Simple fish cakes

Fish cakes are classic comfort food and make an easy, relaxed supper with friends. Use any white fish or salmon but avoid oily fish or the texture will be heavy.

A great one-pot dish, our quick and easy chicken casserole makes a delicious, comforting mid-week meal. Saves on the washing up, too!

Spaghetti carbonara

A classic carbonara never fails to impress. Make it for a simple supper for two or when you have friends over at the weekend. We love it with parmesan and lots of freshly ground black pepper. 

Hot and smoky beef chilli

The ultimate crowd pleaser, our beef chilli recipe feeds up to 10 people. Made with chipotle chilli and fresh green chilli this is has a healthy kick! Serve with guacamole and rice.

Fish pie

Chicken cacciatore

This Italian classic is one of our most popular chicken recipes. Serve with a short pasta such as fusilli, or a big bowl of potatoes roasted with olive oil and rosemary.

Roasted butternut squash with goat’s cheese

Butternut squash is a delicious vegetable to stuff with tomatoes, peppers, breadcrumbs and then top with cheese. It comes out of the oven golden and bubbling, a great side dish or vegetarian main.  

Moroccan meatballs with herb couscous

These spiced lamb meatballs in a rich tomato sauce are best served with a buttery coriander and parsley couscous.

Thai salmon with cucumber and dipping sauce

This sweet and fragrant marinade makes salmon special and also works on chicken breasts, white fish fillets and steaks. 

Prosciutto-wrapped chicken with garlic mash

Stuffed chicken breasts is a classic dinner party pleaser. Wrapping the chicken in Parma ham helps lock in the juicy chicken flavour. 


Make our delicious, light pavlova the day before, then whip the cream and prepare the fruit at the last minute for the ultimate hassle-free dessert. 

Banoffee pie

Banoffee pie is a much loved family favourite. This easy recipe is packed with banana, cream and an oaty-biscuit base, decorated with a drizzle of dark chocolate.

Baked raspberry cheesecake

It looks amazing and is very easy to make. The fresh raspberries cut through the rich vanilla cheesecake.

Muscovado carrot cake

This may well be your new favourite carrot cake. We’ve added muscovado sugar for a richer flavour, golden sultanas and pecans for texture and a shot of syrup to sweeten the frosting.
