Apricot Frangipane Tart

Apricot Frangipane Tart

Apricots aren't always the easiest fruit to work with, but few can resist the delights of a beautiful apricot tart. We invited our friend Lucy from the Pockeredge Pantry to show us her recipe for this stunning tart. Using her glorious Apricot Jam, full of big chunks of fruit, our Matthews flour and ground almonds we make a tart befitting the best French patisseries.
Miso Mushroom Poke Bowl

Miso Mushroom Poke Bowl

You could easily be mistaken for thinking that a Poke bowl is a Japanese invention, but actually it's one of the national dishes of Hawaii. Slap bang in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, Hawaiian cuisine has lots of influences from the Orient.
Cauliflower & Sweet Potato Biryani with Roasted Cashew Nuts

Cauliflower & Sweet Potato Biryani with Roasted Cashew Nuts

A biryani, in principal, is a fairly simple concept – bake rice in stock with spices, meat or vegetables until the rice is fluffy and tender. However, you will completely live or die by the quality of the rice you use. If you end up with rice that sticks together, you'll need to go back to biryani school or get hold of better quality rice - the supermarkets are certainly not the place to look for that. 
Moroccan Lamb with Spiced Couscous and Tahini

Moroccan Lamb with Spiced Couscous and Tahini

When I first worked in London, there was a Kebab shop close to us in Soho that we would often frequent after a few post-work beers. Although the kebab meat was carved from a large rotisserie, it didn’t resemble the processed 'elephant leg' that often gives kebabs a bad name.

Best Ever Chilli Con Carne with Habanero Salsa & Mexican Green Rice

Best Ever Chilli Con Carne with Habanero Salsa & Mexican Green Rice

Chilli con carne is a huge family favourite of ours and although this is really more of a Tex-Mex dish, the array of Mexican ingredients that we have will transform your everyday chilli into the most delicious meal.
Malaysian Chicken Laksa

Malaysian Chicken Laksa

Although it’s the national dish of both Malaysia and Singapore, Laksa can be found right across South East Asia, it’s basically comfort food. The fragrant, noodle soup has hundreds of variations but it’s always so popular and my version is really quick to whip up on a busy midweek evening.
Pinsa Romana Pizza - three ways

Pinsa Romana Pizza - three ways

Tired of supermarket 'Frisbee style' pizzas? It’s true that in the last few years, the standard of shop-bought pizza has improved, let's face it, we've all eaten some really truly terrible ones in our lifetime...
Chicken Korma with Cumin Pilau Rice

Chicken Korma with Cumin Pilau Rice

If you love Indian food as much as I do, you probably want to put a quick mid-week curry on the kitchen table, but find it hard to put the time aside to cook it from scratch

The Best Crumble Recipe

The Best Crumble Recipe

For me, if there was one dish that conjures up childhood memories, when the sun always shone and life was full of simple pleasures, it’s Blackberry & Apple Crumble...
Traditional Simnel Cake

Traditional Simnel Cake

Simnel Cake is a delicious rich traditional Easter cake, made with fruit and almond paste. Although marzipan is readily available in the shops, homemade almond paste is very quick and easy and tastes so much better.
Recipe for Karimix Goan Fish Curry

Vibrant Goan Fish Curry

Although Vindaloo is probably the most celebrated dish from Goa, in my opinion, their fish curries can’t be beaten. With the classic flavour combination of ginger, garlic, tamarind and chilli, our Goan Curry paste is absolutely delicious.
Slow Cooked Shin of Beef and Fresh Tagliatelle

Slow Cooked Shin of Beef and Fresh Tagliatelle

There is something primal about making your own pasta, a bit like making your own bread. I don’t always have time to do this (or the organisational ability), but when I do, I like to make it special.
