  • Pasta and truffle pesto

    Wednesday June 20th, 2012

    There’s no two ways about it, the Italian food philosophy is one of the world’s most effective and gratifying. It works on two fundamental principles: quality ingredients and classic flavour combinations. It follows then that authentic Italian dining is simple to emulate at home and this recipe for Truffle Pesto Pasta is a case in point.

  • Gluten Free Japanese Pan-fried Pork and Prawn Gyoza

    Wednesday June 20th, 2012

    Gyoza dumplings are typically made with wheat based wrappers. This recipe uses more readily available rice paper. Using rice paper only really lends itself to pan frying and not to the steamed equivalent which is so popular in Japan.  The advantages of using rice paper though are that it is gluten free, you don’t have to order ingredients online and they are thinner which means more room for the delicious filling.

This recipe adds a sophisticated twist on the classic by using another Portuguese favourite: almond custard.  Apples, gooey caramel and brandy seal the deal… and why on earth not.

  • Paneer & Vegetable Skewers

    Vegetarians often get a raw deal at barbecues: a side salad just isn’t enough! The Indian cheese paneer is very versatile, tastes great grilled, tandoori-style and is now widely available in supermarkets. These skewers are full flavoured, have lots of texture and are very satisfying regardless of whether you are a vegetarian or not. Tandoori food is often served with sliced or chopped tomatoes, red onions and cucumbers seasoned and drizzled in lemon juice, and some green chutney.
