Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Aubergine, courgette and halloumi bake

    • JJ2018 on June 04, 2019

      This was really tasty. I halved the recipe but used the full amount of halloumi. Stew was very wet but sauce was delicious mopped up with granary bread.

  • Clementine and cardamom upside-down cake

    • Foodycat on January 20, 2018

      I made a half quantity in a loaf tin because otherwise this is a huge cake - cooked it for 45 minutes at 160C fan. It worked very well, although you need a very sharp knife to cut the clementines and my clementines must have been completely tasteless: I was expecting a citrussy zing and the fruit is just damp. I didn't glaze it (and my caramel crystallised) but if I make it again I'll glaze it with some marmalade to restore the flavour.
