To celebrate ‘The Power of Frozen’, Iceland invited me to a day of Christmas frivolities, cocktails and chef demos to highlight some of their Christmas range.
Halloween and Guy Fawkes are over, and I have zero qualms in admitting I am one of the first to fling the Christmas fairy lights up. Albeit hoisting up a bauble clad Christmas tree already might be somewhat premature, I’m eagerly in the mood for Christmas and everything it brings.
An absolute must on Sundays, the classic Roast Pork. This recipe needs a good few hours as the pork is slow roasted for four hours, giving it the texture of soft pulled pork but with a tip for the best crackling. Serve with onion and cider gravy, it’s the ultimate Sunday indulgence.
A total hit with the kids in my family, these marshmallow crispy pumpkins are fun and super easy to make and make a great addition to the Halloween spread.
More often than not, the day after the night before, I need stodge, cheese and carbs. I want something easy to prepare and leave the stove and oven to do all the work for me. I bring you my Pork and Sage Lasagne. A slightly different take on the original we all know and love and a little bit lighter,…
This is such an easy and comforting dinner but looks like you’ve made a bit of an effort – Winning. My sticky and spicy meatballs carry an Asian flavour so team with a ribboned cucumber salad and steamed rice or noodles. Drench it all in the sweet and spicy sauce and dig in.
Confit Duck Ragu is dish that needs no explanation other than if you desire a heartwarming dish that’s somewhat a hug in a bowl in the winter months, then this is most definitely it.
Minestrone soup needn’t come from a can when it’s this simple to make. This is my fail-safe recipe and one I do, usually right before I’m about to go on holiday and need to empty the fridge. Make it for a light dinner, healthy lunch or make and freeze into individual portions for a quick and easy supper.
Juicy prawns, encased in crispy tempura batter and drenched in a sweet, spicy and tangy hot sauce. Get the kitchen roll, it’s about to get messy …
A comforting dish that resembles a carbonara but has been refined with the subtle flavour of saffron. Don’t feel the need to team this dish with anything, it is quite simply delicious on its own and simply must be served in abundance.
