Orange & Cinnamon Brioche

Tags: , , ,

Brioche is an enriched sweet bread often eaten at special occasions in France. This is a recipe for a 1kg loaf but you can make these into small individual brioches if you like, and add any sweet spices such as nutmeg, cloves and even saffron.

Fiery Steak Frites

Tags: , , , ,

As you know I love to add spices into all my dishes to create excitement and although I agree that some recipes should be left alone, I do adore spicing up this one. This classic steak and fries has been fired up with chillies and your basic pantry spice staples, and I love it with wedges rather than fries to reduce the hassle of deep frying.

Sweetly Spiced Plum Muffins

Tags: ,

Muffins are great for breakfast or even as a treat, and the scents of sweet spices fill the air whilst they are baking. Easy to make and perfect to get the kids helping in the kitchen.

Deliciously Rich Fruit Cake

Tags: , , , ,

Everyone needs a good tried and tested rich fruit cake recipe up their sleeve. Whether you ‘feed’ it with brandy, marsala or alcohol of your choice is upto you, but make sure you make it a few weeks before you plan on eating it. It tastes much better if you let the cake mature, and if you are going to ice it then leave it to dry out around 1 week before so the icing sticks!

Slow Cooked Spiced Lamb

Slow cooking is a great way to extract as much flavour as possible, and spices will only get better the longer you have to infuse them.

Miso Chilli Wings

Tags: , , , , , ,

These chicken wings pack a punch. I’m using my favourite chilli sauce, Sriracha, to add some heat, but use whatever you can get your hands on. Anything fiery will work amazingly.

King Prawn & Coconut Fry

Tags: ,

When I thought of this recipe I wanted to borrow flavours from the south of India but then add some of the ingredients I love. So here it is…not exactly as you would have it on the shores of India but not that far off.

You can serve this a starter and it will serve 6 – 8 people depending how hungry you are, or as a main course for 4 people.

Basic White Loaf

Every keen baker needs a good go-to basic white loaf recipe, and this is mine.

Hot Smoky Nuts

Tags:

I love the flavour combo in this recipe – sweet, sour, salty, hot and smoky. I’ve kept my spice mix pretty basic but you can really mix it up and add in whatever you fancy from your spice pantry.

Roasted Chilli & Carrot Soup

Tags: , ,

When chillies are roasted their flavour completely changes, and it is sweet as well as hot.
