This is a vegan take on a classic Sichuan dish, the dish is usually made with pork mince but here I’ve substituted that for peanuts which are simmered in the sauce to give a similar soft texture. The signature of the dish along with most Sichuan cooking is intense heat
A classic Indian takeaway dish, chicken jalfrezi brings tender chicken together with crisp stir-fried vegetables in a thick and punchy sauce. Jalfrezi is a relatively recent innovation in Indian cooking. The dish is cooked more similarly to a stir fry than an Indian curry.
This recipe brings a classic and very simple combination of flavours, fennel seeds, rosemary and orange peel to form a delicious crust on pan-fried salmon to create an elegant salad. The salmon is served alongside a fresh salad of spinach, macadamia nuts and radish with a simple lemon vinaigrette.
These enchiladas pack plenty of punch with classic Mexican flavours and a homemade red enchilada sauce. They make a great, crowd-pleasing mid-week meal and could be a good alternative for those currently doing Veganuary.
The pork is coated in a dry rub, then basted in a sauce made from beer and vinegar then finished with a sweet and spicy vinegar-based sauce. The sauce is very lightly flavoured, and puts the focus on complimenting the natural rich flavours of the pork.
Lentils provencial is a classic french dish, a rich stew of lentils and mushrooms. This dish has been made for centuries and is good comforting home cooking. The major flavours are tomato, basil and tarragon.
It's best served piping hot with chunks of fresh bread.
A classic Indian dish, daal is made all across the subcontinent in varying regional styles. A bold full-flavoured sauce with a mixture of pulses and lentils.
German food is the ultimate comfort food and this recipe is a great example of that. A classic style pot roast simmered in a beer-based sauce. Served over mashed potatoes and really does feel homey.
A friend pointed out to me that I haven’t really posted any curries or Indian food on my blog up to this point which is what inspired me to start working on this recipe. Malai kofta is a personal favourite dish, fried potato and paneer koftas drenched in a gravy that is spicy and slightly sweet.
This salad is beautiful, elegant and simple, the chicken is pan fried with a combination of aromatics then served over watercress toped with apples, walnuts and a crème fraiche dressing. This dish is great as a starter or as a light meal.
