Notes about Recipes in this book

  • 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.

  • Caramel slice

    • nadiam1000 on July 07, 2020

      Excellent version of one of my favorite desserts and this one came together easily and tasted delicious. Will definitely make again. Quite sweet but it is a caramel slice...

  • How to cook - beef stir-fry

    • njdavison on June 15, 2019

      Didn’t have mange tout or the herbs, so used broccolini and capsicum. Very good.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Sticky lime and ginger chicken

    • jaxmiller on July 02, 2017

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

  • 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.

  • 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).

  • 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.

  • How to cook - lemon-poached chicken
