Notes about Recipes in this book

  • 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.

  • Crab and Sriracha mac 'n' cheese

    • sarahj22 on December 14, 2019

      Insanely good - a real treasure of a recipe. I thought the sriracha might overpower the delicate crab but the flavours are beautifully balanced. The crab makes the dish feel very indulgent, but it's also delicious if you omit it for a cheaper veggie version. I was making this a bit too often for such a rich dish, so I now make a version where I omit the crab and swap the pasta for a combination of broccoli and cauliflower, for an indulgent midweek veggie main (though I'll still make the original for a weekend treat). I increase the amount of breadcrumbs for extra crunch and sometimes extend the cooking time to ensure the top is super crispy. So delicious.

  • 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.
