Bangladeshi Lamb Biryani

An amazingly tasty and super easy Biryani. A few tweaks by the team at HelloFresh and it's now super easy. I loved this dish there, was so much flavour. I am sure using chunks of lamb rather than lamb mince would be more traditional and change the whole makeup of the dish. The mince though [...]

Thai Spiced Stargazer

This is a great meal, the stargazer is a fantastically flavourful fish. If you can't find it you could substitute it for monk fish. The other flavours are strong so you need a fish that can handle its own on the plate. In the wild the stargazer is an amazing fish that can be venomous [...]

Caramelised Halloumi with Minted Freekeh Pilaf and Roasted Red Pepper

Apart from in Cyprus where it originated the UK has apparently exceeded all other european countries in its consumption of Halloumi cheese. It's not hard to understand why.

Caribbean Spicy Sausages

Just try and stop your mouth watering. Look at the colours, vibrant, fresh and what it all boils down to, damn tasty. Take a good old English tradition and turn it on its head. This dish did it perfectly. Spicy sausages with roasted vegetables samothered in mango chutney and jerk seasoning revive this often dull and [...]
