I’ve garnered a wealth of bread-making knowledge from many sources, the most influential being Dan Lepard and Ken Forkish. I decided to combine a Lepard recipe and Forkish technique to bake one of the best breads so far – the sour cream loaf. It has a delicious, tangy faux sourdough flavour and makes the most amazing toast.
Christmas leftovers never seem to run out, the most recent festive season was no exception. We had some smoked ham in the fridge, so I made smoked ham and mushroom carbonara. It turned out to be a diverse and tasty twist on the Italian classic.
Sometimes referred to as “brisket on a stick”, slow cooked beef short ribs are rich, meaty and incredibly tasty. A guaranteed winner at dinner parties and BBQ events, this hedonistic dish is very easy to cook, rewarding the patience of the chef.
Cold winter evenings demand meals to warm both body and soul. This scrumptious side dish of smokey chipotle beans does just that, and is perfect to accompany a range of main courses. Or served with a baked potato cooked in an open fire.
