Tambor de Maiz/Cuban corn and chicken pie
Adapted From "Memories of a Cuban Kitchen."
One 2-3 pound chicken cut into pieces and skin removed (I use all thighs)
salt and pepper to taste

1/2 cup Spanish olive oil
2 medium-sized onions, finely chopped
2 medium-sized green...
This vegetarian dish is fairly straightforward and fast to make, providing you have already cooked the rice. The quantities make one serving but are easily multiplied up to feed more. The pickled red onion is a lovely contrast to the nutty tasting rice and the sweet pepper and corn. Use...
It is practically a cheese pie with potatoes and/or onions, sometimes speck ham is also added and is a typical regional recipe from Friuli Venezia Giulia, a region in north-east of Italy, whose capital is Trieste.
The consistency of Frico is soft, warm and stringy inside. There are two versions...
What is rather sad on a small-scale level these days (considering there are a lot of much larger-scale sadnesses going on) is that at taco bars the cheese to sprinkle on is at the end of the line, instead of near the hot items such as the refried beans or the beef. I like my taco cheese to...
I used a wonderful and historic British product known as Gentleman's Relish to make this. Its essentially an anchovy butter which is more anchovy than butter. The recipe is a secret! I've included a home-made version in the recipe here.

Thick cut ham slices
My first time making and eating these, so taste wise didn't really have a reference point. But was very happy after my first bite!!
500gms rib eye fillet sliced thinly
9 thin slices provolone cheese
3 crusty sourdough rolls
1 large brown onion chopped
1 green capsicum (bell...
Grilled cheese corn tortilla (instead of toast), with asparagus and ramps inside. You can see them peaking out!
What are ramps? Ramps are not just a way into a venue, that you need to climb, descend, or use roller skates for. They are veggies in the allium family. Their scientific name is...

Khachapuri are Georgian flatbreads - we first tried these at at a Russian restaurant and this week decided to try to replicate them at home. Some Khachapuri are boat-shaped open cheese pies with an egg in the middle, others have the cheese mix stuffed inside. I there are lots of recipes online...
I call this a loaf-cake because its a bit like a cross between bread and a heavy cake. It goes well with salad for a nice lunch but its tasty enough to eat on its own (especially toasted).
I know this is a bit of a vague recipe - the exact quantities of the vegetables aren't specified but you...

I posted a mini-frittata recipe previously that was meant to be healthy: no cheese! This comes together similarly, but is quite different.
1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon bacon grease
6 ounces Brussels Sprouts, chopped
3 large garlic cloves, diced
2 ounces ham, cut into cubes
Strong cheddar and melty mild mozzarella with pickled hot jalapeño peppers make up this spicy omelette filling. The tomato salsa adds a fresh tangy contrast. I used chives and fresh oregano in the salsa as its what I had to hand, but coriander leaves would be good (probably better!). I usually...
