Smoked over pinewood to achieve its unusual, brewed-over-campfire taste, lapsang souchong tea is great for infusing a fabulously smoky flavour into foods. Try the technique with these deliciously tender lapsang souchong poached chicken breasts, which are ideal for a light supper with friends.
Looking for a dessert that even your health conscious pals will enjoy? Although this blueberry & yogurt cloud cake is made with no butter or oil, barely any sugar and just a sprinkle of flour it somehow becomes a magnificent, towering cake with a wonderfully fluffy texture and a beautiful subtly sweet, lemony flavour – a triumph by any standards.
With sunshine on tap over the last few weeks, I’ve been broadening my BBQ repertoire with new flavour combinations for the grill. One of my best discoveries was this delicious beef kofta burger with crunchy veg; tangy pickles, lemony houmous yogurt & crumbled feta; AKA a full Middle Eastern feast in a bun, and it’s exactly as good as that sounds.
Taking inspiration from the restaurant-style kievs I love so much, and adding a little extra ooziness just because, I recently came up with these very yummy mozzarella, rosemary & chilli breaded chicken cutlets. I would call them Kievs, but that term is somewhat sacrosanct to me, so cutlets it is. Give them a go, I think you’ll love them too.
