BBQ Beef Short Rib Burgers ’n’ Slaw

Beef short ribs have to be one of my favourite cuts. These ones are packed with flavour and cooked on the bone low ’n’ slow, until they pretty much fall apart. Shredded and tossed in my barbecue sauce, I serve…

Blackberry & Almond Cake


This cake is a homage to my all time favourite summer berry. Blackberries are little jewels of goodness. Bursting with flavour, sweet yet tart and rich in colour. Paired with almonds they make a great combo. If you can’t find…

Chicken, Leek & Tarragon Tart

Leftover roast chicken was the inspiration for this tasty tart. With the addition of some leeks, mustard, tarragon, cream, eggs and cheese it was on the table and gone in no time. I’ve made the pastry myself, but you can…

Gourmet Hock Dogs

Smoked ham hocks are a godsend as they’re cheap, delicious and wickedly versatile. I love to put them in a pot and let them bubble away for hours with aromatics until they’re flaky and tender. Here, I’ve put them to…

Italian Meatball Subs

These are the kind of meatball subs you’d imagine devouring in a classic Italian New York restaurant. They are hearty, comforting and made just like the nonnas do back in Sicily. So you’ve gotta give them a go. Now. Capiche?

My All Day Sausage & Egg Burger

Forget starting the day with the full English, this juicy little number will get you out of the starting blocks and keep you cranking right up til lunch. A brioche bun topped with a chili avocado smash, peppery watercress, a…

Salmon Gravadlax

A whole salmon Gravadlax is a great centerpiece for any table when having friends around for dinner. I’ve used fennel, beetroot and blood oranges to transform this traditional Scandinavian dish into a visual and culinary delight that tastes as good…

Spaghetti with crispy bacon & rocket pesto

For a quick, delicious and tasty meal you can’t go past the combo of spaghetti, peppery rocket pesto and crispy salty bacon. This dish was born out of a need to use up the abundance of freshly grown rocket in my…

Spanish Chorizo Frittata

This really is a breakfast of champions. Packed with the flavours of Spain, nice and filling, and gluten-free. The most important ingredient in this recipe is the sausages, so make sure you buy the best possible fresh chorizo sausages as it…
