Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Pork, veal and fennel meatballs with spaghetti

    • digifish_books on May 06, 2015

      Uses 450g minced pork, 450g minced veal, 1 jar passata. Reduce fennel seeds to 1.5 teaspoons. Add sugar to the sauce, to taste.

  • Roasted garlic and pumpkin soup

    • pennyvr on June 15, 2015

      A subtle but rich flavour.

    • Yildiz100 on September 25, 2017

      Halved the recipe but forgot to halve the water and it was actually fine since I prefer a thinner soup. Tasty but needs texture. A really good crouton would make this really good. Using light cream (matlagnings gradde) means I hve to be careful of curdling, so next time I think I will go with whipping cream. The extra water I use means it is not too rich anyway. Halve the nutmeg.

  • Oven-roasted rib-eye steak with porcini and Port butter

    • saarwouters on September 18, 2017

      This port porcini butter was a great hit during a dinner party. We replaced the rib-eye for normal steaks, which we made in the oven. The butter is very quick and easy to make and makes the house smell great too.

  • Sticky lime and ginger chicken

    • jaxmiller on July 02, 2017

      Everyone really enjoyed this. I doubled the sauce and served with rice.

  • Brandy-roasted chicken with mushroom pearl barley

    • saarwouters on September 18, 2017

      A beautiful and delicious recipe for a fall dinner party, where you want to impress your guests with a whole chicken. The instructions were spot-on, so this was easy enough to make. It's a bit on the savory/sweet side, so we served it with a salad with fresh/bitter tones (grapefruit and red chicory).

  • Roasted green chicken curry

    • Cfowkes on February 17, 2015

      Also online Times Magazine http://www.thetimes.co.uk/tto/magazine/article4335039.ece

  • Vanilla and lemon curd cupcakes

    • Varundel on April 13, 2015

      Super, quick and easy vanilla cupcake recipe. Used homemade lemon curd and whipped cream for a delicious light-tasting filling.

  • Blueberry almond cake

    • Melanie on January 06, 2016

      Used a mix of blueberries and raspberries. The edges cooked well and were nice and golden but the middle needed longer so the skewer test wasn't the best approach.
