Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Cauliflower soup with Waldorf garnish

    • debkellie on April 14, 2015

      This was a delightful combination - the crunch of the "Waldorf' garnish really complemented the soup. Would make a nice dinner party starter.

  • A recipe to make coconuts wobble

    • debkellie on April 14, 2015

      Check the strength/size of your gelatine leaves!. My wobble was a slurry on first hit. Obviously his gold gelatine leaves & my gold gelatine leaves had very different sizes/strengths. Needed to remelt and reinforce (doubled the gelatine for the quantity created by the ingredients). But in the end a delightful and light dessert. The chilli sauce was just right with one long red chilli.

  • Warm Middle Eastern herb salad with zucchini, pepitas, crispy chickpeas and a lemon tzatziki dressing

    • KarinaFrancis on February 01, 2021

      This recipe is easier than the way the recipe is written would have you believe. The flavours are best when the components all get to mingle together and the pepitas are a great addition. I’ll make this again!

  • The simplest instant dough for flatbread, naans or pizzas

    • poppiesandpavlovas on February 26, 2016

      Makes lovely pizza dough. I let it rest for an hour because I had time, divided in two and pushed it out as thinly as possible. Batch fed three comfortably. Cooked with toppings on a preheated tray at 200 degrees fan bake. Would definitely make again.

  • 3 ways with chicken mince: Thai chicken sausage rolls

    • lou_weez on August 09, 2017

      Easy to make and easy to eat. They freeze well before being cooked, no need to thaw, just cook from frozen. Will be serving these as finger food at the next party.

  • Butter chicken

    • lou_weez on July 20, 2021

      This was delicious! I didn't love having to puree the tomatoes and then push the mixture through a sieve (I probably should have read the recipe thoroughly before beginning), but it did yield a worthwhile result.

  • Thai pumpkin soup

    • lou_weez on June 20, 2017

      This was really delicious. I held back 1 cup of water as I like a thicker consistency. The recipe said serves 8, but it was more 4-6 (maybe if I had added the water there would have been more soup). Will definitely make this again.

  • Blackened lamb backstraps with Turkish muhammara

    • fairyduff on April 14, 2020

      Matt's column today; rub instant coffee into lamb shoulder, stud with garlic slivers and rosemary. Roast. 15 mins at 200C and then 2 hours or more at 140C
