The combination of richly yolked organic hen’s eggs, crispy, salty pancetta and our new-season broad beans ensures that this protein-rich take on a Caesar salad is not only filling but wonderfully satisfying too. We love this as a quick mid-week supper dish, or piled onto big platters as part of a leisurely lunch on summer weekends.
With no kneading or proving required, soda bread is the perfect loaf for those just beginning on a bread making journey. Quick and simple to put together, it is by no means a loaf exclusively for beginners. Prepare and bake if you are suddenly out of bread in the house, serve in hearty chunks with warm soup, or alongside smoked mackerel pâté, fresh salad leaves and pickled cucumber as a rustic starter. But without fail, the very best way to serve this delicious loaf is warm from the oven with generous layers of homemade butter – just as we do on our ARTISAN BREAD MAKING courses at our COOKERY SCHOOL.
With their rich sweet flesh, sweet potatoes are a vibrant and versatile replacement for potatoes or squash in scores of dishes. They are packed with plenty of vitamin A, vitamin C, magnesium and potassium. They’ll cook a little faster than a conventional spud, which means they can be sliced and baked with no parboiling first. They have a light spiciness to their flesh which marries well with the harissa and cumin in the lentils. Please note, the tinned lentils do have a tendency to lump together in the tin; this is normal and once rinsed they separate again.
If you like to add a sweet touch to your winter dishes, this is the perfect recipe for you!
New and exciting flavors add a special something to our heart-warming classic pumpkin soup. The ingredients are simple: blended pumpkin, water, leek, pink pepper, salt, olive oil and herbs. The game changer? Panettone! Yes, the traditional Italian Christmas cake, toasted and served in place of classic croutons. Unforgettable.
Dressed while still warm, the tiny new potatoes in this salad absorb masses of flavour from the herbs and miso in the bright green dressing. Whether served warm or allowed to cool, this is a lighter and more nutritious take on traditional potato salads and allows you to use any combination of your favourite herbs and leaves. If you aren’t able to lay your hands on pea shoots, then a handful of rocket or watercress will work perfectly.
