A whole roast chicken katsu curry combines two brilliant comfort foods: a chicken katsu curry and a roast chicken. This easy recipe comes with side dishes for roast cauliflower and tangy lemon rice to make this a complete meal.
Winter time means pie time. That usually means something packed with meat, a lovely gravy and crisp pastry. I’m certainly not going to get involved in the “should it have pastry all round the sides” debate. You enjoy your pie however you like it. In one of Jamie’s recent “5 ingredient” m...

I was going away at the weekend, so there was no sense in getting a weekly shop in. So I had to improvise. So what have I got in the fridge? ... half an onion ... a few slices of salami ... half a cauliflower ... half a tub of mascarpone ... It wasn't looking promising but I was in an experimental mood.

If you can't love a good steak, Sainsbury's have released a new steak that'll scratch your itch. Their new bone-in sirloin is a treat perfect for two people. It's unusual for a supermarket to offer a bone-in steak but this is a welcome deviation from the norm. With the bone left in the joint you get more variation in cooking and generally the fun of gnawing on a bone after serving! [ 76 more words ]

Try my sage and onion roast potatoes:

Sage and onion. What does that conjure up when you read those words? To me, it means a savoury feast is heading my way. It’s synonymous with stuffing to me, an essential piece of a roast chicken dinner. Do you know what else is essential? A perfect roast potato. So why don’t we combine the two? Onio...

My daughter’s been learning to ‘magpie’ her writing at school. It’s a cute way to summarise: if you read something that you like, a turn of phrase that’s cool, or a way of describing in an interesting way, borrow it – magpie it. Just like the bird, take something you like and stitch it into somethin...
