The key to packing flavour into this simple 15 minute pasta is in using the prawn heads and rendering them in some good quality olive oil which creates a fragrant prawn oil and becomes the base of the sauce.
Temaki is a really simple and interactive way to enjoy sushi because once everything is on the table, everyone can just roll their own temaki with a layer of rice on a nori sheet, add their own fillings and then roll into a quick cone shape and enjoy!
This morning’s craving for a sweet, warm brekkie had me taking two overripe bananas from my fruit bowl and making pancakes. I kept it fairly simple with just some pepesaya butter and maple syrup to drench the pancakes in something rich and sweet.
Bánh Flan is a Vietnamese version of a Creme Caramel. In this version, I’ve used a mixture of cream and milk for the flan, whilst some versions sometimes use condensed milk to make it extra sweet and rich. The caramel in Bánh Flan is typically a little darker too, which gives a slightly more bitter taste to contrast the rich flan.
Tzatziki is such an easy dairy dip to make at home in 5 minutes. I made this batch and had it as a snack alongside some warmed pita and then used the rest in sandwiches for lunch for the rest of the week.
Casunziei all'ampezzana (Beetroot ravioli with poppy seeds)
A pasta that originates from northern Italy in the Veneto region. The shape is distinctive as it looks like little bon bons and once boiled, the bright filling brightens through the middle section of the pasta and looks like candy.

An American Italian style pasta made famous by New York institutions like Carbone. The tomato paste makes it savoury and flavourful, the vodka acts as a solvent and brings out the flavours the cream makes it rich and rounded and the chilli oil takes it to another level. It is truly one of those perfect sauces where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.
One of my favourite Vietnamese recipes, that I grew up eating. ‘Bún’ means vermicelli noodles and ’thịt nướng’ translates to grilled meat, so it simply means ‘Grilled Meat Noodles’. It's one of those perfect meals to make during the week, especially as it gets warmer!
After making pizzas from scratch at home for the last year I've been trying so many different recipes and tweaking each ingredients ratio every time and I think I've finally perfected it! This is as close as I can get to a Neapolitan style pizza, which is my favourite.

If you ever travel to Tuscany they do a lot of ragu served with pappardelle, which is a wider fettuccine-style pasta. The lamb ragu recipe is a four hour slow cook so it’s great to start cooking in the morning and serve as a warming Sunday night meal with family or friends.
