Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Overnight roasted pork shoulder

    • Astrid5555 on November 20, 2016

      Only made the pork shoulder part of the recipe without the potato & fennel gratin. Big hit with the family, very little preparation time needed the night before and a lovely smell to wake up to. Served with mashed potatoes, which were perfect in combination with the delicious gravy.

  • Mighty Greek moussaka

    • Astrid5555 on October 10, 2014

      Very time consuming recipe with lots of different steps involved, i.e. cook potatoes, roast potatoes before even layering them up for the final Moussaka and again baking the final dish in the oven. I skipped simmering the white sauce for 15 minutes, but once thickened just used it. Preparation time of almost 3 hours aside, a very good and tasty Moussaka. Will make again when I have nothing else to do.

  • Parathas

    • eliza on March 08, 2017

      This wasn't my favourite flatbread recipe. I found the dough to be a bit dry, and also lacking in salt (Just a pinch in 600 g of flour), so I increased to about 1/2 a teaspoon. I tried rolling out the breads in the style illustrated, but I found that didn't work for me and resorted to rolling them out in the normal way. These worked fairly well, producing a reasonably good flatbread, but probably won't repeat.

  • Nasi goreng

    • Melanie on June 01, 2016

      We thought this was delicious, will definitely make again. Cook the rice one night ahead.

    • VineTomato on June 12, 2017

      Perfect for a quick weeknight dinner, with a nice mix of veg, rice and eggs.

  • Shepherd's pie

    • Jas on October 16, 2014

      This is absolutely delicious, however be prepared for the time consumed, you have to cook the lamb for three hours, then prepare the vegetables I did this whilst waiting for the lamb, then you need to shred the lamb, place with the vegetables cook this for 40 minutes then transfer to the oven with the mashed potatoes and then cook for another hour, so in total about five hours, was absolutely worth it though!

  • Chicken Kiev

    • Jas on October 16, 2014

      Another super recipe by Jamie, I made loaded potatoes with this recipe, family loved it.

  • Sticky Chinese ribs

    • Jas on October 16, 2014

      very easy and you don't need to marinate the ribs

  • Devil's double choc malt cookies

    • Jas on October 16, 2014

      I didn't have plain carnation milk, I used the caramel carnation and it worked a treat! Best thing about this recipe no egg, so the cookies keep for ages!

  • Gorgeous gado-gado

    • VineTomato on June 12, 2017

      Surprisingly good. First time I had made gado-gado so didn't know what to expect. As I was preparing the dish I was quite dubious about how it would turn out. Turns out it is pretty delicious. I then had it again at an Indonesian restaurant in Amsterdam and I have to say this recipe was pretty close. Very good and healthy too.

  • Insanity burger

    • VineTomato on June 12, 2017

      This recipe contains a great tip for cooking the burger with a mustard coating - works brilliantly.

  • Best bun cha bowls

    • VineTomato on June 12, 2017

      Lovely meal, we left the pork out for a veggie version.

  • The Jaffa cake

    • Chopchopchoppin on March 26, 2015

      Worth the time - amazing flavours of whiskey and marmalade, marzipan makes the cake layers super moist

  • Chicken tikka masala

    • ithyt on August 12, 2016

      8.16 Delicious - would definitely make again. Would be great addition to curry night. I didn't skewer my chicken I just pan fried it then added it to the sauce.

    • danielh7645 on October 06, 2015

      Amazing curry - the initial cooking of the chicken in the spices before adding wet ingredients makes this so much better than other recipes i have tried

  • Double vanilla ice cream

    • ithyt on September 13, 2015

      6.15 Curdled at Stage 4 - approx. 6 mins. 6.15 Take Two - Lowest heat on smallest ring - took approx. 12mins.

  • Big British meatballs

    • lou_weez on October 07, 2018

      These were really good. I used smoked cheddar for the meatballs and a mixture of potato and sweet potato for the mash. A great recipe for those long rainy days where there's not much else to do.
