Lemon Trifle

This is an intensely lemony, dreamy dessert that falls somewhere between a trifle and a tiramisu. Though there are a few steps, they’re all very easy – and very worth it. As you work through the recipe, use a fine zester for the lemons, taking care not to zest the bitter white pith. Speaking ofContinue reading “Lemon Trifle”

Beef Stew

A simple, classic beef stew done really well is a complete joy. However, it isn’t always done well, which I think is why so many people think of stews as a bit depressing. The difference between an amazing stew and a mediocre one is like the difference between a warm hug and a limp handshake.Continue reading “Beef Stew”

Orange Rosemary Roast Chicken with Sweet Potato and Carrot Puree

Otherwise known as Orange Chicken with Orange Mash. I love chicken legs for this because you get huge flavour from the bone, no carving required. (Legs also offer great value.) However, for those breast-inclined among you, four skin-on, bone-in chicken breasts would be just fine, too, though you’d need to reduce the cooking time slightly.Continue reading “Orange Rosemary Roast Chicken with Sweet Potato and Carrot Puree”

Chicken, Mushroom & Broccoli Bake

This dish reminds me of a dinner my mum used to make for me – she took an uncharacteristic shortcut and made hers with cream of broccoli soup, as I recall. For me, it is comfort and nostalgia on a plate. This version dispenses with the tin of soup, but I redress the balance byContinue reading “Chicken, Mushroom & Broccoli Bake”

Slow-Roasted Shoulder of Lamb

The whole point of a weekend is finding time to enjoy oneself, separate and apart from the monotony of a working week.

A slow-roasted shoulder of lamb will happily look after itself while I spendContinue reading “Slow-Roasted Shoulder of Lamb”
