The best way to begin you dinner party.
These Baked Oysters Mornay are so fun (and sort of messy) to make and even more fun to eat. They work well for a light dinner with a glass of white wine or as a starter for dinner guests.
My very favourite Zen Buddhist vegan dish. Can be a starter or main.
Just like the restaurant-version, except it’s so much cheaper to make right at home and it tastes a million times better too.
This version works well as a delicate starter leaving space for a more hearty meal or as part of a platter of nibbles before an evening out providing satisfying flavour without being too filling.
The best brunch or starter.
It has chicken, cheese, bbq sauce, bacon and jalapeno...and yes, it's as good as you are dreaming it is.
These bacon wrapped brussels sprouts are already fantastic by themselves, but they are even better with the mayo dip.
Tender cabbage wrapped in bacon and baked in the oven, this makes the perfect side dish.
Bacon-wrapped shrimp! Ridiculously good, grilled or roasted in the oven, and seasoned with chilli and lime. Perfect for your next backyard BBQ.
Made with a slightly sweet and yellow-coloured dough that is usually found in cha chaan teng dinner rolls.
Known as aspara nikumaki in Japanese. Aspara means asparagus, niku means beef and maki means roll or wrap. In this dish, thinly sliced beef is marinated in a sweet and savoury soy glaze, then wrapped around blanched asparagus spears and pan-cooked.
Crispy fried egg rolls stuffed with ground beef, cabbage and delicious seasonings. A creation that goes well with any Chinese dish. The sherry makes it even better.
It may take some time and practice when it comes to making these, but it's well worth it. Just boil them in water, and serve hot with soy sauce, or add them to a soup.
Black pudding, morcilla or boudin noir. This is good served on toasted bread as part of a tapas feast or it makes a great starter or tasty brunch.
'Compleating' is eating to reduce food waste and to get the maximum goodness out of your veges. These broccoli stalk fritters paired with lemon yoghurt sauce will feed the whole family.
