Stir Fried Pork with Basil (2)

This is a relatively mild version of the Thai classic Pad Kra Pao but if you like you could add three or four more garlic cloves and extra chillies. The recipe is from ” Dominique’s Kitchen” by Dominique Woolf. Its a quick dish to prepare and cook so makes a great midweek supper,

Giant Cheese on Toast (6)

A fancy cheese on toast for brunch . You can cut it up into quarters and serve with a crisp salad for lunch or dinner. Or you can cut into smaller squares and serve as a sharing snack. The recipe is from ” Mezcla” by Ixta Belfrage and can be doubled for a crowd.

Chicken Fajitas (8)

This used to be my go to recipe for chicken fajitas and despite many years passing its still a favourite. It came from a BBC Good Food magazine but i have no idea who the author was. You can use raw prawns or beef instead of the chicken if you like.

Patatas Bravas (4)

A very good version of this Spanish classic from ” Moorish” by Ben Tish. There have been many times in Spain recently where I have been served these with a mixture of mayo and tomato ketchup and been somewhat disappointed . And the chips are very good on their own too.

Beef Bulgogi with Sushi Rice (4)

A Korean dish of marinated meat and my go to dish whenever i visit my local restaurant Per and Kor. Its run by a lovely couple- she is Korean and he is Persian and I have never been disappointed with the food although there can be a bit of a wait. They serve their Bulgogi with crunchy lettuce leaves to wrap the beef. This version is from ” A Flash in the Pan” by John Whaite. Start making this in the morning to give the beef plenty of time to marinate.
