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.
The gin & tonic combination in these poached pears came about sort of by accident due to having no wine opener (or wine for that matter) in our new place to make my usual poaching recipe, but the G&T version turned out to be a real revelation – the gin gives a light bitterness that works beautifully as a counterpoint to the sweet fruitiness of the pear, and the various aromatics flavour the syrup beautifully.
Until I tried this ice cream, I never really realised how much I liked the flavour of oats, or even that I could recognize ‘oat’ as a distinctive taste. Oats have a lovely flavour though, with a full, rich, biscuity taste when toasted; creamy and calming when infused with the milk in this lovely ice cream.
