Bacon wrapped potato cake is fun to make delicious to eat. I make it as a weekday meal then fry any leftovers and serve with an egg for breakfast… double win.
Padron Peppers are one of my favourite snacks to eat with a beer. These salty, sometimes fiery peppers are ready in minutes and transport me back to the first time I ate them in Barcelona.
This cabbage side dish is so good. The textures of pecan and fine apple slices go beautifully with cabbage. It’s incredibly easy to make and goes brilliantly with roast pork.
Feta roasted with tomatoes, cannellini beans and figs is a simply beautiful autumn dish. I plonk the whole dish in the middle of the table then spread the soft, sweet and salty flavours onto warm bread and crackers.
Roasting Beetroots allow the beautiful, delicate flavour of this majestic vegetable to shine through. Just add olive oil, salt and sprigs of rosemary to create a perfect side dish.
We always end up growing more tomatoes than we can possibly eat in one summer so in September I pick the last of the crop and make sauces that I can use throughout the year.
We eat rice at least once a week and I make fluffy rice using this method that needs 1 minute of effort and 20 minutes of cooking. Ditch those plastic packets and make better rice using this fool-proof method.
This potato salad is no meagre side dish, it’s the main event. We had a really good potato haul this year so I’ve been able to make this hearty salad a few times.
Slowly cooking a shoulder of lamb with some classic Greek flavours is incredibly easy. The fork-soft lamb is wonderful in wraps and tacos or serve it alongside minted potatoes and pour over the amazing roasting juices.
The classic Caprese Salad gets a kebab twist which makes it a brilliant side dish for BBQs and serving lots of guests. Everyone gets the perfect portion size of cheese and tomatoes.
