A poori is an Indian deep-fried bread. These banana poori are an excellent accompaniment to a chicken, lamb or vegetable curry, or can be sprinkled with sugar and eaten as a sweet snack. They are quite delicious but their preparation does involve deep-frying in very hot oil, so if you are cooking with children they will need assistance but the result is definitely worth it!
Fish, ginger, red pepper
This baked fish recipe uses a whole snapper cooked in a North African chermoula, with red peppers.
This cheesy bread and butter pudding is one of the best brunch dishes I have come across. It has to be prepared the night before, which makes for a flying start the next day.
This chicken casserole from the Beaujolais has become a favourite dish in Parisian bistros over the last few years. The quality of the vinegar is important, and it is also important that the vinegar be reduced over a high heat so the finished dish has an interesting tang rather than being too sharp.
This pie is perfect picnic fare, when one needs maximum satisfaction with every bite!
