FRESH GOAT'S CHEESE WITH SMASHED BROAD BEANS ON TOAST. 05/07/14
A good rule to remember is that if your broad beans are bigger than a 1p coin, you probably should peel them if you want to eat them raw - the skin can be pretty tough. You can make the smashed broad beans the day before. Do use goat's curd instead if you can get hold of it. Read more

TAGLIATELLE WITH LEMON, CREME FRAICHE AND ROCKET. 10/05/14
I couldn’t write about crème fraîche without including a recipe based on this River Café classic.

Make the sauce while the pasta is cooking. Read more
RHUBARB AND CREME FRAICHE GALETTE. 10/05/14
This tart is a riff on rhubarb and custard, and far simpler than it looks. The key to success with this pastry is to not overwork it. I find a food processor the best thing to use. Read more

CRAB AND CHORIZO FRIED BROWN RICE. 08/03/14
Though this dish is usually the perfect receptacle for using leftovers, I’ve decided to make a deluxe version using crab. If you have brown meat, stir that in too. Sriracha is a tangy (and fairly fierce) Thai chili sauce. Read more

This needs to marinate overnight, but it's worth the wait. You can find gochujang and tenjang at speciality Asian stores or online. Read more
JAPCHAE. 28/02/14
The most authentic way of making this is to fry all the ingredients separately and then combine them at the end, but I think that perhaps life is a bit short for all that. If you have any other vegetables at the bottom of your fridge, feel free to include them too. Glass noodles can be found at all Asian supermarkets. Read more
KOREAN JEON. 28/02/14
Spring onions or kimchi — a concoction of fermented vegetables available in Asian food stores and supermarkets — are the most popular additions to these pancakes. Read more

DUCK AND POTATO MASSAMAN. 04/01/14
This is based on the curries made by the Muslims (or “massamans”) of southern Thailand; it uses the aromatic spices found in Indian, Malay and Indonesian cuisine as well as the fresh fruits and roots of mainstream Thai cooking. It may seem like a bit of a hassle to make your own massaman paste (though you can use the pre-made stuff if you want), but you will definitely taste the difference. You will need to precook your duck for this. This would be further improved, dare I say it, by making your own coconut milk! Read more
LENTIL AND VEGETABLE SAMBAR. 04/01/14
You can use shop-bought garam masala, but home-made is of course much better. Any vegetables work in this dish, such as aubergine, sweetcorn, but I thought I’d go the wintry, root-vegetable route. Read more

CHRISTMAS PALMIERS. 06/12/13
You can flavour these with anything you want, sweet or savoury. Mince pie ingredients would be Christmassy; but this recipe is more versatile. Shop-bought puff pastry makes these a doddle: place the rolls in the freezer and simply slice off the palmiers and throw them in the oven 15 minutes before people arrive. Read more
WILD MUSHROOM ARANCINI. 06/12/13
Shape the risotto into balls and freeze so all you need to do is coat them and fry them when guests arrive. For a vegetarian version, use vegetable stock and vegetarian Parmesan-style cheese. Read more
SPINACH AND CHEESE BOREKS. 06/12/13
These can be kept raw in the freezer, ready for when people turn up. Puff pastry is fine too if you don’t want the faff of filo. They’ll just be slightly less delicate. Read more
PORK RILLONS. 06/12/13
A provincial French classic, these are basically confit pork belly. They’re perfect for canapés as you preserve them in their own fat so you can keep them in the fridge for the whole of the festive period, ready to be reheated when guests arrive. Read more
MISSISSIPPI MUD PIE. 24/11/13

SPICED GAME SAUSAGE ROLLS. 08/11/13
Any game would be good in this, particularly a mix, but I think the stronger tasting varieties such as grouse and pigeon would be particularly delicious. There’s lots of pepper, which makes the rolls satisfyingly fiery. If you want to make smaller ones, just bake for less time. Read more
GAME PIE. 08/11/13
You can use whatever game you have available — pigeon, quail, pheasant and partridge would all be nice here. I like having some meat off the bone and some on the bone — you could even leave a grouse leg sticking out for effect. This pastry is rich and decadent, the perfect match to the leanness of game. Read more
CACCIATORE SAUCE WITH BAKED POLENTA. 08/11/13
Alla cacciatore means ‘‘hunter-style’’ and is often seen on the menus of Italian restaurants. Do include any livers and kidneys as this will only make it more delicious. This would also be fantastic with pasta. Read more
ROASTED PIGEON AND POACHED QUINCE SALAD. 08/11/13
You can use any bird here, but I like the tenderness of pigeon in salad Read more
BEEF TAGINE WITH GREEN OLIVES. 04/11/13
You ideally want to cook this in a tagine very slowly on the stove, but in the absence of that, a large pan is fine. Traditionally you don’t brown the meat, but I often do to give it some extra oomph. Read more

MARCELLA HAZAN'S APPLE CAKE. 25/10/13
I’ve always thought of Marcella Hazan as more of a savoury person, but the few desserts she does are simple and delicious. I’ve adjusted this slightly by using grappa instead of rum. This is not your average cake, however, it’s almost more like a clafoutis than a sponge. Read more
APPLE & DAMSON CHARLOTTES. 11/10/13
You will need ramekins – or dariole moulds – for this. If using Bramley apples, you will need to use quite a bit more sugar to sweeten them. Replace the rum with any other alcohol, or just use water. You can use blackberries instead of damsons if you want to. Read more

GRILLED PORK CHOPS WITH SPICY MIGAS. 11/10/13
I’m a huge fan of migas but find that they can sometimes be a bit soggy, so I tend not to soak my bread beforehand as is traditional – I prefer a good crunch. Read more
CHARD AND ONION PANADE. 11/10/13
This is my version of a panade made legendary by Judy Rodgers of the Zuni café in California. I’ve added anchovies as I think it really benefits from a salty kick.   Read more

TABBOULEH. 06/09/13
To get the best flavour out of herbs slice them, as opposed to chopping them. Just roll them into a tight cigar and use your sharpest knife — don’t be tempted to chuck them into the food processor as it bruises them. Read more

HOME-CURED BACON. 12/07/13
Saltpetre is a preserving agent that kills bacteria, but it’s quite hard to find. Try convincing your butcher to give you some (you only need a tiny amount), or you can find it on the internet. Curing salt is a fine alternative, but follow the packet instructions as you will need less of it. You will also need a non-metallic container that fits in the fridge. Read more

BEER-BATTERED FISH WITH PINE NUT TARATOR. 31/05/13

ASPARAGUS WITH BAGNA CAUDA SAUCE. 24/05/13
Originating from northern Italy, this dish celebrates anchovy and fresh young garlic — two of my favourite things. It is traditionally served with crunchy raw vegetables but it is also great with lightly boiled veg too. The sauce is perfect for anchovy fiends.  Read more

You can use other herbs such as basil or parsley, but marjoram is always the winner with me. Read more
SPANISH TORTILLA. 17/05/13
You really want to make sure you use waxy potatoes in this recipe, as they hold their shape better. The amount of oil might seem a bit shocking, but you pour most of it off – and it really does make a difference to the flavour. People traditionally use a plate to turn the tortilla over, but I often just place the (ovenproof) pan under the grill. Read more
