simmering stock. Using Thermomix, we can get exactly the same result without any string sorcery.
  • A great brownie must be chewy, moist and rich, with a bright crackling top. A brownie is not about lift, it's about lusciousness. This is a classic recipe that ticks all the brownie boxes!

    Fall-apart spiced meat, a tart and zesty salsa, grilled greens all tucked into a taco - this dish is a winner! It's great for a family meal but I've also served it for casual gatherings with all the fixings laid out for people to make their own tacos. The flavours are brilliant! Thanks to Hagen's Organics for the inspiration!

    A slow-cooked, succulent stew with central European flavours. It’s hearty and honest, simple and sustaining and I always think of my Hungarian grandmother when I eat it.
  • One of my absolute favourite projects is to source chef’s recipes and share them with my community. This savoury waffle is one of those and it’s brilliant! I ate it at Rare Hare with horseradish cream and salmon caviar: the combination of crunchy-soft waffle, the creamy kick of the horseradish and the pop of the caviar was just stunning. If you don't have a waffle iron, just make wumpets :)

    Meat falling off the bone. A rich braising sauce. Coconut rice. A nutty Thai-style coleslaw. Have I got you yet?

    Succulent lamb shanks, the goodness of barley, root veg and greens, and the bright zing of dill oil add up to a sustaining and satisfying casserole.

    Rendang is a typical Malaysian curry, an absolute favourite that's loved all around the world. There are countless variations - today's is cooked by Malay cookbook author Suriya Abdullah, who I was delighted to spend time with in Kuala Lumpur.
